The card? "Fire of Asshurbanipal."
Come on. How can you not laugh at that?
While we were calming down, Matt said something like, "Thank God! I thought I was the only one. I always feel like such an asshole when I laugh at something like that."
In retrospect, that thought makes me sad. Laughter is healthy, healing and necessary for life. It's good to laugh. If laughing at juvenile humor makes a person an asshole, well, I guess I'm at the top of the list. Ever since Matt and I once talked about the inner 12 year old laughing at statements like "It's my duty" weeks ago, I've stopped trying to hold back my laughter.
You know what? I'm a lot happier these days and I think my giving up on proper decorum is why. I like to laugh and so does my inner 12 year old. These days, we laugh together.
