At a comedy club, in the presence of friends at a birthday party or at your friend's wedding when she smashes cake all over her new husband's face. But finding yourself chuckling at Aunt Mary's funeral while your cousin is giving a eulogy is not a good way to express your condolences.
I can name many times that I have laughed an inappropriate times. When my son fell off the ladder in his bedroom and was crying that he got a boo boo, was not a fine time to smile and fight off a chuckle. It doesn't make me a bad mom. I would think it would if it was the first time but since this incorrect expression has happened many times in my life, I just figure I'm wired wrong.
I've found myself trying to stifle a laugh when a friend of mine was getting yelled at by another friend. I should have been angry but I couldn't get that part of me to trigger to anger. I actually had to walk away and compose myself before returning to the room.
About a month ago, I read a blog somewhere that gave a name for it. But I spent over an hour trying to find it again without any luck.
I've never laughed at a funeral or church at the wrong time. Thankfully. I'm not sure I'd be able to explain my sudden outburst of laughter.
5.) I sometimes laugh when I’m uncomfortable…or being yelled…or in church…or at a funeral. Write about a time when you laughed at an inappropriate time.
