On this hump day, let’s chat about something fun: What has made you laugh lately?
First up, Matt Buechele, every mom’s secret Instagram crush, recently posted a hilarious reel about Airbnbs, including how elaborate the check-out chores are becoming. (“What is our arrangement? Do I work for you?”)
Also, all of Hunter Harris’s hilarious newsletter, especially this cultural observation: “I don’t know if you’ve noticed but the vibes are… sincerely off lately. Everything feels very Annette Bening staring in to space in the bathtub in 20th Century Women. Very much Meryl Streep screaming at the dinner table in Big Little Lies. I would even go so far as to say Natalie Portman asking Barbara Hershey ‘What career?’ in Black Swan.”
Seeing this photo, which we took earlier this summer. Parenting! Just like I pictured!
Finally, my cousin recently asked my sweet grandmother how old she was. “I’m 42,” she answered, confidently. “No, Mummy, you’re 92,” my aunt corrected. My grandmother laughed: “Oh, gosh, am I really?!” The best, always young at heart.
What has made you smile lately? Movies? Friends? Kids? Share below…
P.S. Funny comedy scenes in movies, and what makes your children laugh?

I’m not a librarian, but I play one on the Internet. With this blog, I hope to share my experiences with libraries and librarianship.

I love reading, writing and surfing. I am happiest by the water, with a good book in my hands.
I’ve always loved reading books and writing ever since I was a kid. I have always had a passion for the ocean, and I am happiest when I am near the water.
