Sometimes, we just can’t help but laugh out loud
With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.
You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.
At the Art Market juried art show at Honey Horn, we asked: “When is the most inappropriate time you burst out laughing?”
Debi West, Hilton Head Island: “Anywhere I’m not supposed to laugh – at the movies, or a play – and always when it’s quiet.”
Judy Blahut, Hilton Head Island: “Many times when other people don’t laugh, I do. It’s because as an artist, I interpret things differently – little, normal things – and I often find them funny.”
Victoria Zlotkowski, Savannah: “When our children were young, we got a parrot. I taught them the German word for parrot, ‘papagei’ (papa-guy). Our daughter asked ‘Where’s mama guy?’”
Mirek Zlotkowski, Savannah: “At a wedding, when the best man tripped and knocked over the bride, groom and the officiant, into a pond behind them.”
Judy Smolek, Beaufort: “In high school, I was on vacation with a friend in Florida. We stayed with her aunt and uncle, and they took us to a nice restaurant. We started giggling and just couldn’t stop.”
