Attitudes Are Contagious. Laughter is Even More Contagious.

I was sitting at my computer minding my own business when I was suddenly attacked with this noise.




And then a shriek, “Coie….my arm….FIX IT! Bwahumawbluh!”


The bwahumawbluh and shriek had protruded from my momsie’s lips.  She was holding her left arm and at first I was alarmed, especially since she has a heart condition.  But when I turned and saw the look of horror and amazement blended into her facial features, I couldn’t help but be amused.


“I can’t control it!  It’s whacking out.  Fix it, Coooooooohohoie!!! Bwahumawbluh!”


Laughing, I approached her and picked up her arm to see what the matter was while she blubbered out more “bwahumawbluh’s” and “fix-it’s”.  Her forearm was convulsing.  Seriously.  It looked like she had a frog in her veins.  It was really cool, and between that and her reaction all I could do was giggle my freckled nose off and keep myself from drooling (which I am too often apt to do while laughing so hard).




*squeaky uncontrolled laugh* “How am I supposed to fix it?!”


“I don’t know, just do it! Bwahumawbluh!”


So I took her hand and bent it backwards.  We waited a few seconds, amid peals of laughter, and realized that it worked.  So I stood there and held her hand because she thought she was incapable of doing it herself.  I gave her some heart medication, and then I tied her hand up and then obeyed her orders to “look up what’s wrong with me!”  I searched.  I googled.  I read and read.  Finally, I found a humorous blog post from someone that had the same problem.  He actually measured the beat of his twitching and figured out which songs matched best to the different twitching areas he had. 


He put the blame on something called West Syndrome and said that the twitching is sometimes a sign of mental retardation.  When I related this information to mom, we both burst into hysterical laugher which did not end for a while.  I laughed my whooping chipmunk guffaw, while she laughed, whined and snorted all at the same time.  We were both in tears.  I think we were just releasing our misery from having dad gone in Atlanta for the week.  Oh, we are so funny.

    Okay… I have this strange problem that if anyone laughs I laugh… even if I don't know what they are laughing about. My children have been known to fake fits of laughter just to get me to do this stupid trick!

    That video was crazy! But oh, so REAL! LOL… ROFLOL!

    That video is sooo funny! I'm a dorky contagious laugher as well…if you're laughing too hard, too long at something and I walk in the room, I can't help but laugh and THEN ask <i>what's so funny?</i>

    I really enjoyed James' public appearance as well. Him and Dozer should get together. They seem to speak each other's language!


    PS Y'all need to quit having so much fun together when your dad is away. You're going to make him sad!

    Loved the video. My big, dumb bulldog, Pete, actually stood next to me at the computer with his head cocked sideways, trying to figure out what all the giggling was about. Thanks for sharing – Karen (bensrib)
