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.
Q-What's green and has wheels?
A-Grass, I was just kidding about the wheels.
Q-What's blue and smells like red paint?
A- Blue paint.
Maybe you smiled, groaned or thought, "I guess you had to be there."
