A thought...

I was randomly listening to music while doing my usual work at home when 'The World Ain't Slowing Down' by Ellis Paul started playing. I have heard this song several times in the past, but I never really paid heed to the words ever. For the first time a line hit me today. It goes like this:

"I found you sitting on a suitcase crying
Beneath my feet, I feel the rumble of a subway train
I laugh out loud
'cause it's the one thing I hadn't been trying..."

When was the last time I laughed out loud? I don't remember, except the times when I typed lol on chats. Do lol's mean anything at all! With the regular chores at home and outside I find my life going on like a machine. No matter how interesting I may want things to be I don't find myself laughing out loud, almost ever! Wondering is it just me? I don't see many people around me laughing out loud too! It isn't such a difficult thing, don't know why we don't try!

So very true!! Most of us will have a hard time remembering the last time we had laughed out loud.

The most i laughed in a long time was when i watched Delhi Bellly and for that alone, I'm grateful to AK.

Jokes apart, does this have something to do with the fact that we're all too busy bringing up kids and planning for our retirement? Were our parents equally glum when they were our age? Are we getting lonelier? I rem. relatives trooping into our house throughout the year, but my daughter is getting a completely diff. upbringing. It does bother me..

@ Joy - This is the 1st time you commented on any of my posts, though you have edited many! Thanks!

Maybe for Aanya and our big extended family you and I can make a beginning, what say? :)
