Asked to name the things I love about Adrian, his laugh would land near the top of that list. It seems a few days stay in a hospital bed hasn’t put a damper on his sense of humor at all.
The night before last Adrian and I had spent the better part of the night awake, watching one another not sleep. The nurse came in around 4 am and remarked that he was up bright and early. I sarcastically responded, “Yeah, great” and as if on cue, Adrian let out a great belly laugh.
This, of course, made the nurse laugh and Adrian immediately took note. He forced another loud laugh and watched expectantly for her reaction. She didn’t disappoint and the whole affair left us all in giggles.
This morning Adrian woke up laughing. I watched him as he slept. One moment he was snoring and the next he was chuckling to himself, even before he’d opened his eyes. As is often the case, we’ll likely never know the entertaining dream or thought that so amused him. But I’m not so sure I really want to know. The chuckles continued as he opened his eyes, glanced over at me …and laughed all the more heartily. LOL
