There’s a time and place for everything… especially laughter! Giggling in church and laughing during a funeral… Definitely not appropriate places to laugh. Steve told a story about how he ruined his baseball career by laughing at his coach’s pep talk. Because of Steve’s laughter he was suspended from the following game; the biggest game of the season for Steve because numerous pro ball scouts were at that game and he didn’t play.
Slacker remembers a time when he started laughing uncontrollably at a funeral. He couldn’t quite recall exactly what had caused him to laugh, but needless to say the floodgates opened and there he was… laughing hysterically at a funeral.
What inappropriate places have you laughed?
There have been countless times I’ve not been able to hold in my laughter at church. It’s not that I don’t take the sermons seriously it’s just that church is unfortunately the best place to calm your mind and meander down memory lane and that lane always happens to have some of the best inside jokes and memories you can remember. Hence, uncontrollable giggles that make church really inappropriate and awkward.
