wordful wednesday - i laugh when people fall down

i have a physical defect. i laugh when people fall down. or when they get hurt.

not because i LIKE seeing people get it. it's just a physical reaction. i can't help it.

and now it seems i have passed this 'affliction' onto my family.

example: an after-dinner/sunset game of volleyball at camping last week.

tara serves, and instead of punting the ball OVER the net, she accidentally (truly) bounces it off the back of her husband's head (ala freaky friday, except that was totally on purpose!)

this is my husband and first born falling to their knees in hysterical laughter, and this is me being rendered completely useless as i try to catch my breath while laughing hysterically.
you will also note tara's hubs rubbing his chin in bemusement at my family's inability to stand while laughing.

Laughteritis Nervousa it affects families of silly people all over the world, there is no known cure and most families are advised to just join in and get over it ...

That's too funny. I laugh from nervousness like when my kids got their immunizations. That's not even funny but I couldn't help it.
