I have some … quirks.
Namely, I tend to laugh hysterically at things that no one else gets. Which can be pretty embarrassing when I’m in the grocery store randomly laughing because I’m standing in the exact spot where I first discovered two little boys braying like donkeys 6 months earlier. Or because I remember Amy Poehler in an episode of “Parks and Recreation” saying her niece’s name was Torple. Torple cracks me up. I think I want to name my next child Torple.
It’s always a good time when I go into a public bathroom where a mother is attempting to calm a child throwing a tantrum. That is like a comedic gold mine for me. I like to go up to the woman, nod with a sympathetic look, and then say, “Wow. That must be embarrassing. I’m glad my child never behaves like that. Ever.” And then laugh hysterically. Sometimes, for a little added genius, I’ll give her some BS piece of parenting advice, “You haven’t been giving little Junior his daily dose of bunny seed essential fatty farm gecko oil have you? tsk tsk tsk! I would also recommend a grasshopper essential eyeball herb supplement; you can find it in liquid form at any health food store.” That’s the best.
