Laughter. Legitimate laughter. Hard to beat.
Shared laughter. Can't be beaten.
Marianne and I have shared a bazillion laughs
in our 34 years together. We have been known to
have original conversations, but due to the fact that we often
speak in movie lines, our daughter Jessica has declared that
we have no personalities of our own. To which we laugh.
We both know that if we were to just have met, and one were to
introduce the other to "Young Frankenstein" or "The Princess
Bride", or "Best In Show", and the newbie didn't get it....then we would be doomed.
But we both do get them. They are our "Litmus Test Movies".
You probably have a couple yourself. Perhaps "Austin Powers"
or "The Hangover".
I'm not sure it works with dramas. Maybe it does, but it's much
more fun with comedies.
Laughter is the sticky stuff for us.
Remember: You can't spell laughter without the letters g-l-u-e...
