Enjoying a Good Laugh....

A friend of mine was sitting on my couch, having just returned from being away for fall break. We were catching up on our week apart, and I was relating to her my experiences this past Sunday.... the painful misery of it all...

She chuckled as I started my account of the day by telling her I'd "busted" through my "fat jeans", then nodded politely as I highlighted each subsequent difficulty.

Somewhere in the midst of that, her son came down to check out my fish tank.

"Hey, uhm, Ms. Linda....where are your FISH?"

"oh... they died"

My friend looked at me, wide-eyed. The once overly abundant supply of fish had trickled to nothing.

"I think I probably forgot to feed them...."

Her son shrugged and returned to the playroom. My friend started laughing - this deep, rolling, uncontrollable laughter.

Now it was my turn to look at her, "WHAT?"

Through her laughter, she said "You busted out your "fat jeans", AND you killed your GUPPIES?" The laughter continued...

"Oh my God! I love it.... You're HUMAN"

Oh yes.... very, very human....
