When is the last time you had a good laugh?
I remember laughing til my side hurt a few weeks ago. Something out of the ordinary happened at home and CandyMan and I lost it. The kids stared at us while we rolled on the floor, got red in the face, and had tears streaming down our cheeks. I’ve thought and thought about what made us laugh and I can’t recall what triggered it. It doesn’t really matter (and I’m sure it wasn’t that funny).
Just a few minutes ago, I dropped a raisin down the front of my shirt. I laughed. That simple laughter was what I needed to break through a painful writer’s block. I had been sitting in front of my computer (and snacking), trying to write a post for MamaKat’s writer’s workshop. And I was failing. Today, laughter was the best medicine.
