Sunday Scribbling " Human"

My sunday scribblings is late this week, the prompt being " Humans" reminded me of this story, I hope I haven't told it before!


I have an infectious giggle. Humans seem drawn to that, albeit some may find it annoying at times. In the nineties I went to a local taping of the Jim Brynes variety show with friends. During the show my giggle echoed through the packed studio. My infectious laugh, turned heads, soon everyone was giggling. Some of the skits were so funny I couldn’t help myself. I do relinquish a laugh easily though!


The comedians figured out I was the catalyst for the big laughs directing their gaze towards me. Bruce Greenwood came on stage (an actor I’m not particularly fond of) threw a few flat one liners in my direction. I didn’t laugh. He was there to sing, but seemed hurt that I didn’t laugh. He tried again to no avail. In that moment I realized it doesn’t matter how much fame you attain, lurking insecurities can pull you down. He just became goofier as he tried to garner my giggles. He never did!


Every other comedian managed to keep me in hysterics.. Even the pianist turned around, kibitzed with me! After the two shows were taped, all the comedians came up to the table, shook my hand and thanked me personally for laughing so hard. It was a thrill I won’t forget! My friends said they should use me for laugh tracks!!

Aw, poor Bruce Greenwood. Course, he doesn't strike me as a particularly funny actor either.

But how awesome that all the comedians came up to shake your hand! You must have been their dream audience member.

I love thinking about your giggle. It makes me happy. I am slowly but surely coming back into the world. You have been a rock over this past 18 months. You will really never know.

I have something for you at my blog. You don't have to do anything with it. It's just there.

Love you,
Donna
