Good For A Laugh - #MFRWauthor


We're here again for week. 18 of the #MFRWauthor blog hop. This week's topic is sure to put a smile on your face since it's all about things that make me laugh.

There are several things that can make me laugh. My children are always a good source of entertainment. My youngest especially(yes the one that wants to be a dragon). He's a real character and the things he does and says are always good at bringing about a laugh or two. Even if it's bad joke telling, like at dinner the other night.

Munchkin: "Why did the duck cross the road?"
The Hubs: "I don't know, why?"
Munchkin: "He wanted to get quacking."

It was joke day at school so that was our treat over dinner which lead to Curly Top (the 9yr old) trying his hand at joke telling and The Hubs jumped in for good measure. All were corny, told badly, and not really funny, but still they made me laugh from the sheer silliness of them. 

The Hubs: "Why was six afraid of seven?"
The Boys: "Because seven eight nine." (ha, you get it? you get it?)

They knew the answer to that one since the older brother had told it before.  He was at baseball practice or I'm sure the joke telling would have gone on longer. 

The Hubs is another source of laughter, seriously if you could see him dance you'd know why. I'm kidding (not really). We have a strange relationship in which we have no problem making fun of each other. Like with his dancing, he knows he can't but it doesn't stop him from doing it. The more I make fun of him about it, the more he'll do it. Fun times. 


Other than family, the standard things can also get a laugh out of me. A funny passage in a book, or a scene from a movie. I also have no problem laughing at myself when I do something crazy. It's all in good fun and they say laughter is the best medicine. For what exactly I'm not sure, but laugh anyway.

So what are somethings that make you laugh? Got any corny jokes to share? Leave them in the comments because I'm sure my kids would love to hear them.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the other blogs this week.

    1. Yes my younger two are always there to remind me. My teenage boy still hangs with his mom sometimes, even if he won't admit that's what he's doing.

    3. Thanks Ed. Luckily I've survived one set of teen years with my daughter and so far so good with my oldest son. Hopefully that'll stay that way once he enters high school next year.
