I believe in laughter! The type you just can’t hold back. The type of laughter that makes you burst out in tears for no reason at all. The type you lose you breathe to. The type that makes your face go completely numb. The feeling that your stomach is going to explode at any moment! I relish the joy laughing brings to everyone and the silent pause after everyone stops laughing, that makes you start laughing again. I use laughter on many occasions; when I baby sit, when someone is sad, or just to brighten up a moment in time. My friends enjoy the way I can always make them smile. They know, when they are having a bad day, I’m the one to help make it better. Laughter is an obsession to me. It’s my joy of life. Without it, the world would be a boring place.
