My mother was such a serious person. Even when she felt happy her face was immobile, sunken into the kind of grimness your average person would have prior to a job interview. But when something tickled her as funny she positively howled, slapping her hand up and down almost involuntarily and could barely breath for laughing. Fat tears would roll down her newly pinked cheeks and it would be several minutes before it subsided. Only then could she tell us what she had found so amusing, and we never got the joke, not even once. But in those moments of her laughter the temperature in the house rose a couple of degrees and I couldn't help but stifle a grin.

From the cow shed there came the most high pitched scream and we all dropped the chore we had been assigned and ran hell-for-leather in it's direction. When we got there Dirk was lying on his back covered from head to toe in cow excrement, semi dangling by his left leg that was caught in the winch rope. He stopped flailing when we entered and took on such an indignant face that you'd have to have a heart of stone not to laugh. There was no pretence of sympathy and no mad rush to detangle him. Our laughter did not build softly but exploded as good as TNT, filling the dusty air and spilling out into the early morning sunshine.

She always said she hated her laugh, but every time I hear her giggling through her nose, snorting adorably, I fell a little more in love with her.
She giggled, the sound like a brook flowing merrily through a well-lit wood.
Her laugh was like a waterfall.
She sounded like she had something in her throat as she laughed. It was strained, verging on the sound of someone choking, and obviously fake.
Her laugh, loud and throaty, didn't seem to fit her.
He had a laugh like glass shattering: sharp, brief, and sudden, crashing to a halt.
He chuckled slowly and warmly, reminding me of honey.
He had a crooked little laugh to match his crooked little smile--and his crooked little mind.
His laugh was like thunder; it was a low, rumbling boom.
