**Write about laughing at an inappropriate time**
Laughing is soooo closely related to crying for me.
Yeah, I've laughed during lots of inappropriate times. Mostly as a kid in church with my sister, and then again as an adult with my future husband (it was SO wrong). But now? That easy laughter is the BEST thing about our marriage!
You see, I have to the tendency to see the absurdity in things. And then I get started, and cannot stop.
But the WORST possible place I could have laughed was at my mother's funeral, about ten years ago. It was so insane, but I couldn't stop myself. I was so completely stressed out ( I was moving to NYC right after) and out of my mind! It makes me sick to my stomach just thinking about it.
You see, my sister was right next to me balling her eyes out, and I had not reached that point just yet (my time would come later, all alone in NYC). Somehow, it just happened. I looked at her and LOST IT.
I laughed hysterically. I put my head down and pretended to be crying. I'm pretty sure everyone bought it, b/c my heavy laughter eventually turned into some tears.
But it wasn't until years later that I was able to admit it to my sister. For the record? She had no idea!
HOW ABOUT YOU?
