I live to laugh. Do you? Laughter seems to be one of my basic needs.
Good thing humor is all around us. I’m one of those people who view our world through a comic lens, for the most part. I suspect it’s one of my coping mechanisms. I’d rather laugh than cry. Laughing so hard that I cry, oh man, those are the best of times!
The sound of other people’s laughter is music to me, and I find the many ways people laugh entertaining and amusing.

I find it extremely embarrassing when I’m hooting and a snort escapes. Are any of you snorters, too?
Do we have any bounce-in-the-chair-and-bang-your-head-on-the-table types?
How about when you’re standing up and chuckle so hard you have to jump up and down like a goofball?
Ever cracked up so bad you fell on the floor and rolled around, roaring with hysterics?
I’m guilty of all the above. Although I try to control myself out in public, sometimes it’s hard.
Baby laughter is, by far, the sweetest laughter in the world. Here’s a clip of my grandson:
What type of laugher are you?
