To each his own. To me my own.

The tickle factor

I do love to laugh – always have, and always will. At anything and everything… whenever appropriate, that is. I’ve never been the kind of person who will giggle at anothers expense, though; like when someone trips, falls out of a chair, etc. Guess I just never found humor in a situation that had the potential of embarrassing another individual.

Last night my guy and I found ourselves in a discussion on being ticklish. Not actually tickling, just discussing it. πŸ™‚Β  So it seems that the older we’ve gotten, the less ticklish we’ve both become. Has anyone else run into this?

Even in my twenties, I was very ticklish in many many areas. But now… well you really have to catch me on a good day to implement the ole’ tickle factor. Unless, of course, it occurs during a romantic moment when I’m trying to remain serious. Yes, it does seem to only happen a ‘whim’ nowadays. This seriously saddens me!

There’s already a shortage of laughter in the world. But to see yourself losing that every-faithful ‘auto button’… well, let’s just say I’m taking that one pretty hard.

  1. Uh.Oh. I’m a terrible person. I can’t help but laugh when someone trips or falls. It is my knee-jerk reaction. I’m still pretty ticklish. Especially on my feet. When I’m getting a pedicure I giggle for 5 minutes straight. I think the more you are anticipating the tickle, the less likely you are to get a laugh.

      hahaha Emily, you’re not a terrible person. After all, this whole thing is what Americas Funniest Videos was founded on! And I do love that show…

      I’ll admit I usually have to contain myself during a pedi, too. It’s funny how the technicians always seem to sense this, and look up and smile – all while I thought I was doing a good job of hiding it. πŸ™‚

    Bailey says adults don’t engage in tickling and giggling as much because the phrase “it makes me pee” usually comes up.
