What kind of amusement? I think these term can branch off into different “amusements”. First amusement: its amusing to be entertained by others; i.e. comedians, people falling from their bikes, dumb questions in very serious environment, going to an exhibition 5 minutes before they close, etc. I think to be amused is to be entertained and being able to laugh so anything can be amusing if it is viewed out of its original context.

La vie en General. life in general, there is always a surprise at the corner of the street, but you have to look for the first one, then you get the others. Keep on amusing yourself and you will amuse and be amused, by tiny details. Just writting this is amusing.

I’ll be right back with SOMEthing amusing (if I can just stop giggling at this dogface snoring at my feet…).

Finding out that a co-worker thought that every chicken egg was a baby chick, and was shocked to learn that chickens lay eggs unfertilized. Telling that story to different co-worker, and finding out that he has been unwittingly fed fertilized eggs by his partner for years and never knew it, and is visibly grossed out.

Freshmen Boys (such a mixture of immature goof balls and young men……..very funny to observe).

I’m amused by watching encounters between small children and animals–there’s something comical and genuine about those interactions, usually infused with curiosity and sheer delight, between innocent creatures who don’t know quite what to make of each other.
Ken
 

People falling down. It never ceases to amuse me. Not that I’m so evil that I would actually cause this to happen…but when it happens on its own, I can’t help finding hilarity in it.
Bubble wrap, drunk people, and reality tv. The latter two go hand-in-hand.
Myself.

Conversation ONE:

Isabella (seven years old) getting ready for bed.
Isabella: “Mommy, do spirits have spirits?”
My response: “Yes, they do.”
Isabella: “Okay. I was just trying to figure it out.”

Conversation TWO:

Out of the blue, two days ago, Sophia (four years old) stopped while brushing her teeth to ask me a question:
Sophia: “Mommy, why did God make all those planets but only put people on Mother Earth? What are all of the other planets doing?”
My response: “Hmmm. Good Question.”
Sophia (impatient): “Mommy, you told me that every thing God made has a purpose. Why aren’t there people on the other planets? What are those planets doing?”
My response: “I don’t know. But I know God knows.”
Sophia, after a pause: “That’s what I was thinking.”
