The other day, I took my husband (and kids) to a really nice restaurant to celebrate his birthday. It was one of those places with the lights down low, fancy tablecloths, and candles on the table. A place where one should behave in a civilized manner.
Apparently, my son didn't get the memo on that last part. He was overtired, and in a completely silly mood. The boy started laughing. Not just any old laugh - a fully belly laugh. Soon, he was laughing so hard, he was crying. I looked at my husband. He looked at me. Then he looked back at my son. Big mistake. The man had caught the laughing bug. Soon, he was crying, just like Bubba.
I looked at my daughter. She looked at me. Then I made the mistake of looking at my husband. I bet you can't guess what happened next. Yes. I started laughing, too. Soon, tears were rolling out of my eyeballs. I could barely breath.
I bet you're wondering if my daughter resisted the laughing bug. No. She caught it just after me. Soon all four of us were laughing uncontrollably.
This silliness lasted at least five minutes.
When it finally stopped, I looked over at Bubba. "Dude, what were we laughing about?"
He shrugged. "I don't know!"
Was anyone else laughing with you?ReplyDelete
No, it was just us.Delete
Good thing, laughter. How was the grub? What did the adults eat?ReplyDelete
The grub was awesome. It was a steakhouse, so the kids and I had filet mignons with asparagus and hollandaise sauce and fully loaded baked potatoes. My husband had a 16 oz. strip steak. Not cheap, but certainly delicious!Delete
What did you have?Delete
Good to hear it was a yummy meal. Steakhouses usually get it right.
We do laugh occasionally for no reason. It is better than fighting or making fun of others.ReplyDelete
Yes. They say laughter is the best medicine.Delete
Laughter is good for the heart and soul......and healthy.ReplyDelete
Pleased you all enjoyed yourselves.
It was certainly a memorable meal!Delete
Still tried to get to your blog. It says "profile not available." Try making it public.Delete
Sherry, I have been there, one time I was in class (an adult class) and I started to laugh, I had to leave and go to the other end of the building to control myself... I know it was over something ridiculous and really wasn't that funny... but I did have a good laugh ... so did the girl who got me started... we didn't look at each other for the rest of the class xoxReplyDelete
It feels good to have a hearty laugh!Delete
Good for him to bring a little levity to such a serious place.ReplyDelete
Haha! Yes, always a little levity wherever Bubba goes!Delete
That is adorable. Laughter is like a yawn. You can't help but do it when you see someone else doing it.ReplyDelete
You just made me yawn. :)Delete
lol who needs to be serious in such a placeReplyDelete
Certainly not us!Delete
Sometimes the laughs just come. Better than crying for no reason...ReplyDelete
Yes. Although I've been known to do the latter. Hormone malfunctions! :)Delete
Laughing is good for whatever reason you can come up with; I wish we could put it in an aerosol.ReplyDelete
That would be a huge money-maker!Delete
*hee* Nothing wrong with some literal LOLs every now and then... ;)ReplyDelete
Bubba has quite a few LOLs!Delete
Well, they say laughter is good for the body and soul. Sounds like you all had a good dose. :) Thanks for stopping by my blog for Alex's post. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
We certainly had a good dose. Hope you have a great weekend, too!Delete
That happened to me the other day. I've gone days without sleeping before and it would cause hysterical moments for no reason.ReplyDelete
Believe me, I've had my share of hysterical silliness due to sleep deprivation!Delete
I love infectious laughter. It always feels good to share it with others.ReplyDelete
It certainly does!Delete
That's the best kind of laughter.ReplyDelete
You livened the place upReplyDelete
We certainly did!Delete
Hilarious! What a fun way to celebrate.ReplyDelete
It was a memorable meal!Delete
Laughing is good for you so all of you will be enjoying exceptionally good health for a long time!ReplyDelete
