Laughing when things aren't funny

I love to laugh. Jonathan loves to laugh. We love to laugh together. We have from the second we met. He's not just a pretty face, he's one of the funniest people I know and we laugh more than anyone. Laughter is good medicine. I especially love inappropriate situations- they make me laugh more than anything. It's usually an inappropriate time to laugh but I can't help it. 

Here's a few funnies from the past few weeks. 

 My text to half my warriors the night of J's episode.

I'm sorry to this friend but I had to share because it's something that made me laugh longer and harder when I really needed to laugh. You can't be mad because BRAIN CANCER...

Speaking of Brain Cancer.. Jonathan and I were calling Brain Tumor which we thought was the ultimate trump card but Brain Cancer definitely trumps Brain Tumor. So, we call it "Brain Cancer". We use it to each other, to our friends, family, neighbors and soon strangers. Why? I don't know. It makes me laugh when things aren't funny.

Jonathan: Ice cream sounds good.
Mary: It's in the freezer.
Jonathan: Brain Cancer.
Mary: Fine.

A few scenario I've worked out in my head.
Mary: Hey Friend, want to come over and sit and look at each other.
Friend: I have some errands to run.
Mary: Brain Cancer
Friend: I'll be over in a bit.

Teacher: Your child has been cussing in sunday school...
Me: Brain Cancer
Teacher: I'm sure I just miss heard him.

Fisherman: I caught a 25' great white shark by the tail in midair.
Me: Brain Cancer
Fisherman: You win.

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
-proverbs 17:22

God is bigger than this and Jesus Can Fix-It.

How about:

Mary: Hmm, I love everything about this car, except the price. $30,000 seems a little steep.
Car Salesman: I'm sorry ma'am, that's as low as I can go.
Mary: Brain Cancer
Car Salesman: How does $19,500 sound?

My mom had a glioblastoma- our favorite line was- " there's only one letter difference between humor & tumor, we choose humor!"

Your conversations sound like the ones I had with my husband, he had a glioblastoma multiforme (grade 4 astrocytoma)...he also would get his way! I will be praying for you on this journey...may God be glorified!
