I’m For Laughter
“I’m for laughter, happily ever after, don’t matter who, don’t matter what: when and where do not matter, I’m for laughter. I’m for laughter loud enough to make people turn their heads and think “I should be over there,” while others think, “what assholes!” I’m for laughter at the wrong time: at funerals, board meetings, during sex, flat-tires, hurricanes and shipwrecks.
I’m for laughter stopping us from falling off the last step into solemn oblivion. I’m for laughter as the recognition of the joke that life can sometimes be. I’m for laughter from the heart, laughter that lifts one’s spirit so high everything looks funny and you can’t get “serious” about life anymore because you get the joke.
I’m for the giddy laughter coming from the small feet people who pitter-patter. I’m for laughter when the money’s in the red and losings all the chatter. I’m for laughter for no reason at all or just because it feels good, a good hearty laugh like a good laugh should. I’m for laughter with friends who make you crack up no matter what they say.
I’m for laughter is the best medicine and you got to take it everyday like a painkiller. Only it doesn’t just dull the pain, it makes the pain go away: so long pain you lose to laughter. Uncontrollable, cheek hurting, spit spewing, pee inducing, stomach pain bringing, thank you for making me laugh like a jackass, I don’t need nothing cause I got you laughter. Laughter is what I’m after, I’m for laughter……”©Excerpt from “The Almost True Tales, Thoughts & Observations of a Life Long Black Sheep Rebel Girl”
