I have been known, on occasion, to get a serious case of the giggles. My husband says it isn’t so much giggling as it is cackling, but I prefer to think of myself as demure. Mostly because I prefer lies.
A few nights ago, my daughter taped one of my laughing fits. Ironically, I was laughing this hard because she wasn’t laughing. I kept saying, “How can you not think this laughing is hilarious?” Because, clearly, it was. You can’t see me, but you can hear me. You can definitely hear me.
Because I think a good chuckle is good for the soul I’m sharing some of my recent favorites from Twitter, and by recent I mean from the last year. I’m 42; February was recent. Enjoy.
I like Little Miss Muffet. She's got a whey about her.

Can't get a Choco Taco at a Taco Bell anymore, but people still ask me to fax them documents. This is not progress.

Pregnant cousin who says she will NEVER have an epidural or c-section says she also will never, ever, ever dye her hair. *grabs popcorn*

Stuck on the side of the road really regretting replacing my spare tire with an emergency cheese wheel.

If you put your hospital gown on backwards and wander into the lobby the doctors will let you stay another night.

I love that Dora's mom is such a steadfast free range parent. Yet, part of me wants to scream YOUR BABY'S ALONE IN THE WOODS WITH A MONKEY!

Really enjoying this "I don't care if you live or die, I need a ride to my friend's house" stage my kids are going through.
