all this on here make me feel fine about laughing in innapropriate situations!
I do that sometimes, but I think it is just nervous laughter cos some things I laugh at just aren't funny...
I hadn't been listening to the conversation that my Nan was having with my Mum in the front of the car. Then, out of context, all I heard was "some nights he came straight away, some nights he left me hanging on for ages, and then some nights I didn't think he'd come at all and then whoosh, just when I least expected it, his banging was so hard it luckily woke me up, I'd completely dozed off..."
I almost died from laughter, until I found out she'd been talking about someone knocking on the door to check on her when she'd been very ill. It was highly awkward since no-one knew why I was laughing, so I went back into silence as my Nan continued talking, sounding hurt that I found her illness so funny.
I laughed when I found out my old childminder's dad died, he was chopped in half in a freak accident. It was nervous laughter.
I get the giggles a lot, but one of the worst times was when my RME teacher told us he'd been off because his Dad had died. He was wearing a rainbow tie at the time, and looking all bald and dejected, I felt SO terrible about it! But I've had it in exams, minute silences, etc. Actually, I laughed for ages in the middle of kissing someone once, because the song "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" started playing in my head everytime I went towards him xD (very nice about it though, bless)
We always used to laugh during science lessons. "Lubrication" - lmao.
