H is for Hilarity

April 10, 2017

Despite all the crap I'm dealing with right now, I'm wise enough to notice when things are getting better. I am laughing more now than I have in a very, very, long time. And I'm laughing at the silliest things.


I was in the shower and grabbed the bottle of conditioner with my right hand. I squirted a little into my left and then turned to put the bottle back into the shower caddy. When I looked back to my palm, the conditioner was gone. I did that thing where I lower my right eyebrow and raise the left in question. Shrugging, I grabbed the conditioner again and repeated all the steps. Again, when I looked down, my hand was empty except for a small smear of the milky white substance in my palm.


Silly to do in the shower, I know, but I looked around to make sure I was alone. For the third time, I squeezed some conditioner into my hand. Not taking my eyes off it, I tried to get the bottle back into the shower caddy without looking. As I did so, my left hand automatically tilted down as a balancing effort and I almost lost the dollop.


As realization washed over me (along with the hot water spray), I began to giggle. And then to full blown laugh. Such a stupid thing to happen and my brain not even recognize what I was doing. I couldn't help it, but I laughed so hard I snorted. Snorted water right up my nose. Which then made me laugh even harder.


It was a good thing my son wasn't home. Off visiting his grandparents, I had just finished cleaning the house for my impending writer's marketing meeting and thus needed a shower. Had he heard me cackling away in the bathroom, I'm sure he would have thought I was nuts. Maybe I was. Maybe I am. But when I finally climbed out to towel off, I felt so much better.


So now I'm looking for the hilarity in situations where I might not have seen it before, anxious for the next giggling fit to take me over. I absolutely cannot wait!
