I have loved to laugh my entire life. Laughter comes with happiness, and brings even more happiness. Laughter feels like a volcano that is erupting after holding in it’s lava for years and years. It sounds like happiness as it explodes like fireworks. Laughter is when the sun comes up after a long, dark night. It brightens any situation and is as contagious as the flu. Sometimes I laugh so hard I cry or so hard that I can’t even make a noise and it’s just my body shaking. Everyone’s laughter sounds different. I know what my friend’s laughter sounds like because we laugh together so much.
One day, I was hanging out with my friends just like any other time we hang out. We started laughing and we just couldn’t stop. No one even said one particular thing that was hilarious, we just all thought everything was so funny. In the beginning we were pretty loud, but then we were all laughing so hard that it was dead silent except for when we were gasping for air since we couldn’t breathe. By the time our giggles had subsided, I was almost positive that my cheeks were stuck in a smile that was way too big for my face and I felt like I had just done an ab workout because my stomach hurt so bad. Tears were running down all of our faces and we just looked around as all of us caught our breath. Of course someone said something hilarious a few seconds later and we were all lost into a sea of roaring laughter all over again.
Looking back of that day, I don’t even remember what we were laughing about, but I can still feel my face and stomach aching and see the black streaks of mascara on our faces from crying. I think that day was the hardest I have ever laughed in my life and just thinking about it makes me smile. Laughter is contagious, whether it’s hearing someone else chuckle which makes you laugh, or like me, when I remember the day I laughed so hard that I cried, and I can’t help but crack a smile.
