I am not that funny. Every once in a while though I do get silly. When I see people walk into walls or trip over items, that cracks me up. I don’t know why. The person never gets hurt, but it’s a certain surprised look or how they recover that gets me every time, and then I hit autorewind in my brain and I end up laughing more throughout the day.
