Laughing at someone else's pain...an American pastime


Doughie, very seriously, came up to me one evening and said, "When you get older, there are less things to talk about--I have noticed that." She looked around sagely and spotted her younger sister playing and continued by saying, "Sassy is so young. She laughs at everything....even when people are getting hurt."

I choked on my food and tried to fathom her thought process. I said to her, "Yes....Sassy is young. But your papa was laughing at people getting hurt tonight too." I am ashamed to admit we were watching America's home videos and enjoying it too much.

She replied by saying, "Yeah....well...that is papa...and he is a boy." Like that should explain everything. And sadly, in my mind, it did. :D

Do you ever watch America's funniest home videos and have a guilty night of mindless enjoyment?

Those pictures are great! My kids love that show and they laugh hard when they are watching it.

I was laughing at other people's pain on America's Got Talent last night. Some people are clueless.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
