    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...

    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...

    Slipping Her The Look

    There we would go arm in arm down the corridor towards the assembly hall. Chatting and giggling as we went and winding up our friends in front. We would walk silently into the hall taking our seats in rows but we would always end up not sitting next to each other but would always...

    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...

    Yes. Yes I do. It's really embarrassing

    and I feel bad sometimes for doing it. I can't even hold a straight face, when I know I'm gonna laugh, I bite my finger or put my hands over my mouth and sometimes bite my long sleeve shirt to keep me from laughing. I guess I'm just those type of people that love to laugh all...

    I'm Not Right In The Head.

    Have you ever seen the movie, "View From The Top?" It's with Gwyneth Paltrow, Christina Applegate and Mike Myers...  Ok...  there's a scene in the movie where Christina Applegate's character is supposed to say "assess" as in, "evaluate."  Instead, she screams "*****," as in...

    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...

    Aw man, and then I feel like

    such a bad person afterwards. Then I think about the person who bestowed this humor upon me, and I laugh harder. Back in high school I used to carpool with my cousin and Aunt. One day as we're turning a corner on our way to school the crossing guard stops us to let some...

    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!

    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...

    Your Lion Eyes

    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...

    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...
