Tragedy Giggles

Have you or someone you know ever had a case of tragedy giggles aka nervous laughter? I remember when my sister got a case of the giggles after she side-swiped a car. The police were asking her what happened and she just giggled as she told them. They asked her what was so funny in a stern voice. When she came out of the giggles she cried uncontrollably at what had happened! During a game of touch football my teenage kids laughed a me for getting knocked down on the ground. A friend yelled at them for it! I said, “it isn’t their fault, that was the way they were raised.” One time in high school a classmate told me about a kid in our class who was killed from running out into the street between parked cars-not funny! But he was such nerd, we just got a case of the giggles! When our teacher asked us to share what was so funny with the rest of the class, we just couldn’t do it! We were sent to the principal’s office. We wouldn’t tell them either, we had to stay after school that day in a study hall for our punishment! What the world needs now is more laughter, but not more tragedies!
