Thanks, Mel and Ray!



Last night we went with our "Coastal Peeps" to see a great show at Northrop Auditorium: Louie Anderson with Mary Mack. It was great fun. I haven't laughed like that in a really long, long, long time. The thing about this kind of laughter--you know, when you can't keep your shoulders from shaking (if you are a silent laugher like me and my old neighbor girl) until a sound finally erupts in joyful gasps and belly laughs--it made me feel so beautiful. Every part of your body responds to that kind of wonderful humor. It came bubbling into my consciousness that the knee slapping, shoulder shaking, head tossing, arm flailing laughter shook the self image right out of me, and I felt like a true prize. Sitting between my husband and my dear friend, surrounded by love, in a room of positive endorphins, I was not concerned about my legs touching the person next to me, or elbow room, or my cleave spilling out. Nope. Just joyful little me feeling the love. So thank you Melanie and Ray, for a wonderful night out. (sorry we had to cut our dinner short for the screaming Suvi-girl. she just needed a cuddle from her ma and dad--and her blanky.)

Sounds like fun Jenny! I have a fitting flair on my facebook for the descriptive laugh you were talking about that Sue sent me, but I can't remember the exact words, but it is opposite of "lol". I love to know you had that kind of night out with friends! Something to remember for a long time.

Oh, that sounds like fun! It reminds me of a time when I went to a comedy show with two of my girlfriends and we were seated at a table set right up to a brick wall- I hit my head over and over from throwing my head back with laughter! :D

I can see you silent laughing :) I'm glad you got to get out and have some fun.

I want that purse, by the way....

Oh fun! Who doesn't love Louie Anderson, first of all!? I'm glad you got to exercise those laughter muscles! Good for the soul!
