Last week we were talking about laughter therapies to make our life better. By curiosity I used my dear friend Google and googled laughter. Of course the first one which drawed my attention was "Laughter tips for relationships". I thought that would be perfect for my 42 year lasting relationship (with the same man).
The program starts early morning ! Each morning we should laugh together for 5 to 10 min. But there is a difficulty, how could we laugh together when I see Mr. G. climbing groaning out of his bed and stumbling over a cat or stepping barefoot in some cat vomit. Of course I have to laugh but he doesn't laugh at all, apparently he has no sense of humor. There must be something wrong with this therapy. Anyway I think it's rather hard to laugh in the morning, especially when you are in a hurry to get to work, have to swallow your coffee in a few seconds and try not to forget half of your things.
Once a day we should point out the day's absurdities to each other. Being a retired couple we live in a 24 h absurdity. It would be easier to point out the normal day happenings.
We also should seek humor together in a serious situation. This will be very easy when one of us drives the car against a tree, of course it is so funny to sit in a car wreck and laughing our heads off.
I should also play "Teasing Telephone Tag" by leaving outrageous messages ! I did this once telling him a tax inspector would come at 10 am, and I will never understand why he didn't laugh at all. Again this therapy hadn't worked.
The nicest tip is to "Practice laughing without control. Spit out food, wet your pants, wet each other's pants" Spit out food in the best restaurant is easy to do but I don't know how I could wet his pants, I would have technical difficulties ! or should I use a water pistol ?
And amongst other tips there also was "count the number of times you laugh each day. Compete and share them". I promise you from tomorrow on I will count ! Maybe I should set up a laughter poll.
