...laughter is the best medicine.
At the present time, I have to disagree.
I've been laughing this evening more than I have done in quite a while, thanks to a link that someone sent me via email, and I could really do with some conventional medicine to counteract the effects:
I laughed so hard upon viewing the link the first couple of times that I had a couple of coughing fits.
Then I made the mistake of watching said link a few minutes after I'd eaten my dinner, and - thanks to the cumulative effect from having watched it a couple of times already - I laughed even harder, and nearly threw my dinner up. Since then I've been suffering with indigestion.
I made the mistake of watching it again, which only served to intensify my indigestion and cause another couple of coughing fits. My eyes were stinging thanks to the tears of mirth rolling down, and I also ended up with a mild headache.
Alongside the various potions and medicaments that might thus settle my stomach, calm my headache and ease my poor chest and throat, I'm pretty sure I could also do with a dose of valium - since I can imagine thinking about the cause of all this mirth at an awkward moment, such as being sat on a crowded bus, and finding it hard to suppress yet more mirth.
I'm not exaggerating: I'm tired out.
I wonder if anyone who reads this blog has a similar sense of humour?
