MJ blathers

dark poet who loves to laugh


mj has had a loud chuckle and louder laugh since childhood. So many times i wanted to hide under my school desk when i had laughed out loud. Without laughter i am not sure i could live. I know laughter is what cemented my love affair with my husband Earl. In fact, as he lay dying, he awoke for just a few minutes and knew who i was. He let me feed him a few spoonfuls of soup and two of Jell-O. When i asked if there was anything else he might like, he whispered, “apple pie.” I had none, but i did have apple sauce, so i asked, “How about crustless apple pie?” He laughed aloud, then soon slipped into a coma from which he didn’t awake.
