Imagine someone turns to you, glares into your eyes, and then exclaims, “Pig!”
How would you react?
Now imagine that person is a 3 year old boy,
with a vivid imagination and loads of joy and spontaneity.
He turns to you, glares into your eyes awhile, then out of the blue exclaims, "Pig!"
I reacted by laughing,
and he joined me.
We stopped, continued eating our lunch, and ignored the questioning look of his mom. We had been enacting the story of "The 3 Little Pigs," taking turns from time to time as he'd announce, "I'm the big bad wolf, you be the pigs." Or, "I'm the pigs, you be the big bad wolf." I thought the game was done hours ago...
I then looked him in the eyes, silently, smiling. After a bit, I softly and slowly said, "P....IG!"
We giggled and laughed for about 5 minutes.
This picture of him from about 6 months ago inspired me to share this little story today.
How do you create giggles, and with who?
