I stood and watched as my kitchen crumbled and fell apart the other night. I had mentioned a certain website to our friends who were in town visiting, and everything just went downhill from there.
As soon as I said, “I was laughing so hard that [our 5yo] asked me if I was alright” they pulled up the site.
And then they started reading.
And it’s just about the coolest darn thing ever, to see people fall apart like that.
Have you ever really watched someone start to laugh?
Everything changes. Their body language, their eyes, their skin, where they are in space in relation to you. They start to touch more, clap, cry; their eyes light up and they might even drool a little (I would NOT know this from experience). They move closer together.
And then they eat cupcakes.
The third batch of cupcakes that you’ve made, because they got really super hungry from all of that laughing.
