“Feathers filled the small room. Our laughter kept the feathers in the air. I thought about birds. Could they fly if there wasn’t someone, somewhere, laughing?” – Jonathan Safran Foer

My mom started blasting old, hilariously dramatic Bollywood songs this morning and doing equally hilarious, awkward, choppy dance moves to it while wiggling around like a bendy no-bones person. I couldn’t help bursting out in laughter and snorting a little coffee.

Yes, it’s unnervingly-close-to-Fri-day. But wherever you are today, don’t forget to laugh. Birds need our help staying airborne, after all.
