Laugh

Tea & Honey Bread's Shutter Click & Chat: Laughter

I hear it's contagious, so let me see YOU laughing. We've all got at least one candid picture of ourselves engaged in hysterical laughter. Don't be shy!


laugh (läf) v.i. 1. to express mirth, pleasure, or derision with a series of inarticulate sounds and facial or body movements. I really think this is the best definition I've ever read...inarticulate sounds...love that!





Hard to find a picture of myself laughing.....had to go way back to my fourteenth year (1981) for this one. Mark says this doesn't look like me...I told him it was probably because it was the last time (at 5' 10" tall) I weighed 136 lbs...a very brief period of skinny time...think Nicole Kidman thin.

“A smile starts on the lips,
A grin spreads to the eyes,
A chuckle comes from the belly;
But a good laugh bursts forth from the soul,
Overflows, and bubbles all around”

Hehe! That's cute! I'm a little worried that don't have any laughing pics from 1981 onwards.

This must be the third post you've done today? Or within a 24hour period? Geez you're good!

Great photo! I didn't laugh a lot at 14.....Just ask my Mom! LOL Eye rolling and snarling was my "thing" at 14 :)

Cute photo. I had no idea you were so tall!
I think I would have to dig deeply to find a photo of me laughing. I am pretty camera shy!

Hey, Gigglepuss! I can't think of a photo that caught me laughing... I'll have to do some research.
