Some Things About Giggling

Written for:  dVerse:  Quadrille #27  (posted by whimsygizmo)

For today’s Q44, I would like you to giggle.

Give it a good loud verb voice. Or allow it its noun-dom. Add a couple of letters and turn it into an adjective or adverb: giggling, giggly.

Write us a silly poem, like Shel Silverstein:


Tee-hee, hah-hah, ho-ho
Language of Giggle–same
wherever you go.

Ever try to suppress a giggle
when you know timing is wrong?
Give your fingers and toes a wiggle.

I hate being tickled
except pink with joy.
Love the word ‘pickle.’

    “Language of Giggle-same” – I LOVE this. I think I might be fluent in it, actually. So happy to be in such good company. 🙂

    I imagine suppressing a giggle would be hard to do especially if one knew one shouldn’t giggle at that time.

    Suppressing giggles is difficult and finally burst forth with a splurt!
