Every one enjoys a good laugh every now and then. It is important to our well being, but consider the types of laughing one does.
There is a simple smile and a “humph” of comedic acknowledgement. Then there is a quick giggle that can move on to an actual laugh that can go on for a few seconds.
By far the coolest laugh is the uncontrollable laugh. This is a laughing session that can last for minutes and then subside but start up again at the drop of a hat for another few more minutes. It often almost sounds like crying because the vocal chord portion seems to shut down yet allowing a breathy/ squeaky sound to emit from the throat; kind of like a squeaky toy.
This type of laughter is rare. I think I’ve only experienced it maybe four times in my life. It’s odd, because I can speak the words that got me going, but they aren’t quite so funny now. At the time they had me on the floor in uncontrollable laughter.
I hope to experience this type of laughter at least once more before my life is over, but I hope it doesn’t happen in public because this type of laughter can mimic being drunk or stoned. I wouldn’t want that to be thought of me unless I actually was, which I never am.
