The sound of laughter

Today is Thursday which means that I don’t have to write a real post and instead can just post something old for Throwback Thursday.  YAY FOR BEING LAZY.

This is Hailey when she was four, attempting to explain what she saw at the planetarium. It makes no sense and I don’t recommend the whole thing, but from 17 seconds to the one minute mark is the sound of the ridiculously contagious laughter that only comes when you’re very young or very drunk.  (She’s the first.)  I hope it makes you smile because if it doesn’t you might be missing a soul.  Or maybe you just need to watch some cat videos.  Or videos of people falling.  Whatever does it for you.

  6. Laughter really is contagious. I was once in a play where another person and I were supposed to break into spontaneous laughter at a third person who walked onstage wearing a ridiculous outfit. It really was a funny outfit, but after seeing it many times, not so much. HOWEVER (there really is a point here), the “pretend” laughter always turned to the real thing very quickly, just by starting. (We’re talking rolling around on the stage crying and holding on to each other laughter.)

    Hmm…maybe I should remember that more often.

    One time.. when I was very young (maybe 8?) I was at church with my Dad, Stepmother and two Step sisters. We were on vacation so it was not the church we normally went to. It was a “small town” church. There might have been 30 people there.. well, to make a long story short – I got the giggles during the sermon. Not the good giggles.. the BAD giggles. And my bad giggles begat more giggles which begat more giggles which spawned purely evil giggles. My stepsister to my immediate right caught them and it turned into 10 minutes of crying and snorting that could not be stopped. It was so horrifyingly awesome that I remember every detail of it to this day nearly 40 years later.. especially the part where my father was staring daggers at me trying to get me to stop.

    imagine my surprise when i read the small note at home this was a comment given to ann landers
    It seems that when the good Lord was making the world, he called Man aside and bestowed upon him 20 years of normal sex life. Man was horrified, but the Creator refused to budge. Then the Lord called the monkey and gave him 20 years. “But I don’t need 20 years,” said the monkey. “Ten years is plenty.” Man spoke up and said: “May I have the other 10 years?” The monkey agreed. The Lord called on the lion and also gave him 20 years. The lion, too, wanted only 10. Again Man spoke up. “May I have the other 10 years?” “Of course.” said the lion. (hang on, getting there) Then came the donkey who was also given 20 years. Like the others 10 years was enough. So again Man asked and was given the spare years.
    punch line:
    This explains why Man has 20 years of normal sex, 10 years of monkeying around, 10 years of lion about it and 10 years of making a jackass out of himself

    When ever I hear a child laugh, I am reminded of when I heard my son laugh for the first time. We were riding in the car and it was raining lightly. There was enough water to need the windshield wipers, but not enough rain at the same time. The wipers would squeak on the second swipe across the windshield, which was apparently hilarious, causing my 5 or 6 month old son to giggle ecstatically. My mother was in the car with us, and we all just started laughing so hard I had to pull over to the side and stop driving. I couldn’t breathe I was laughing so hard. That was over 30 years ago. I’ll never forget it. I know the exact spot on the road where we were, too.

    My daughter toots when she laughs that hard, and then it makes her laugh harder. And then it makes ME laugh….and since having 2 kids when I laugh that hard, I pee. So we’re both laughing uncontrollably, she’s tooting and I’m peeing. Good times.

  139. My three-year-old and I just watched this video. Your daughter seemed to make perfect sense to him because he started laughing and commenting on her story. Must be kid language.

    My 3.5 year old daughter just watched this with me and her only comment was “Cows aren’t made of ice, they’re made of cowboys! Duh!” Behold my amazing parenting skills!

  144. I don’t know what was funnier, the video or watching the faces of my dog and cat who were both next to the laptop the whole time. The dog’s head practically came off she’d cocked it to the side so far and my (mostly-recovered-from-feral) kitty was bristling and bobbing up and down trying desperately to find the obviously crazed thing about to attack her. But she didn’t bolt, so some of Hailey’s magical happiness obviously soothed her enough to prevent a total nuclear, feral freakout! :)

  148. I think the real question is… why wouldn’t there be a cow made of ice on Saturn.

    BTW, her laugh is so great. Thanks. I needed a smile.

  152. One of the things I loved most about my daughter’s visit from college this past December, was listening to her brother and her laugh together over something stupid on TV. it went on for minutes and it was the best sound ever. It really is contagious and wonderful.
