He noticed his friend, Jeff with a big frown on his face.
"What's the matter?" Pete asked.
The young boy responded quickly,
"I'm waiting for someone to make me laugh."
Pete's eyes lit up.
He pulled out his little joke book and proceeded
to tell his friend the funniest joke he ever heard.
But Jeff's facial expression never changed.
Buddy came along and told his friend an amusing story.
But once again Jeff had the same frown on his face.
Cathy walked toward Jeff and started to giggle.
"What's so funny?" Jeff asked.
Cathy ignored him and continued to chuckle.
Pete and Buddy began to laugh too.
Jeff asked them again what is so funny?
The rest of the class joined in and laughed.
Jeff was persistent, he asked again what is so funny?
Cathy and the rest of the class paid no attention to him.
They laughed, and laughed and laughed.
Jeff's mood changed immediately.
He joined in with his own comical laugh.
The laughter continued until the school bell rang.
Jeff pulled Cathy aside.
"You never told me what was so funny?"
Cathy grinned back at him and answered,
"I made you laugh, didn't I?"
