June 14, 2014: When the Printed Word Makes You Laugh

I don’t know how often I have laughed out loud while reading something.  In recent times, I know I laughed out loud reading Whip it by Shauna Cross.  I don’t remember the line, but I was on the bus and I chortled pretty loudly.  Either no one heard me, or everyone decided to leave me alone–probably some fear was involved.  I know that I laugh out loud when I read Bill Bryson.  The guy is just that humorous.

Today, I laughed out loud while reading something on the computer.  I don’t remember the last time, if ever, that happened.  I get lots of jokes but since most of them are photos, they don’t really count.  In this case I laughed out loud and it felt good.

I commented on another WordPress blogger’s posting (My OBT–check it out, it is really good), and her response made me chuckle audibly, quite without warning.  I am happy I wasn’t drinking milk or coke at the time.  That would have been messy.

Either way, laughing is wonderful.  For that reason, that moment has won the honour of being called Today’s Perfect Moment.
