Hungry, I pulled a bagel from the freezer at work, popping it in the toaster to thaw it. Then, caught up in the busy-ness that comprises an ordinary day at work, the bagel was left to sit...for hours. By the time I got back to it, the bagel was pretty tough. With some effort, I ripped a bite-size piece off and rolled it around in my mouth.
"This bagel is tough enough to kill a blender," I commented to my co-worker.
I felt secretly proud of my creative description, and I waited for my co-worker's response.
To my delight, I heard her peal of laughter ring out. It's great to have someone who can make you laugh, but it is also great to have someone whom you can make laugh. Laughter should go both ways.
It is fun to have someone who appreciates your humor. :)
