I've found a way to laugh

There is someone I know (not on this site) that really gets under my skin. I was letting it get to me until I was standing there and all of a sudden I visualized this person in nothing but speedos and cowboy boots. OMG, I just about fell out laughing. I could hardly contain my laughter and no matter how hard I tried to not laugh, the greater the need to became until I thought I'd split a seam. I finally had to go in the other room until I could get my laughter under control. Now everytime I see this person, I have the same reaction and they along with everyone else must think I've completely lost my faculties. Have you ever found a way to make yourself laugh at the worst of times?

no sorry I have never found a way to do that, I wish I could though, picturing somebody in their birthday suit or speedo or whatever would not do it for me.

ohmy gosh I read your discussion and thought of a professor I really disliked back when I was in myfifties and getting my BA in English. I just now imagined him in nothing but speedoss and cowboy boots and I almost did not make it to the bathroom in time. now this reminds me of Mr. Marconi and macaroni, he was a veryobnoxious man who was the administrator of St Lukes Hospital in PHoenix. My friend always called him mr macaroni as she disliked him as much as I did and I chided her saying be careful or you'll callhim that to his face. then one day we were coming back from lunch and he was just coming out to go to lunch. He said in his unctous way hello girls and Marie pipes up and says well hello Mr Macaroni. I thought the man was going to have a fit he turned purple and huffed and hurriedoff as fast as his short legs and big belly would let him. then we both started to laugh until we were crying and every one wanted in on the joke and soon all the nurses were practically in hysterics. Then hewalked back in and boydid it get quiet around there. he disappeared into his office and closed thedoor. see what you started lol.

I can't say I have done that either but as they say laughter is pretty good therapy. I need to do more of it, especially lately. Good way to come up with something to laugh about :)

LOL, that reminds me of the story of my mum getting her drivers license. She was really nervous until a friend told her to imagine the tester sitting in the car in nothing but a pair of pink underpants with purple polka dots Mum did just that, sat there chuckling to herself the whole time... and guess what, she passed the test
