We were sitting around the table eating dinner last night when the Dracenator shamelessly lets out a great big burp.

WHAT do you SAY?  I barked.

"Excuu-Bbuurrpppp..(hiccup) me!  BWAHAHAHAAA  HA haaa!"

I shot him the evil eye, along with his brother who was cackling like a goose on a caffeine high at the other end of the table. 

I continued to give them both the evil stare down until I looked at Charlie and saw the smirk on his face.  I then had to fight back the urge to bust out in full blown laughter myself because both boys were laughing so hard by this point that they were on the verge of tears.

Somebody has to be responsible for teaching those two little savages how to behave at a dinner table though and I was able to play it off by stopping with a small chuckle and then quickly focusing in on the fact that neither of them were wearing shirts at the table and demanding to know why.  

They were hot, of course. Burning up hot.  Ugh.

They found this whole ordeal so funny that I overheard  them re-playing the scene while they were in the bathroom supposed to be brushing their teeth this morning. 

I said, BURP!  and she said, WHAT do you say?!  and I said, ExcuuBurrpppp!!!!   BWA HA HAAAA!!!!!" 

He's most likely not going to let this one go for awhile because making his big brother laugh is like the bestest thing imaginable in his 7 year old world. 

Laughter is one of life's greatest simple pleasures, isn't it?  At any age.  

I read somewhere recently that the average child laughs up to 300 times a day while the average adult only laughs 10-15. 

How sad is that?   

Laughter is, in my book, the absolute best cure-all medicine for all of life's little downers.
