And Then I Laughed Until I Cried

I have been waiting to post something until I had a funny story to tell. I just feel like being funny and unfortunately nothing funny has happened worthy enough for me to really write about. Or at least funny enough that I don't have to tell you the story I am about to tell you.

The other day I was just minding my own business about to do my business and somehow the short walk in my teeny tiny bathroom caused my feet to become all tangled up and I thrust forward first hitting the toilet and then trying to correct myself fell butt-first into the shower. Taking down the curtain and all.

It was one of those moments I was so glad no one was around to see or hear.

And so of course that is why I'm telling you. Because it's almost more embarrassing that I did that and no one saw. It was hilarious.

I'm in need of a good laugh. Please tell me the last thing that made you laugh so hard you cried.

  1. Last night my almost-three-year-old decided to crab walk from his potty bathroom to the bath tub bathroom butt naked. Doing weird kid yoga all the way there. My husband and I about died laughing while trying to look away. INAPPROPRIATE CRAB WALKING, SON.

  3. For years we have made fun of my mom because once she started laughing so hard a chocolate chip from the ice cream she was eating came out her nose.
    About 3 weeks ago we were eating mexican food and my 3 year ols told some Knock Knock Joke. I was in a giddy mood so I really started to laugh next thing I know I feel this horrible burning. A jalepeno sumhow got stuck in my nose from my laughing. The whole situation was hillarious yet very painful. I picked up the phone and told my mm she was off the hook, because a jalepeno trumps a chocolate chip.

  4. That sounds exactly like something I would do.

    I had to take a sabbatical due to pregnancy illness from a huge choir I'm a member of and the day after they announced that Donny Osmond was bringing his whole Vegas show up to perform with them.

    (I'm not a huge Osmond fan but DOOD! The lost story telling potential is killing me!)

    When I told my friend about it she wrote and told me to cheer up and that she'd be my "soldier of love" since Donny couldn't.

    It totally made me crack up. Maybe it was because until that moment I totally forgot about his "come back". Heh.

  5. Laughed until I cried huh? Hmm .... well I do laugh a lot on a daily basis because of my kids as well as the day care kids and some of the questions and antics they come up with. But, a down right goofy, uncontrollable giddy laughter until tears came ... too long ago. I have those moments everytime I see my sister. We find a reason to laugh ourselves silly for no reason at all. That would mean I had a few of those during the Christmas holidays and hopefully again soon if she can get a flight into here for Easter.

    Those out of control laughter moments are so needed aren't they? Sending you big hugs ...

  6. That's a beautiful story - yes it made me chuckle! And of course you had to share it - I mean come on - what's the fun in embarrassing ourselves if we don't get to blog about it?

  7. now, that is a funny!

    for me - I often laugh at myself, because I am so clueless, but my cry, laugh, cry story would be --

    we just moved into our new house and we were busy painting, unpacking, decorating and just plain enjoying our new home. well I took on painting the bathroom. mind you an awful green color. as I was stepping down from the latter, my foot up to the top of my ankle went right into the ugly green paint. paint spilled all over the floor (no drop cloth), I slipped coming down the latter, and sat in the middle of the mess -- first crying, than laughing, than laughing so hard I started to cry again!

    a lot of hilarious stuff happens in the bathroom:)

  8. Yesterday my 4-year-old gave herself a haircut. Which was sort of sad, because I liked her long hair. But also totally funny. She just comes to me with a clump of hair, all proud of herself. "Look what I did, Mama! I always wanted a haircut!"

  9. Ah that is a good one, although I'm glad you didn't hurt yourself!!! No funny stories come to mind for some reason, which is weird, because I constantly laugh at myself!

  10. humm... when my daughter (age 4) thought she knew how to wink. she said something totally snarky to daddy, then looked at me and "winked" which was basically a wierd pirate-y "arrugh-matey" kind of look, while we were CRACKING UP at her attempt to imitate my habit at winking at the kids. Now we keep saying "Wink, Gracie" just to see it.

    Or possibly the other day at a friends house, when she went to shake up the milk and the lid wasn't on tight and it EXPLODED all over her kitchen, all over her, all over me and all over another friend. The look on her face was priceless!!!

  11. I guess I don't make myself laugh like that -- I just get annoyed! Sad to be me. ;)

  12. Wait -- your question was about silly things you do yourself that make you laugh until you cry, not what other people do, right? Hmm....

  13. I'm glad you didn't hurt yourself. Very funny since you didn't though. ;)

  14. Okay I have a good one. All three big kids share a room right now. Imagine bedtime.

    Everyone is tucked in tight, lights turned off. My son had snuck books into bed and was reading by nightlight, when my oldest comes out to taddle. This is the part that makes me laugh...

    She complains that he is reading and we ask if he is reading out loud. No she says. Then she immediately whips out..."But I CAN read his mind! When he turns the page I know what he is reading." LOL

  15. P.S. Very glad that you are okay and didn't break your arm or something!!!

  16. I love your story. (sorely disappointed that I missed it, however.)

    I can't help but laugh out loud when I picture Arianne calling directTV and also when she acts like Kathy Lee. She's a funny girl.

  17. My boys make me laugh all the time, but nothing is coming to mind (except for when Miles said he was getting UN-naked, rather than saying he was getting dressed)

    Just today I was thinking about this trip I took with some friends in my early twenties. We drove about twenty hours into Canada. On our way back, we weren't driving exactly in the right direction to get to the Minnesota border, but we didn't know that. It was 3 a.m. and we were giddy tired and so happy to see the border ahead. As we got closer, we realized the sign said "Welcome to Montana" rather than "Welcome to Minnesota" OOOOPS. All we could do was laugh.

