Day 27 – Laughback

This is another fascinating word curtesy of the English language.

There is such a word that describes the moment when a person starts to laugh at something that happened in a past moment, but they are just now realizing that it was funny. That’s what that word means.

Personally, if I am going to laugh at someone or at something, I am either going to do it in the moment or not at all. But apparently it is common for people to randomly start laughing about something that happened yesterday.

To me, that is funny in itself.

So for those of you that have been reading these posts up to date, you will remember when the tree in my uncle’s yard was taken down (rest in peace little tree).

During this time though, there were several incidents. For one, I was attacked by several branches. My brother (bless his soul) was hit in the crotch and my Aunt was hit on the head. At the time, these things hurt. But now that I think about it, they were kind of funny. So I suppose that’s what people mean when they use this word.

It was a laughback moment.

So thank you English for having such stupid words and thank you to humanity for using them 🙂
