Laughing in Public

This week on the bus, I almost offended people because it may have looked like I was laughing at their conversation. (In reality, I was laughing out loud (hard) because I was reading Tina Fey’s book, Bossypants, and there was no holding it in.) 

I LOVE hearing people laugh in public. Laughs are so varied, so contagious, so joyful. I love catching a glimpse into a moment of laughter between, well, anyone. Does it make you happy or anxious? Do you like it or wish they would be quiet? To anyone who rides the 30 Soulard in St. Louis, I honor your discussion of Minnesota in the winter, and celebrate the humor of Ms. Tina Fey. My sincere apologies for any unintended offenses.
