Still laughing after all these years

Thirty plus years into marriage Sarah and I are still laughing. One morning last week I woke at 4:45 a.m., went into the bathroom, looked at myself in the mirror and smiled and laughed at myself. What a great mood elevator.

When Sarah woke two hours later, I told her about looking in the mirror and smiling and laughing at myself. I recommended it as a great way to start the day. I could hardly wait to see what my congenitally anti-morning bride would have to say. She didn’t disappoint. She said, “It’s a good way to look like you’re mentally ill.”

I’m still laughing.
