I don't have a car, so I either walk, ride my bike, or take public transit. I thoroughly enjoy the first two, the last one, not so much. But it becomes tolerable with the aid of a good book.
A couple of months ago, Beloved Husband and I discovered Christopher Moore's books, and they have become my favorite distraction from the tedium of waiting for the bus. They're irreverent. They're entertaining. And they are the only books I've ever read that regularly make me laugh out loud.
When you start laughing for no apparent reason on the bus, people get worried. They shoot you a glance, curious but not wanting to make eye contact. They fidget, looking around for another open seat. And those poor people who are in the window seat, penned in by the crazy laughing woman? They ooze up against the window, as if hoping the glass might suddenly release them from their hell.
And that gets the giggles going all over again.
What's your favorite source of humor?
