The nonsense just got even more nonsensical when Miths decided to ramble on some Sardari jokes. Some of them were utterly corny, but that didn’t stop the laughter box in me from getting out of control. I was happily laughing away, until my sadist of a grandmother reported to the parents. My niece acted as the message passer and we were asked to tone it down.
Next morning, Dhanya wasn’t feeling all that great. I dunno if it was the excess of laughing that took place the previous night that made Dhanya so cranky but yes, she WAS cranky! All of a sudden, to make herself feel good she started singing ‘Happy friendship dayyyy to meee’ quite loudly. This made Pri dedicate ‘Tu Hi To Meri Dost Hai’ from Yuvvraj. I dunno if she played the song just coz she cared for me… or to silence me down. But anyhow, it worked.
Now that the song dedications were done with, it was time for breakfast…
Aunt : You guys were SO loud yesterday night! And dhanya, you were laughing the loudest!!
Dhanya : No way! It must have been chech. We sound almost similar, no?
Chech (the elder sister) : Nope nope… it was you only! I was almost asleep remember?
I found it hard to believe. I mean, I do laugh loudly but loud enough for the whole house to hear? Impossible! This was clearly a big misunderstanding.
On my way back home, sis and I got all kiddish and started playing zig zag zoo. This clearly amused Dhanya coz she started laughing aloud again…. and this time realization hits.
Dhanya (still shocked after hearing her own laugh) : Did I laugh like this yesterday nite?
Sis (grinning) : Oh yes you did!
Out of nowhere, two particular incidents came rushing back to me :
- The way people looked at me when I laughed after watching Tom & Jerry during my flight to Dubai. (and they were such nasty looks mind you! Travelling alone also worsened the situation).
- Distant relatives coming to visit us after a long time and looking stunned once they see the prim and proper looking gal bursting out (and nearly falling off from her chair) after hearing a really sad joke from a cousin.
So today is the day I finally realized that I laugh really loud. I cannot seem to control my laughter, or hold it within. I have laughed at the most inappropriate times and even ended up hurting some people’s sentiments. I laugh even when I am sad or feel like crying (oh yes I do!). I laugh when I really dunno what to say and I laugh when I do know what to say but then prefer not to.
Yes, I am a certified laughter box…. and I don’t seem to mind it one bit ;)
Happy Friendship Day! (Though I'm a day late). I must have already wished those bloggers who I have added on FB. This goes to the rest of em out there! Hope you had lotsa fun with friends and folks alike!
Special love to blogger friends Richa, Amith and Nikhil. I haven't known you guys for long, but whatever comments, jokes, fights and secrets shared makes your friendship all worth it already!
Richa - Someone who I can totally identify with. I dunno if it has to do with her being of the same age or anything. Her sense of humour just rocks!
Amith - Someone who has been extremely sweet to me till date though I want to see that angry side of him. I have tried to get him mad at me a number of times... but alas I've failed :(
Nikhil - My brother! Yes, he might call me the worst sister ever possible coz I never keep up my promises and I get damn forgetful about certain things but he has been kind enough to forgive me each time :D
Three cheers to all you bloggers out there - for being sweet, for being supportive.. for just being there! My blogging world wouldn't have been complete without you guys....
