I laugh when I'm put into awkward situations or in situations where I don't know what to say. When my dad was drunk, he found out that is aunt died. When he told me, I almost laughed because I was so uncomfortable. I never met her and I didn't know her and I didn't really think itnwas FUNNY that she died, I was just really nervous and uncomfortable. Usually when things like that happen, I try to come up with things to say in order to distract myself. Sometimes, it doesn't work.
