    It Actually Works..

    If laughter did not exist, I would be a very miserable person and my life would be pointless to be living. I'm always stressed out and depressed but my sense of humor and laughter is what keeps me sane!!

    So.

     Yeah... I laugh at everything. Even at inappropriate things. But, if I didn't laugh, I'd just cry and I'd rather not do that.
