My husband and I were filling out health assessments last week because we would receive some extra health benefits through his company's insurance plan by completing them. One of the questions asked referred to laughter, something about did you laugh today, or how many times did you laugh in the last week. I'm happy to report I could say I laugh everyday, normally several times a day.
Here's a brief list of how I fill my humor tank:
- BBC comedy is my not-so-secret addiction. I don't know if it is how they say things in the UK, or the scenarios concocted, but I find them much funnier than U.S. comedy programs.
- My husband and sons are funny people, if you find puns funny, that is (sometimes I do, sometimes I don't). But it's nice to live with creative men who possess a great sense of humor. They help fill my daily laughter quota.
- I've written about humor blogs before, but this one deserves another mention, Chatty Crone. One Friday she wrote something like "It's Friday, time to do your happy Friday booty dance." I burst out laughing. It was so ridiculous, how could I not laugh?
As I wrap up today, let me share something I'm still laughing about days later. Last week my son woke up and said he'd had the strangest dream. He dreamt he was a fertilizer delivery man who used a motor scooter to make his deliveries. Can't you just picture it? My manly, bearded son riding a tiny little motor bike with bags on fertilizer balanced on the back. The only element that could have made this funnier was if he'd been wearing a tutu.
So, this is what makes me laugh. What do you find funny?
