I’ve been sitting on this hilarious “green” song in my local dialect that never fails to put a grin on my face irrespective of when or where I am. And due to its green nature and that the terms require a considerable degree of fluency to fully comprehend it in full context, I cannot just share it to anyone and so I was condemned to laugh alone for a while.
One weekend while both me and my wife are doing the laundry, I remembered the song again. But this time, instead of keeping it to myself, I sang that hilarious part of the lyrics out loud followed by a hearty laugh until it brought me to tears.
♪ ♫ Nakamagmaga,
Natikagan sa ♫ ♪
My wife let out a belly laugh followed by a silent one as she hit me twice with her towel while her knees totally lost control as she squatted on the ground.
While our shoulders were still shaking, I felt relieved that I finally found someone to share with the hilarious song and laugh with much gusto.
“Thank you,” I told her in the middle of my chuckles “thank you for laughing out loud with me!”
What I’ve learned in that moment is, given the right timing, a green joke minus the sexual innuendos and overtones expressing repressed urges can give a clean humor that can make you laugh with your significant other. And, of all people you can laugh out loud with, isn’t it cool that you’re doing it with your special someone?
And in our case, a good hearty laugh is always equivalent to a good quality time with each other.
And that, is not a joke my friend 🙂
