The Way To Amanda's Heart Is Through Her Giggles

Humor is sexy. So many of my friends went for the “bad boys”, but I've always went for the ones who made me laugh. As I mused over this week's therealljidol topic, Cracking Up, it occurred to me that seven out of ten boyfriends were chosen because of humor. (Two, desperation, and one was a dare for the both of us.) I couldn't even tell you how many of my unrequited loves were due to their sense of humor, but far more than for looks or skill, I can tell you that.

I remember my first real boyfriend and the exact moment I realized I liked him as more than a friend. We rode the bus together, and I got on that morning crying over something my stepfather had done. He immediately jumped up and moved seats, to sit across from me and make me laugh. I still consider it one of the sweetest things a man has ever done for me.

My husband has made me laugh every single day we've been together. Even before we were dating, his laugh was my favorite thing about him. And I know we make some darn cute babies, but it's how we all laugh together that really makes me love my family.

Kids are even better than funny men, in my opinion, because they're not trying to be funny. Their funny is the purest form of it. To me, nothing is better than Eden declaring that Vicks VapoRub smells like volcano, or Ivy coming in from the snow and declaring, “Brr! I'm frozen salad!” I don't even think I would have kept our cat Cinder if she didn't make me laugh every now and then.

So on the topic of humor, it really just boils down to one thing for me:

Smile more often. It makes you look beautiful.
