Laugh, monkey girl, laugh!!

When was the last time you laughed really hard? I did just last week, when my husband left his FTO beside the road in the dark after the guy fell into a ditch. Sweet!
The cartoon above is there because of another time when I laughed really hard.
My Dad had just had mouth surgery ( wisdom teeth at 60-something) and my Mom and I were driving home talking about the road we were on, and weather, and other interesting stuff. My Pops was in the back bench seat of the mini van, and we thought he was out, because he was very "out" if you know what I mean. All of a sudden he throws himself ( drapes his arms on the back of the seat in front of him) on the seat in front of him and says in a strange creepy story teller voice.." It was a dark and stormy night, and I was driving home from work on highway 50..." Mom and I just looked at each other and at him and busted up laughing!!! He was like.. what? He just wanted to share a road/weather story with us. He was really, really feeling good. I had never seen my Dad that silly before, but let me tell you, It was great!!
So, when was the last time you had to just laugh? Not the polite snicker snicker reserved for tv shows, but the real tear running down your face laughing? I would like to have you tell me about it.

You mean besides the story about the guy falling in the ditch? And besides the dark and storm night story? And besides your cat's head hanging over the cabinet? Will have to think about it a little bit. Some things are so hard to describe for others to get the picture in their head, like the thing with your Pops. That was too hysterical.

What is a FTO and why is that funny?

I laughed REALLY hard at a story Robbie told the other day. That was the most I've laughed in a while.

I would have to say that I laugh really hard pretty often. I tend to find many things funny. Appropriate and not so appropriate things.

Not enough lately, but I laugh most when I'm with friends being silly. I've been so busy lately that I haven't had any good friend time.

Now I'm feeling horrible - I can't even talk. Someone said something funny in my house a while ago and I laughed, but nothing came out. My daughter said ahhh she can't even laugh.

I do small laughing, but I rarely laugh really hard. But I like to.
