    Inappropriate Laughter??

    Yes, I laughed so hard at something while a friend was sitting there with a hurt look on his face. All the while I was trying to say "I'm sorry", but I was laughing too hard to get it out. I had heard a joke the day before about a woman praying beneath a tree asking for the lord...

    Laughing At Sad Situations...

    For some reason I find terrible sad things funny. Like I know I shouldnt be laughing, but I litterally cant help it, litterally. For example, I was at work listening to a co-workers story about her friend who died in an elevator accident. She was so serious telling me the story...

    I Should Have Trusted My Gut

    So, I laugh pretty much whenever I am nervous. However, I think the worst time I started laughing was during my vows at my wedding to my soon to be ex husband. As soon as the Justice of the piece had him say the part about being faithful I just started to laugh. Now he had...

    It's Because of My Observance.

    I am one of those people (yeah, those people) that finds many, many things hilarious. I'm easily amused. By crude jokes, silly TV shows, you name it. Not annoyingly so, but I do laugh more than the average person. I think that my laughing at inappropriate moments...

    I Can't Help It...

    If something's funny, then chances are that I'll laugh. I know, it's not polite. I'm working on it.

    Your Lion Eyes

    Did anyone read the story about the couple in Africa who were having sex in the bushes? Apparently a Lion came by and mauled the woman. The guy got away and ran to the nearby road and tried to flag down help. Unfortunately, people weren't too eager to stop for a naked man...

    Probably the hardest laughs I've ever had have

    been during inappropriate moments! Just the fact that you know you can't laugh and then you and your friend are trying so hard not to laugh just makes it even funnier!

    A Night In The Tent

    Okei, so it was one day when my cousin and me were supposed to sleep in a tent in my garden. We had been sitting inside the tent and just playing cards and talking for a while. But then, suddenly, we saw a light from a flashlight towards the tent. And a dark male voice was saying...

    When I Am Tired I Start Laughing.

    OK if it is late and past the time I usually go to bed, sometimes I get some shopping done. As I am standing in the check out line, there are times when I will look around. Then I start laughing. Not hard and loud. Just a belly giggle. I might try to stop it, so my nose will...

    I Don't Always Think Before I Act.

    I have been known to laugh when people fall.  When someone is telling a sad story, and everyone else in the room is welling up with tears, there is this little demon in me that wants to laugh.  I have to supress it and pretty much go into shutdown mode so that I don't...

    Death

    I have a very inappropriate response, to death, I giggle, I just giggle.  I crack up and can't stop, it gets worse when people start to notice whats happening.  I've been to way to many funerals already, more than weddings, which I think is quite morbid.  The first time it...

    Slipping Her The Look
