    Yes They Do.

    It took me about 8 years but I'm a lot happier now that I can and do quite frequently. I think it's good to be able to accept your inner silliness.

    I Do It Often!

    I encountered life's most embarrassing moment a few days ago and I've been laughing about it ever since.  You have to laugh at those things you can't do anything about.
