A Boston physician tells of the case of a ten-year-old boy, who, by reason of an attack of fever, became deaf. The physician could afford the lad but little relief, so the boy applied himself to the task of learning the deaf-and-dumb alphabet. The other members of his family, too, acquired a working knowledge of the alphabet, in order that they might converse with the unfortunate youngster.
During the course of the next few months, however, Tommy's hearing suddenly returned to him, assisted no doubt by a slight operation performed by the physician.
Every one was, of course, delighted, particularly the boy's mother, who one day exclaimed:
"Oh, Tommy, isn't it delightful to talk to and hear us again?"
"Yes," assented Tommy, but with a degree of hesitation; "but here we've all learned the sign language, and we can't find any more use for it!"
Humor offers us healthy mentality. Jokes makes people more flexible when they are emotional. Laughter therapy really works for mental illness. It is so fortunate when we get people around us who has good sense of humor, cause they make us laughing. We don’t need to tell or listen jokes all the day long. We can talk with others in a jolly mood and thus the words could be funnier to the listeners. Making people to laugh is a hard job. But if we try with a great intention in our heart it wouldn’t be hard enough, because who doesn’t want to make his or her near and dear ones to see happy. Only then life can be even more beautiful to us, undoubtedly.
