“Playful arguments would become fits of uncontrollable laughter, and, like magic, that experience would be crystallized into a private joke, and the private joke would get boiled down to a simple phrase, which became a souvenir of the entire experience. For years to come, the phrase alone could uncork hours of renewed laughter. And as everyone knows, the best kind of laughter is laughter born of a shared memory.” –Mindy Kalin, “Some Thoughts on Weddings,” Why Not Me? How I love the work of Mindy Kaling! Everything she does. Agree, disagree? There is something special about an inside joke. The post Agree? “The Best Kind of Laughter Is Laughter Born of a Shared Memory.” appeared first on Gretchen Rubin.
