04/03/2008: "My Belly is Still Laughing"
Today I found an old message sent by a friend of mine from grad school in Hawaii. The message was years old and sent right before she left to do field research in Palau. I thought there was probably no chance she'd be at the same address but sent off a quick email just in case.
I heard back from her almost immediately. Then tonight we talked and laughed for hours...until my stomach hurt. It was as though no time had passed at all.
With some friends, we might fall out of daily contact from time to time, but at our cores we're the same and the connection never goes away. You know?
So, I want to send a shout out to all my Belly Laughing cohorts! What would I ever do without you???
And speaking of laughing, my laugh is really loud. Sometimes people come up to me and ask "were you at the seven o'clock showing of "X"...I thought I recognized your laugh!"...but it's good for our health so why not really let loose? That's yet another thing I love about my honey, he makes me laugh...we can be total dorks with each other.
As we get older, everything seems to get so serious. I love being silly and love people who will be silly with me. I think that's something most of my friends have in common with me. So, a challenge to all of you out there...release your inner dorks!
