One’s own ability to laugh at ‘self’,
is to unload the pent-up emotional shelf.
A contagious laughter that draws others near,
who just want to be closer, to the chuckling they hear.
That which is yours, and yours alone.
Lurking deep within your funny bone.
tickling the corners of a mouth demure.
Teasing the laugh lines, a perfect lure.
It can no longer be held, not one minute more,
your inner humor threatening to pour.
With much fervor, laughter comes bursting through,
with everyone suddenly looking at you.
“What’s so funny?” They ask without saying,
You try and answer without further delaying.
But the laughter’s too strong, you can’t respond back.
You’re fully accountable for this laughing attack.
Laughter of ‘self’ is a beautiful thing,
many moments of joy, it is sure to bring!

Very true Sylvia. When young I couldn’t do it, now I don’t mind it at all. Have a great day!!!
Good morning Levi. Some of my best laughs have been on my dime…an inexpensive price to pay for the joy that self-laughter can bring. As time goes by, the more comfortable I am with it! Sending good vibes your way for an awesome day!
Great morning to you, my girl! I understand what you mean all the way. Now I’m “trying” to catch up after last week. Lots to do as I leave in about 3 weeks for 17 days. Have a good one 🙂
Thank you Levi! If only I could be a little bird that somehow found its way into your luggage.:) How nice to travel and see so much of the world! By the way, I’m still hoping to hear about last week and see some pics….hmmm…a post maybe? When you have the time of course. If you write, I will read….
Dear girl, I posted Monday and today is about the wedding. Both have photos.
Oh my goodness! Sorry Levi…I must be slipping. I get so many emails…will have to manage them better. I will check them out.
No problem. I understand!!
Thank you. 🙂
