When Inappropriate Laughter Strikes!

Our pastor said something along the lines of, "We have become much more supportive of unwed mothers. There was a time in history when unwed mothers were stoned."
I immediately imagined young girls in robes, smoking the whacky weed and ending up preggers. That was all it took to send me down the rabbit hole of inappropriate laughter. 
Bending beneath the pew, pretending to rummage through the diaper bag didn't help me. Seeing my husband's confused face didn't help me. The snorting and full body shaking wouldn't stop. I tried to explain to my husband, "They were stoned! Get it? Stoned?" 
I suffer from "Inappropriate Laughter Syndrome." The more serious the occasion, the more likely I am to have a flare up. 
I'm sharing another "Inappropriate Laughter" moment In The Powder Room today. Please meet me there and tell my that I am not alone.
Have you ever suffered from "Inappropriate Laughter Syndrome?"

  1. OMG innapropriate laughter, yes! In high school I went shopping with 2 of my friends. My one friend borrowed her mom's car, with the responsibility of picking her mom up from work at a specified time. The mall we went to is HUGE, with an equally HUGE parking lot. Being young and dumb, we parked the car without giving a rat's ass to where we parked. Needless to say, we couldn't find the car when we were supposed to leave to pick up my friend's mom from work. My friend was so nervous about being late to pick up her mom, and all I could do was laugh uncontrollably while my friend frantically serached the parking lot for 30 minutes. Ugh; I felt like such an ass, but I couldn't stop. Can you say, "Awkward?" ;0

  2. I think we've all had a moment of innapropiate laughter once or twice. I was having lunch with co-workers. My one co-worker begins to tell a story of how she's allergic to smell and that it runs in the family. (I'm laughing just writing this) She goes on to tell us that her aunt has to wear a surgical mask when she goes out in public to prevent an allergic reaction. All I could do was picture some crazy lady walking around with a mask. I burst into laughter with tears in my eyes. I looked at her and she was offended. Oops! It's still funny to me...
