Share Some Laughter – Part 3
Laughing at yourself and laughing about your circumstances is great, but if you really want a good laugh together, you can start laughing about your past. This is a great cure for those melancholy moments or those days where you’re wife is in an emotional slump.
All of us accumulate humorous things that have happened to us throughout our lives. The old cliché “more fun than a barrel of monkeys” must have first been penned to talk about humans. I mean, if there is anything that is funnier than monkeys, it’s the two legged creatures around us.
Even things that didn’t seem funny at the moment can seem hilarious in retrospect. Events that really put us through our paces suddenly become great stories that get us rockin’ and rollin’ with laughter after the fact. We can look back at ourselves and ask one of life’s great questions, “Why did I do that?” Or, act with shock at ourselves and say, “I can’t believe I did that!”
As I said, this is a great way to overcome those days when she’s feeling a little bit down. It doesn’t matter why she’s down, she might not even know. What matters is that you get her back up again. Well, here’s one way to do it. Find something funny from your past together and share it with her. Have a good laugh together… and if one isn’t enough, I’m sure you’ve got more funny stories to pull from.
