Day 16: LOL

entire series here
I love to laugh
Loud and long and clear
I love to laugh
It's getting worse every year

The more I laugh, the more I fill with glee
And the more the glee
The more I'm a merrier me, it's embarrassing
The more I'm a merrier me

Some people laugh through their noses
Sounding something like this, dreadful
Some people laugh through their teeth goodness sake
Hissing and fizzing like snakes
Not at all attractive to my way of thinking

Some laugh too fast
Some only blast
Others, they twitter like birds
You know you're as bad as he is

Then there's the kind
What can't make up their mind

When things strike me as funny
I can't hide it inside
And squeak as the squeakelers do
I've got to let go with a ho ho ho
And a ha ha ha too

We love to laugh
Loud and long and clear
We love to laugh
So everybody can hear

The more you laugh
The more you fill with glee
And the more the glee
The more we're a merrier we
-Mary Poppins, We Love to Laugh

Well, at 16 days into this thing, I have an easy challenge for you today...Laugh out loud. 

A merry heart does good like a medicine...(Proverbs 17:22)

I have a few humorous suggestions to get your funny bone tickled....

-Watch an I Love Lucy episode. I think the funniest are Cousin Ernie Comes to Visit (Season 2) and Flying Back from Europe (Season 4). Both of those are guaranteed to make you laugh. Out loud.

-Peruse the Reader's Digest jokes. There are multiple funny sections in each magazine. Find a good joke that makes you laugh, and then share it with someone else.

-Have your kids read Calvin and Hobbes to you. My boys have 2 collections of the comics. I love hearing them laugh. It makes me laugh.

-Read a funny book. The last book that made me bust a gut was Auntie Mame: An Irreverent Escapade. I was laughing and laughing.

-You can also watch these hilarious clips....

Remember, the key is to laugh out loud. Loud and long and clear. So everybody can hear.=)
