Whoo-hoo! I worked my way over the 10% mark. The virtual pile of paper is getting larger, and so far so good.

A Question for the Sages:

If someone says they hate being tickled, why do they keep laughing? *

Seriously, isn’t laughter supposed to be a response to joy? Or does this indicate that laughter is something else? If anyone knows a good answer to this one, I’d love to hear it.

*I know, I know. My mind is a strange place.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Oh and this quiz was fun (and fairly accurate):

“What if?” creativity: You’re creative, but not weird or creepy. Well, at least not usually. Odds are you have your moments of both, but on the whole you live a pretty normal life and see your forays into your imagination as either a hobby or a profession, but not a way of living.

You know, I laugh too when I am really nervous. I can’t help myself as I am not always comfortable around strangers, so I either laugh or giggle. I think perhaps in that case it would be to expend energy (nervous energy). So, perhaps, when we are tickled and we laugh we are expending some excess energy …

And go you over your 10% mark. πŸ™‚

That’s as good a theory as any I’ve heard so far.

I have a feeling a large majority of writers would fall in the “what if” category. Especially those of us who enjoy writing in genres as our plotlines are typically based around “What if?” scenarios.

I think it was _The Naked Ape_ by Desmond Morris that described “zoological” origins for smiles and laughter. If a stranger makes faces at a child, she might cry out in fear. If a parent, someone she trusts, makes the same faces, she knows the “threat” isn’t real and she laughs. Relief.

I just watched the first episode of The Human Face last night, a BBC documentary hosted by John Cleese. It didn’t talk about origins but it said that the body can’t tell the difference between fake/forced laughter and the real thing; they both have health benefits.

Thanks, Robert. I saw most of that documentary a while back and thought it was pretty good. It was during a time I was really interested in communication theory and been studying Edward T. Hall’s “The Silent Language.” Interesting stuff.
