I Cried So Hard...

Hello lovelies! I was thinking about today's topic for the Blog Dare - the last time I laughed so hard, I cried. I can't remember the exact circumstances of the last time this happened, but it happens to me all the time.

The one time that I absolutely remember so vividly of this happening happened several years ago. I was pregnant with Hannah and we were over at my parents house for a Sunday night dinner. I think I was about 5 months along. We had finished dinner and were just sitting around the table talking and telling stories. At this point in time I was still a newlywed, so there were a lot of stories being told with the families still getting to know all the history of each other.

I don't remember who started telling the story, but we we started talking about this one time when I was a teenager in Sacramento. We had some friends that we were helping to move. All the ladies were scrubbing and cleaning inside the house while the men were doing things outside or painting inside. The brother in law of these friends of ours had been painting and went to the kitchen to rinse off his paint brush. After he got all the paint rinsed off he was headed outside. He goes walking through to the back sliding glass door...I think you know where this is going...and WHAM! Slammed right into the CLOSED sliding glass door and bounced off it leaving a trail of water from the paint brush all over the freshly cleaned sliding glass door.

At this point of my parents retelling this story to my new husband, I am seriously dying of laughter. Now, when I laugh I LAUGH. My whole face turns red, I can't breathe, people start laughing AT me instead of with me. So I am 5 months pregnant, laughing hysterically for about 5 minutes straight when all the sudden I start sobbing. Absolutely sobbing, tears streaming down my face - ugly cry, sobbing. It was like within .2 seconds of laughing hysterically that I shifted to sobbing and I am not exaggerating when I say this, I bawled for 4 hours straight after that. Damn pregnancy hormones. And to top it all off, I peed my pants when I was laughing/crying so hard at my parents house. Again, damn pregnancy.

I hope y'all got a chuckle out of this as much as I do remembering it now almost 8 years later.
