People around me make me laugh. All the time. Often when I least expect it, but most need it. Here are a few of my favorite exchanges lately:
Setting: band rehearsal. Learning a new song.
Bass player: I don’t have the chords to that song. (to worship leader/acoustic player) Can I look over your shoulder?
Acoustic player: My shoulder doesn’t have the right chords.
Drummer: Stupid shoulder.
Setting: staff meeting
staff member 1: I haven’t seen [person x] at church for a while.
staff member 2: well, he is a fairly quiet guy.
staff member 1: but he’s.. visible, right?
Setting: car pool, which includes our neighbor kindergarten girl
girl: my feeling hurts.
me: your feeling? your one feeling hurts?
girl: yes. (pause) my third one.
Setting: dinner time at home
background: son’s kindergarten class uses a green/yellow/red card system to reward and encourage good behavior. After a student has a certain number of ‘green card’ days, he or she gets to pick something out of a ‘treasure chest’.
son: mom, I just barely missed the treasure chest today.
me: (suspicious) why’s that?
me: did you get a yellow card?
son: (grins) yep.
son: because I did this down the hall (collapses and log rolls across the floor)
me: you rolled on the floor?!!?
son: (giggling… proud) yep.
me: which teacher gave you the card?
me: Mrs. B___?
son: yep. man, she’s strict.
Who makes you laugh in your everyday life?
