Some relatives were visiting with their kids, and the kids were laughing hysterically about something.
My sister and I reminisced about funny stuff that happened when we were kids.
One episode has stuck with me. I will never forget it. It was the hardest I have ever laughed.
There was a neighbor kid named Bob who was insanely funny. He was like a living cartoon character. He was never not being goofy.
His parents were very strict, and if they got angry at him, he would make goofy faces and sounds, and his parents would soon be laughing.
One night (we were 10 years old at the time) Bob and I were walking to a store to buy some candy. It was snowing, and we were making snowballs and
throwing them at trees and streetlight poles. We noticed Bob's older brother and a friend walking up ahead. They were also going to the store. Bob
made a snowball, ran up behind them and threw it, hitting his brother's friend in he back. They both turned, and his brother yelled "Get him!" They
were shouting "We're gonna kill you."
Bob took off running and immediately slipped and fell. He got up and took off again, with his pursuers right behind him.
He turned and started running down a hill, and he was doing this loud, crazy screaming and shrieking. I was already laughing.
As he was running down the hill, his pants fell down and he tumbled head over heals. His brother and the friend were laughing so hard
that they were no longer mad at him.
I began laughing so hysterically that I just lost control of my body. I collapsed in the snow. I would just about regain my 'faculties', then I
would have another spasm of laughter. My brain must have been releasing tons of endorphines! I laughed uncontrollably for about
fifteen minutes. The next day, my sides ached when I inhaled. I think my entire rib cage area was sore!
To this day, I crack up when I remember that scene with Bob!
