I am easily amused. Just tonight, I was at an event and we had a stack of 4 Operation games that we were cleaning up. A friend and I simultaneously pushed and held down all 4 red buzzer noses, making the boxes audibly vibrate. It was great. Easily the best moment of the night. Woo! Guess you just had to be there.
So, if you're like me, then you definitely agree with me on all these things.
1. You're Constantly Laughing (and probably moving while doing so)
There are several different laughs. We've got the chuckle, the awkward laugh, the courtesy laugh, and the, best, real laugh. That real laugh is intense. You're rocking back and forth and moving your hands and, most likely, being obnoxiously loud. Then, you probably just start laughing at how hard you're laughing. It's a wonderful cycle.
2. Everything is Hilarious
Especially if no one else thinks it is. If everyone else thinks something deserves the chuckle, you think it deserves the real deal. And you treat it as such, because obnoxious, remember?
3. Others Don't Get It
"Oh, my gosh, Becky. Pls, stop. You're being ridiculous. You better be glad you got that good hair." That's pretty much what you hear on the daily. People who aren't like us can't understand us. It's like we're an elite club or something.
4. People Look at You Like You're Crazy
You know that look you get when you start laughing. Everyone's panicking because they don't know how to respond in such a situation. They don't actually know what's happening when you bust out, so they get all deer-in-the-headlights-like and just shift their eyes around to each other, like "Do you get this? What's going on?"
5. People Know What You're Thinking
Everybody can read the emotions plastered across your face from a mile away. If they know you really well, they can see the laugh coming on. They probably still don't get why anything is funny though. It's too bad they don't have a sense of humor.
6. You're Never Bored
Boredom offers some of the best comedy. That's when you start to really get delusional and literally anything becomes funny. And then because you're "bored," you think you're tired and you start absent-mindedly rubbing your face while laughing and you look certifiably insane.
7. You're Prone to an Infantile Joy
Kids laugh at pretty much anything. So, people like us who also laugh at pretty much anything are basically children. Your amusement makes you feel the joy of being a kid again. Congratulations, kiddo!
8. Your Cheeks are Consistently Sore
Also, ribs. Those are a fun one too. If you aren't laughing, then you're definitely smiling. And too much of a good thing starts to bring the pain. But it's not a pain we ain't ready for. I ain't no snowflake.
9. Being Around Other Easily Amused People Rocks
People who think like you and get your sense of humor are so few and far between that if you find one, grab them in a vise grip and never ever let go. Literally ever. I'm really not kidding. They're super cool and fun and it's better to laugh with someone than by yourself.
10. You're Rarely Impressed
Just because things amuse you doesn't mean that you think that serious things are nearly as cool. It's much more difficult for me to think you've done an outstanding job on something than it is to get me to laugh at you. If you can combine the two, you the real MVP.
