More yuks — gleeful, unfettered, hearty

Thank you, Washington Post, for making me laugh today.

Loving laughter

We laughed a lot when we had lunch together Saturday for the first time in 35 years. A lot and deeply. Didn’t talk about anything serious. Just swapped memories — and laughed.

“Back of the sun and way deep under our feet, at the earth’s center, are not a couple of noble mysteries but a couple of joke books.”

That little piece of wisdom is from Tennessee Williams.

And,  I like it.

On laughter

“I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose.” — Woody Allen

Me, too. Well, even when milk comes out of my nose. Or maybe even especially when it does.

Cleveland, 1984

Tom: Have you seen the crackers?

Me: I just saw Linda putting cheese on one.

Tom: Man, why don’t those people change their last names when they come over to this country?

Still smiling over that one.
