Without a doubt life throws all of us curveballs. We wake up expecting to do this wonderful thing and Murphy’s Law intrudes and it all goes wrong. Occasionally we expect the reverse and it all goes right–but we tend to forget those moments.
How wonderful it is to be able to laugh and get through everything with the right partner. My Queen and I laugh a lot together. We will occasionally have these giggle fits where we are really unable to stop. It’s marvellous and so good for us.
Laughter is healing. It is a bonding experience. A few years ago a visionary leader at my work had a meeting where she brought in someone to run a laughter “clinic” or “workshop”. I had never heard of such a thing so went into this full of scepticism.
Once inside, the leader took a few minutes to discuss the “facts of laughter” and what he mentioned hit home. He spoke about how some victims of cancers and other diseases used laughter to combat their conditions. He regaled us with success stories of people doing just that before speaking about other facts of laughter. Then he asked us to laugh! Just fake it and do a belly laugh he asked. There were about 70 of us in this room. Some I only knew barely but the idea of forcing a fake laugh didn’t appeal to me much. Still in the spirit of cooperation I and many others started to do just that. It didn’t stay fake for long. When you see multiple colleagues doing a fake laugh, it is funny and so my laugh turned real. Some of the pure observers started to laugh too. An soon nearly everyone was really laughing at nothing actually. It was marvellous!! I left that meeting with a new appreciation of laughter. And I left feeling much better about my day!
Now my Queen and I have always laughed a lot when we are together. Somehow I seem to tickle her funnybone in a way that sets her off. I sometimes aim to do it but occasionally it is just a lucky thing! And when we get laughing together there doesn’t seem to be anything in the world that can get in our way. Stresses melt away. Pressure seems to evaporate. Love is more fun and feels so much better! After all, we are totally in tune with each other in a way that is only pleasurable.
So I encourage you to laugh with your spouse or partner!

It’s been some time since I discussed where I am these days with respect to orgasms!
As of this morning, it is 465 days since my last orgasm and 274 days until I’m likely to have one.
My punishment number has been rising though because my Queen hasn’t decided to deal with things in some while.

Laughter by Bruce Cockburn. This is a great song by a Canadian performer that is all about laughter. Worth a listen!
