Laughter can lead us to connection

Laughter can lead us to connection

I’m funny. At least, I think I am. I remember being funny when I was a kid. My older sister and I used to lie down in the hallway in our house when we were young (and bored) and I could make her laugh until she was crying without even tickling her. We were gifted a tape recorder once when we were young, which resulted in an entire afternoon of howling laughter. I remember that we recorded ourselves telling each other knock-knock jokes. One of the jokes went like this:

            Knock knock.
            Who’s there?

            Burton.

            Burton who?

            Burton up your overcoat!
