You know those moments when you can’t, for the life of you, stop laughing? Like, you’re laughing so hard that you’re crying? Nearly peeing your pants? Clutching your gut, and gasping for air? I LOVE THOSE MOMENTS. They are really my favorite…Especially when there’s the absolute worst, most inappropriate timing to boot.
I remember this one time, so so so clearly: It was 9th grade Spanish class, and my friend Samantha could NOT stop laughing. We were about to take a pretty big test, and she just turned around, looked at me with her watery (from laughing) eyes, and I lost it too. I don’t know why! Nothing was even funny about it! Her laughter was just so infectious. And it was completely the wrong time to be laughing, but I couldn’t help myself. After a minute of everyone questioning the source of this mysterious laughter, my teacher started to join in. Then followed the rest of the class. It was awesome!
Because that’s one of those ‘you had to be there’ moments, I’ll share with you something a bit more accessible. Starring none other than Kristen Wiig and Jon Hamm– you will cry, or at least snort. They play jazz singers, who are also a bickering couple, and it’s amazing. (I find that the lyrics to their songs get super easily stuck in my head.)
