Sometimes I have to remind myself to smile.
I think I'm generally kind of a serious person and I'm not good at witty repartee (except inadvertently!). When I'm not smiling, apparently, I can look a little angry (yikes!). When I took my senior pictures in high school, the photographer asked me for a "serious" look. I told him it wasn't great for me, but he insisted, so I did. "Don't ever do that again," he said. So I remind myself to smile, or at least to mini-smile, so I look friendly!
But I love a good laugh. Any kind, really, and there are lots of things that crack me up. But I was thinking today about the really big kind where your stomach hurts, your eyes are watering and your cheeks feel like they might crack from stretching. And wondering how often I have those kinds of laughs. And I think it's not as often as it should be, since right off the top of my head, I can only think of three specific times, where I had that kind of laugh (although I'm sure there are others, right?).
But I know that probably reading this, you're thinking to yourself, "Hmmm...I'm not totally seeing this." Which I get, since I know I've laughed politely when someone was telling me something they found so hilarious.
I guess we all have our own laughter triggers. I want to make sure that mine is ready to release more frequently!
