I just lol’d again and when I heard that laugh echo back, I realized how weird it feels to laugh out loud when I’m the only one in the room.
Think about it, do you laugh out loud when you’re alone watching a movie or TV or even reading a book?
A long time ago, someone mentioned to me how weird it is to laugh out loud at a show or movie when you’re watching alone. I’d never really thought about it before. But, now I think about it every time I laugh out loud at one of my two favorite shows (Modern Family and Happy Endings).
I can’t hold it in. I can’t help but laugh out loud. Do I feel a little weird? Yes. Is this why they used to film before a live studio audience? Maybe. Do I still feel crazy? Sure.
I googled “laughing at a movie alone” and ended up on Psychforums.com under schizoid personality disorders where all these people seemed to think it’s pretty normal to laugh alone. I imagine a bunch of people in straight jackets laughing at the wall. Is that how I look? Crap.
