I know how to laugh.
I know how to chuckle when reading a P.G. Wodehouse novel.
I knew how to stuff my mouth with a handkerchief when a teacher made a blooper, such as, ‘India has many breeds of buffalo- male, female and so on.’
I knew how to laugh out loud when a clown tripped over a bucket in the circus arena.

I do my best with my daughter. I make sure she has her dose of laughter daily. It’s a necessary part of existence.
Laughter has filled my life, thanks to my parents, my friends and family, and today, my circle of bloggers.
Without it, Life would be a very awkward journey indeed.
