Laughter is an instant vacation. ~Milton Berle

What makes me laugh?

When someone tickels me, especially when I know it's coming.

When someone tells a good joke, fitting the situation.

When I watch a nice comedy serial, like IT Crowd do you know it?

When a child smiles, like this afternoon. A dad and his daughter are walking. The child is not older than 3 years. She suddenly says: 'Start counting, I will hide!' and she goes behind a bush and starts counting :) Her dad hides behind a wall, and the girl goes: 'I see you, I see you :)' and had a wonderful smile on her face.

When I spend a nice evening with my friends, just being silly!

Laughing, being happy, smiling brings in me an incredible warm feeling, and in the end what soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul. ~Yiddish Proverb

Keep smiling!

Especially loved the story about the father and child. Children can be so entertaining. When ours were little, Hubby and I sometimes worried we'd scar them because they made us laugh so often. Instead, they both grew up with great senses of humor.

Yes, this post made me smile as well my friend. Laughter really is so good for the soul. I loved the story about the little girl as well. Bless!

You are such a wonderfully upbeat, contented young lady, Claudia. So level headed and well balanced! I always admire the way you find joy and pleasure in the simple things of life, those wholesome moments so many young folk tend not to see, or if they do, find them boring. Never change this about yourself, OK?

Great post :) thanks for the memories I havent seen the IT Crowd in years.

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
