Laughter is the best medicine?

I laugh a lot. And by ‘a lot’ I mean ‘whenever something is remotely funny I shall laugh unnecessarily longer than anyone else’.

This is something that I cannot help. If something little happens that might be strange or unexpected, I will laugh along with everything else. But the thing with me is that I continue laughing after everyone else has already stopped. And when I think about it more, it becomes even funnier and I’m literally bursting with laughter.

I’m pretty sure most people think I’m crazy or weird when I laugh. My eyes stream tears and I can’t breathe. But when I watch other people, they don’t seem to be having a hard time of it like I do. Like, I literally cannot control myself.

An example of the last time that this happened to me was, in fact, today. I was sorting something out with a colleague on the computer and it was taking a long time – you know how computers are sometimes. Every time it didn’t work the way we’d hope I would laugh. The hours went on and I got crazier – probably more delusional – and I couldn’t stop laughing at anything funny that happened or something witty someone said. I had to sit there with my lips pressed together for fear of completely losing it.

They say that laughter is the best medicine, and if that’s true then I must be super healthy because I do enough laughing for everyone
