Laugh Your Life Away
R U JOKING, GRANDAD BLOG 29th November 2017
A few days ago in Blog of the Day I reported that adults laugh only six times a day where as children laugh nore than 150 times a day.
I thought it was a good time to focus on laughter and what makes you laugh.
What makes you laugh?
Think about it and tell me as many things as you can at the very bottom of this post where it says “Leave a Reply” in the box marked “Comment”. Make the list as long as you like
Laughing is an integral part of mine and Jeannie’s (Mamma) life and is what has kept us going through the years.
- There’s always something funny in most things and most situations in life if you for it.

There are Grandad jokes too. Those funny quips that I think are funny but no one else does.
A laugh is… a smile that bursts, an instant vacation, a day not wasted, music to the soul, a cheap medicine. The more you laugh the more you live!
Of course, most of what I have listed is material in the media but there is so much natural humour in everyday life too, which tends to be the very funniest.
So please tell me below about the things that make you laugh.
