Stuff that is not funny becomes funny when tired. So unless you are tired or otherwise impaired while reading this, it is likely that this could be a very unfunny post. While away from home, my sleep has been variable with a few late nights thrown in.
One night as I was going to bed after a family BBQ I recalled this exchange between two cousins.
J has a plate full of meat.
H – Would you like some rice or salad?
J – No thanks, I’m cleansing my body.
H – With meat?
J – No, I’m cleansing my body of carbs.
At the time I may have laughed, but as I was lying down to go to bed I just cracked up. Casey was already in bed half asleep when suddenly the sofa bed started to shake. I had a bad case of the giggles and I was trying hard not to make any noise. All I could say was, “It’s not funny. ” More giggles and then I was just barely able to repeat the dialogue that had come to mind amid giggles and silent laughter. After a few minutes I calmed down. I thought of it again in the morning and had the giggles again. A few days later I tried to tell someone about it and could not get the words out without erupting into another fit of giggles. I know, it’s not funny.
Two more potentially unfunny things met with unusually hearty laughter, but this time led by my mom. Here are two riddles told by my daughter.
Maybe you smiled, groaned or thought, “I guess you had to be there.”
