My husband’s corny jokes
He’s a master at making me laugh with private jokes that only he and I can understand.
John Inman is a MM Romance author that has written two of the funniest books I’ve ever read: Shy and Loving Hector. One of them almost made me choke to death on toothpaste (brought my e-reader to the bathroom when I brushed my teeth, shouldn’t have done that) and I tried to read the other next to my sleeping husband. You know how it is when you’re not allowed to laugh? How the laughter explodes out of you, louder than ever? And how if you laugh in a bed, the entire bed sort of bobs? Those two things combined woke up my husband, who gave me the evil eye and suggested I take my book out to the couch 🙂

I laughed so hard I almost fell out of the couch, and after this episode I watched the entire series from the start. I still laugh every time I see it. Here’s a summary:

The first chapter of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. It’s hilarious, but this is my favorite part.
Tell me about something that makes you laugh! 🙂
