Life, for most of us, is a humdrum affair of monotonous routine activities. Wake up at 8, get ready for work, slog through the day pleasing your boss, meeting deadlines, and come back home, spend some time with family. No fun, nothing adventurous to look forward to. All you crave for is for some way to erase the boredom. Laughing at others’ expense becomes the treat of the day! That’s right. If you can outsource everything- knowledge, business, and people- why not some fun? It’s free, won’t cost you anything. We are all familiar with the phrase ‘Smile a lot, it doesn’t costs anything’, then why not apply it and give yourself a treatment that you deserve.
Thinking how your lives can can be funny instead of a conundrum of boring affairs?

But, what is maturity if not being able to laugh at one’s own self?
10. Hard of Hearing?
It often happens, that even though you are not hard of hearing, but sometimes the words just do not register right in your mind. Drastic miscomprehension of the statements can be extremely hilarious. Your friend is talking about something, and your mind is fathoming it all wrong, taking you in an entirely different realm. He could be talking about proposing some girl, and you think he is talking about your sister. What ensues is mayhem of “How could you, man?” and “What the freaking hell is wrong with you? Do you love her too?” Imagine the thought of loving your own sister…that way!

Sometimes, and this is most common with teenagers, you feel like your family is driving you crazy. All are ignorant of your demands, and there is no light anywhere. Being a huge fan of Bollywood, you take inspiration, pack a small bag filled with nothings and run away. Out on streets, you realize you are a freaking idiot because you have no money. Meanwhile, your family discovers the ‘note’ you left for them. And because they are family, they know you’ll come back the same way you went. When you are exhausted, you return back, tiptoe to your room, only to be caught with smug faces of everyone. It might be embarrassing at the time, but the next time you think about running away, you will laugh at the scene you created last time. Some funny incidents are actually educational!

You have twin brother/sister? This can be deliberate or by chance. Often, twins are mistaken for each other, and they take full advantage of it, specially kids. Let’s say there are two kids, twins, Brian and John. Mother calls out, “Brian, drink your milk else you won’t be allowed to play!” You go and say,”Mommy, you just made me drink this”. Switch places with your brother as soon as your mother isn’t watching and keep repeating this. Saved from drinking the distasteful liquid, without getting caught! Let Mommy think which one’s making a mess, and repeat the same thing when she catches one of you. God help parents who have twin children!

It never fails to amuse, even when told again and again. “Remember when you thought the air was a chair? ” Truly, some incidents never stop being funny. Evergreen, old is gold!
