Recipe for Fun

I heard today about a great game that children play.  It is called ‘GiggleBelly’ or ‘Ha-Ha’ and apparently a lot of kids learn it at camp.  You lie on the floor and each person puts her head on the next person’s belly.  Then someone starts by saying, "Ha."  Then the next person says, "Ha-ha."  Then the next person says, "Ha, ha, ha."  And so on.  Soon everyone is laughing hysterically. 

This sounds like a lot of fun.  Perhaps we could modify this for an adult Recipe for Fun and instead we could just start laughing outloud even if it is forced at first.  We just all keep laughing and watching each other and soon we find ourseves laughing for real.  I have heard this is what they do in Laughing Yoga which is a new rage sweeping the world.  Sounds like fun to me!  What do you think?
