30 Days of Heinlein - Day 24

I've found out why people laugh. They laugh because it hurts so much… because it's the only thing that'll make it stop hurting. - Stranger in a Strange Land

My take - Life can be an enjoyable, wonderful experience.  A lot of it is an irritating pain in the butt. Some of it is excruciatingly painful.  We laugh, play, sing, and do whatever it is we do to let the pressure valve in our soul open up so that we can let some of that pain go.  Maybe it's shooting electronic Nazi's, or a little recoil therapy, or playing an instrument, or laughing until your ribs hurt, but we all need something.  The cost of not letting it out is damage to your psyche and your soul.
