Have You Seen This? Belly laughs for lunch
Theres probably nothing in this world that will make people smile faster than a baby who is hysterical with laughter. - photo by Martha Ostergar
THE HIGH CHAIR Whatever this says about me, I dont love babies.

Theyre fine as humans go, but I dont seek out their company or crave interaction with them. (I accept that some people will think my opinion makes me a monster, and Im fine with that.)

However, the one thing about babies that I do love is when they get into the belly-laugh stage. You know what stage Im talking about the stage where everything seems to be funny, so hysterical laughter comes easily. I love it partly because its hard to resist pure joy, and partly because what babies find funny is inexplicable.

Take for instance the baby in this video. She thinks her dad is a regular comedian for bobble-catching a plastic container and saying Woah! over and over and over again. The inane repetition would be boring for anyone else except a baby. Its the tiredest of slapstick jokes.

I know that there are hundreds if not thousands of videos of this kind on the internet or squirreled away on parents phones. But the thing about these videos is that it doesnt matter how many exist, for they will always be the best thing to hear when you need a few seconds of cheer.

If youre not at least grinning from ear-to-ear after seeing this, I guarantee your money back for watching this free video.
