Choose to Laugh
Do you choose to take humor personally, get upset by it, or overreact? Healthy humor (not angry, sarcastic, or hurtful humor) is simply an exaggeration of real life. That's what makes it funny. For example, when Red Skelton reportedly said, I haven't spoken to my wife for several months--I hate to interrupt her, that's just an exaggeration of what often happens in life. Studies have shown that the average male speaks about 12,000 words a day while the average female speaks about 50,000 words. So laugh.
