Can't remember where I left my Sense of Humour

I've always had a weird sense of humour. I can find the funny side of anything and so can my DH. Its what attracted me to him years ago. (he thinks it was his dashing looks ha) We tease and laugh at each other constantly. Banter starts and then it just keeps feeding. Its got me out of sticky situations too.

However, I've lost my sense of humour over the last few days. I've looked for it everywhere.....under the bed, in the fridge (that's usually where lost things are found in this house) and in the bits and bobs drawer but alas all I can find is my tiny violin and the noise of that is irritating the hell out me

I need my Sense of Humour back please. I've tried to send a message to St Anthony he the guy of lost things but hes self isolating and knows that I'm not a believer so no luck there then. I need it back. If anyone else has borrowed it please return to its loving owner ASAP
Anyone else lost theirs?

Ok had a good clear out of all those tiny violins . I was going to make a fire in the garden and have a BBQ like so many seem to be doing but decided to facetime Gcs. Littlest one says I've missed you sooooo much nan and when this virus is over I'm going to pack my bag and go with mummy and......I could feel tears starting at the back of my eyes
and and and.....I waited ........
go to my favourite swimming pool and go on the big slide all on my own. What do you think of that

Chuckle muscle restored....... thank goodness for children wink
Music is on it's a nice day enjoying sunshine sunshine

Try "The Golden Girls" on Channel 5 during the day. I record it and watch in the evenings. The facial expressions are a hoot. Also a daily laugh with Matt cartoons.

May7 Although your sense of humour may have done a runner - I'm sure it will come back. It is good to hear that I'm not the only one to have a weird sense of humour. In fact it nearly got me into trouble when I worked as a secretary for a consultant at a hospital. My colleagues would hear me, hysterical with laughter and wouldn't have the foggiest idea why. I saw the funny side of things and also of bad situations. I remember saying to my boss, after a call received about a patient's death, 'another one bites the dust'! There were lots of other occasions; and even after having left my job - I've still got that sense of humour. Hubby sometimes finds me in tears with laughter over something that he can't quite fathom. But then he is Dutch so it is a bit more difficult. But having said that - we had a bet, when we first got together, who had the worst sense of humour. I think I've won! But it is nice to share that love of humour.

So... your sense of humour has done a runner, Gone with the Wind... or you've had a sense of humour failure and need to jump start it. I hope you can find it and reel it back in, even if it comes back screaming and shouting! shamrock

Mine pops in and out.(Sense of humour I mean) Some days I cannot raise a smile and nothing seems funny. Sometimes I wake up and I feel ok. The last laugh I had was on here with the thread of embarrassing moments.

It sounds like your giggle pin has become dislodged. Try loud belly laughing for 3 mins. Nice and loud. That may help it lodge back into place. 👍🏻 Laughter therapy it’s called. No charge. 😉

Get St Anthony on the job he always finds lost things, when he has finished looking for mine I will ask him to find yours May7,sending hugs.

katynana Sat 30-May-20 16:05:27

SOH still with me but my MOJO went AWOL a few days ago. Probably gone off to socialise, safely, with all the missing SOHs. Please notify me if you see it anywhere, I do miss it.

Hello May7I've kept my sense of humour by thinking of Donald Trump. If I didn't laugh I'd cry 😂🤣😂🤣😭

Molly10 Sat 30-May-20 14:13:02

May7, you really haven't lost it, certainly not the written humour anyway as you had me laughing with your witty prose.

The big humour is sheltering under the corona bush till a more appropriate time. You will feel that humour hug very soon as it comes out slowly from lockdown. flowers

Thank you, Grammaretto
That did make me smile smile

MerylStreep Sat 30-May-20 13:31:17

You certainly made me laugh 👏👏👏

Thought mine had gone off on an unofficial drive somewhere. Thank goodness found it had returned when watching Peter Kay's Car Share repeats. Also seems to comes to the surface again when watching Jane Godley's videos of Nicola Sturgeon at her daily briefing.

I thought i had lost my sense of humour until I got undressed last night in front of my full length mirror - WHOA! Who the hell has invaded my body and given me bits of fat, boobs to tie in a knot, knees like rugby balls ( I think rugby balls are better shaped!), bingo wings that bats would be proud of, hair that looks like dry grass (at least dry grass can be eaten by animals), a bum that blocks the light from the sun, oh and lets not forget the moustache that Salvador Dali would be proud of. Some come on lets find this sense of humour. X smile

Have you looked down the back of the chair?
It is amazing what I have found down there and there always seems to be money so you could at least buy something with the cash.
Here's a lovely story by Margaret Mahy. I hope it will make you smile:

YouTube - Mock the Week, Would I Lie to You, 8 out of 18 Cats, QI, all highly recommended for a good laugh

Oldernewgranny Sat 30-May-20 12:20:24

My guess is that it’ll be with my husband’s. He’s turned into Victor Meldrew and can’t see the positive in anything, he constantly shouts at the tv whenever Coronavirus is mentioned and it’s him who’s making me depressed and humourless rather than the situation we’re in. Thank goodness for friends.

EEJit Sat 30-May-20 12:17:54

Have you tried your knicker drawer. That's where most of you ladies seem to out things.

cupcake1 Sat 30-May-20 11:30:56

Well your post made me laugh ! Thank you! 😂😂

Ladyleftfieldlover Sat 30-May-20 11:07:49

I giggled all the way through HIGNFY last night. Ian Hislop was so annoyed about the Cummings shenanigans. I can’t wait for next week’s Private Eye.

St Rita deals with lost causes too.

Skweek1 Sat 30-May-20 10:24:35

I think if you start looking for something else - maybe the tea spoons, or (as in my case) your get-up-and-go, there it will be, somewhere you've looked at least 20 times since breakfast, laughing at you. But my family say that I've never had a SOH, so maybe not the best person to help, even though most of the posts on this forum have really tickled me, so perhaps it's them?

Oldwoman70 Sat 30-May-20 10:22:51

lemongrove apologies if you came up with the idea first - what's that they say about great minds?
