What makes you laugh the most?
I am generally not a person who laughs a lot. Jokes tend to fill categories that I don't find funny and it's very rare to find clean humor.
Laughter is important, it's a great way to remember you are alive and more than the pain that you can be surrounded by. I also think it is something you can choose. You can choose the type of things that make you happy and bring a smile to your face. Sometimes it's not easy to remember.
When my jewelry arrived from the Happiness Boutique, it came with a little bookmark that said
"A day without laughter is a day wasted" - Nicolas Chamfort.
And I agree with that. We should all find moments in our lives to laugh with others. My first thought when putting together a look surrounding this chokers was, going to a coffee shop and laughing the afternoon away with a friend. I don't get the chance to do that very often, but it is one of my favorite ways to reconnect with an old friend.
I'm not good at writing humor. My tone of voice is always serious and things I try to make light, generally never get taken that way. But I enjoy finding blogs that can accomplish that and The Everywhereist does that. My personal favorite being her letter to her husband, regarding the milk he left out all night.
An old memory that I like to think back on, is when a friend brought one of her friends over to met Kevin and I. He came in and the first thing he said was, "Instead of looking at this ginormous pimple on my nose, read this book" and handed me a copy of All My Friends Are Dead by Avery Moonsen and Jory John. It's a hilarious little tale of a dinosaur and it set the tone for a great night.