    I love your falling in the shower story--hilarious.

  18. I went to pick up Aiden at his dads. "mom, can I like pink?" Sure baby you can like pink "I want that slidy things the girls had on tv" I looked perplexed and his father shook his head and informed me that Aiden wanted a polly pocket. Aiden defending himself "it has ANIMALS" His father getting more impatient "they are dolphins made of GLITTER" It still is making me giggle ;)

  19. Beth totally stole mine, so I have to say that the last time I laughed until I cried was the chocolate box incident followed by poor Arianne slamming her head into the horribly placed ledge. Arianne needs her own TV show.

  20. Um, since you went with embarrassing funny, I'll do that =)

    So, awhile ago I accidentally flashed the neighbors. Like, months ago. I didn't have any clothes and our laundry is in the detached garage, and our dog was leashed in the breezeway that connects them. I got out of the shower, realized I had no clothes, and then made a towel-clad run through our house (with no drapes) and out to the breezeway on the way to the garage. I startled the dog, who then proceeded to tug at my towel, and while I was trying to unlock the garage door and fend off the dog?

    My towel slipped down a notch or two. Which is right about when I noticed my neighbor across the street just standing there in plain daylight watching the scene unfold.

    Of course, I couldn't be sure he saw anything. And as time went by and nothing was mentioned, I just assumed he had not.

    Until a few nights ago, when we were all standing around talking and he made a comment about how our laundry was in our garage. I didn't think anything of it at first, but then he started LAUGHING about what a hassle our dog can be when we're getting the laundry.

    Which is when I knew lol. OOPS!

    Anyway, I hope that you're okay and you didn't hurt yourself!

  21. I can certainly relate to getting feet tangled up. I was just jogging in place in exercise class (in the front row) and my right foot came down on the side of my left foot. Down I went in front of the whole class. We Wilsons aren't know for our wonderful coordination are we. At least you were alone - too bad you didn't catch it on film - it might have won you $$ on AFV.

  22. Oh, my goodness, that is hilarious. Hmmm...laughing so hard I cried...Z has been doing a lot of little antics today...although today has been quiet the day in another way...rather trying, actually. But he's sick, so he gets a little bit of a free pass, right? :) We went for a walk the other day, first I let Z walk by himself, and the first thing he did was fall front-first into the mud. He didn't think that was funny, but I did. Then I was carrying him, and slipped in the mud & we fell down. He didn't think that was much hilarious either. But it was. :)

  23. I can just picture you going bottom first into the shower. That's hilarious!!!

    But next time, can we have a vlog of this? ; )

  24. My husband was narrating our pets thoughts in an english accent. It was hilarious! He can always lighten my mood!

  25. I love that you shared that. Laughing at yourself is good times. :)

    I am always coming to school and telling the kids the last "hilarious" thing that happened to me. My best one of recent would have been walking back to my truck at the end of the driveway, after getting my mail. I held onto the door handle while I was trying to get into the truck. It was SO icy that I was taking it very slow. Unfortunately, my caution was in vain, as I very quickly lost my footing. Having nothing but ice under me, I held tight to the door handle, and I biffed right on the ground. But it didn't end there - I had on yoga pants, and they just slid across the ice. I spun around on my back, and ended up UNDER my truck with my left hand still holding onto the handle for dear life. I was laughing so hard - so hard, thanking the Lord that it didn't hurt and praying no cars were passing my me on my very busy road in the very small town in which I teach. I never realized quite how long my arms were, until that happened! tehehe

  27. Okay, you know how when you were little and got an eyelash and your mom qould blow it out? Well, when my son was about three he would try to blow his eyelash out of his eye, he is 8 now, but every time he would this everyone would laugh.

  28. omg! I'm laughing just thinking about what that looked like. Sometimes those are the best, when no one is around, and yet it's so funny you have to laugh at yourself!

    Here's something that might put a smile on your face. http://casualfridayeveryday.com/2009/03/17/a-little-something-extra/

  29. Oh Stephanie . . . if you only knew!! My nickname is Miss Grace and that is for a very good reason. I have so many stories, but probably one of the biggest standouts was during a performance in NYC. As we exited the stage, I fell into the orchestra pit. Horrible, but funny now . . . several years after the fact, though.

  30. Thanks for making my mascara run this morning. I can picture you doing that! This brings to mind the day Ivy was born and I went to sit in "That" chair at the foot of your bed and went right thru the seat and as I was getting up started to do "my business" cause I was laughing so hard. It's a good thing I packed a change of clothes cause remember, I had to take a shower? And mop the bathroom floor...I wouldn't change that moment now cause we can laugh about it.

  31. Not too long ago my 4 yr old little girl was trying to go #2. She normanlly has no problems but was having trouble that day. She was getting mad about not being able to go and finally said in an exasperated voice "Mommy, my poop is asleep and I can't get it to wake up!"

    It was really funny. :)

  32. I found my son at my desk, staring at the computer screen, so I asked what he was up to. He informed me he was working and I needed to go play. Oh my. :)

  33. It sounds just like you, Steph. ;)

  34. This story was really funny, but the fact that you posted it because it was too embarrassing not to share was even funnier!

  35. I know the last time I laughed till I cried was when I was with you, but the other thing that comes to mind was the "conehead" incident. I think I was crying for several reasons, tho.

    Also, this made me laugh yesterday: http://twitpwr.com/90w/
