when's the last time you laughed? like, laughed laughed? with tears and a hand over your mouth and a lean into the person next to you...
i do enjoy laughing.
i laugh a lot. usually when it's an inappropriate time. i will tell you this secret about me if you swear to never repeat it to anyone, ok? ok, then. once, i went to a very crowded wake. when it was my turn to kneel in front of the casket, i completely lost my mind and started laughing. shoulders shaking, nose plugged, tears streaming. i was a mess. and then. when i went to express my condolences to the guy's family? i started all over again. it was awful. i remember getting my trying-not-to-laugh high-pitched voice...ugh...this soprano sorry sailing through the room.
this morning, i've already laughed hard once. when esmé named her giraffe baracko. after the president. baracko bama.
i'm not surprised. she butchers all the world leaders and a variety of terrorists. with one exception: this guy. oh, she knows his name. she just won't ever say it. he scares the crust out of us.
where was i? oh, yes. laughing. it's good for your soul, yes? but it's kind of like hugs, isn't it? do you ever get a hug and all of a sudden realize that it's been awhile since someone's hugged you? i mean, i hug the girlies three and pat all day all night. but sometimes i think they forget to hug me first. that's a huge difference in hugs, don't you think? a hug you give is lovely. a hug you get is even better.
anyway. when's the last time you laughed? i hope you get to laugh today. i hope you get a hug today, too. off to make more videos for this project. grae sings in the most wonderful dude-in-an-opera voice. you would peep your pants if you heard it. i'll try to persuade her to share. xoxo. photos from here and here.
