A giggle turned into a chuckle that begat

  • A giggle turned into a chuckle that begat a short burst of laughter out loud. A hearty guffaw then rounded steadily into the dreaded silent laugh where my stomach began to ache and

  • I coughed momentarily to disguise my amusement. Why wasn't anyone else laughing at Hamlet? The play hilarious! I must go back stage and thank Willy for the yuks. I folded my fan.
