I'm easily amused.
And so is he, so that works out great, especially when it comes to keeping my "make someone laugh every day" New Years Resolution!
A few days ago, I told him a story about a lady at my church who says "How are you?" in a very specific, slightly exaggerated way. This "How are you?" is generally accompanied by her leaning in to look right in your face and an affectionate hand clasp. She's a very sweet lady and very sincere. "How are you?" it isn't funny when she says it...it would just be funny if anyone besides her did it that way. So, yesterday, I ran into Jon-Jon in the copy room and looked at him as seriously as I could and said "How are you?" in that very particular and affected way. He cracked up laughing. So did I.
And with that, Day 1 of the "make someone laugh every day" campaign was officially a success!
Note to self: Having inside jokes helps when you are trying to make people laugh.
