What Makes Me Laugh - Tuesday Ten Linkup

I cannot believe today is the first day of April!  There were times, between crazy weather and crazy schedules, when I thought March would never end.  Then, all of a sudden, I blinked and it was gone!!  

The calendar doesn't lie, though, and sure enough - it's April.  Traditionally, the first day of April is April Fool's Day, so we thought it would be fun to share things that make us laugh for Tuesday Ten.  I've never been a huge fan of April Fool's Day because I don't like surprises or practical jokes and I am inherently un-funny.  But, I could certainly use a little stress relief and they say that laughter is the best medicine, so her are ten things that always make me laugh!

#1-3 - (Is that cheating?) My three daughters make me laugh.  Whether it's ridiculous jokes that don't make any sense, crazy outfits, or silly songs, my girl are some of the best when it comes to making me smile and laugh.    See?  

(Apparently, the oldest one is much too mature to make silly faces for me to post on my blog.  But, she is still funny - sometimes.)

#4 - My hubby makes me laugh.  I tend to be a pretty serious person, but, over the years, he has helped me loosen up quite a bit.  Although, I'm sure he would say I still have a long way to go. 

#5 - Our dog, Sophie makes me laugh.  Usually, it's when she does this:

#6 - Sometimes, TV makes me laugh.  They used to make me laugh more because THESE SHOWS FROM THE 80's were so much better than today's show, in my opinion.  I don't have as much time to watch TV these days, either, but when I do there is almost always a rerun of The Big Bang Theory somewhere and I laugh.

And, Friends reruns always make me laugh, too!  I mean, really, I dare you not to laugh at the at Joey with a turkey stuck on his head!

#7- Moveis make me laugh.  I usually watch romantic comedies or, of course, Disney movies.  And, how could you not laugh at Olaf!?!

#8- Social media makes me laugh.  All the cards people post on Facebook and the witty tweets other people share make me chuckle.  As I said, I don't consider myself funny, but, once in a while, my kids even give me good social media fodder!

#9 - People make me laugh.  Sometimes, it's people posting ridiculousness on social media.  Sometimes, it's those "Dumb Criminals" stories.  Sometimes, it's other bloggers who post funny stories or parental anecdotes.  Sometimes, it's even my real life friends who overreact or share their own blunders.  It really all boils down to people.
#10- Exasperation makes me laugh. Sometimes, you just get so frustrated, or angry, or tired, there is just nothing else to do but laugh.  It can be a great stress reliever.

Perfect list and must admit I pretty much agree with your list, but add my husband and my girls on the top and you summed it up perfectly about what makes me laugh, too!! :)

Kristi - Finding Ninee said...

I can't believe it's April. Of course, it was snowing/sleeting here on Sunday so we'll see if it's actually spring or not! And I love your girls' faces - even your oldest's deadpan look is funny because it just says so much! I miss 80's tv. Happy April 1, Lisa!

MamaRabia said...

I don't remember seeing that Friends episode the first go 'round, but watching it just now was hysterical!! Also, I think it's awesome that we both linked Big Bang Theory clips!

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Thanks Kristi! I have to laugh at that pic of my oldest because I know how hard I was trying to make her laugh and how hard she was trying no to! :-)

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

thanks for always linking up, Marcia!

Dana said...

What could be funnier than a turkey on your head? They just don't make sitcoms like they used to, do they? I agree with every item on your list - I love surrounding myself with people that make me laugh.

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

No, they certainly don't make them like they used to!

Tamara Bowman said...

My dog used to make that kind of bark/howl! We used to call it "woo-ing" so we called her "Woo Woo." She was a Samoyed. I loved it!

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Ha! We call it "rooting" because my oldest daughter's initials are REW and sometimes we call her "Roo/Rew." She loves animals & she and Sophie have a special connection. :-)

Dakota said...

Oh your girls are beautiful! I love their freckles...

I wish I could take a page out of your book for #10. I went for a run today, but it'd be so much easier to laugh it off!

Alison said...

Friends and The Big Bang Theory are my favorites! Never fails to make me laugh too.

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Thanks Dakota! And, #10 is something my husband taught me. :-)

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Every single time! :-)

LOL - love Sophie's communication! Yesterday my mom posted a dumbest criminal thing that happened where she lived. A man trying to rob Arby's got stuck in the vents overnight. Thanks to youtube I tracked down a Friends episode I had never seen. I think I missed a whole season of Friends trying to get pregnant. LOL - anyway it was the one wear Joey shaved off one of his eyebrows and Ross had to draw the other one on. Another favorite is Ross and the spray tan, and when Ross whitened his teach.

Allison C said...

YES, you can use your kids for 1-3. They are individual people in and of themselves. Love that. Also, high five on Friends. I can not turn off a Friends or Seinfeld episode, no ,matter how many times i have seen them.

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Ha! I almost put the Ross spray tan clip on here instead, but it was a little long. I was laughing so hard watching clips trying to pick one. I've never been a big Seinfeld fan, though.

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

They are indeed individual people! Not a big Seinfeld fan, but Friends gets me every time!

Kenya G. Johnson said...

Oh I WAS a Seinfeld fan. But I'm not interested in the reruns today. I could sit down and have a Friends marathon though.
