Past You Said It!
Eleven-year-old Jordan asked this question: "What is one thing that makes you laugh every time?"
These girls shared their thoughts:
I always laugh when my dog Bella rushes into my room in the morning, jumps on my bed, and starts licking me all over (with her tail wagging like crazy, of course). After she calms down, we snuggle in my bed. Bella is my favorite fuzzy alarm clock!

The world splendiferous definitely makes me giggle! Extra-long words always crack me up.
–Sachie, age 10, Japan
Even when I'm grumpy, my dad can make me laugh until I cry. He's goofy and funny, and I'm proud to call him my dad.
–Rose, age 12, California
One thing that always makes me laugh is when my two best friends call me Squiggly Worm. I can't even remember how I got that nickname, but it makes me grin every time I hear it.
–Allison, age 10, Missouri
The thing that makes me laugh is my fuzzy orange cat, Harry, getting the hiccups—which happens almost every day.
–Sasha, age 9, Canada
My family and I go camping every summer, and when we do, my dad loves to play pranks on my sister and me. We decided to get him back last year, so we put a huge plastic spider on his pillow. He screamed and ran right out of the tent! My whole family still cracks up about that incident.
–Aria, age 12, Rhode Island
There's a home video of me as a baby that always makes me laugh. It was the first time I had eaten peas, and I made the funniest face. Oh, and I still don't like peas.
–Regan, age 10, Missouri
Every time my friend and I have a sleepover, we burst into uncontrollable laughter for no reason. We don't see each other a lot, and when we do, we end up laughing just because we're happy to be together.
–Beth, age 12, California
One day at lunch, my friend had an orange. As she was peeling it, she said, "No hard peelings!" Just thinking about that joke makes me giggle.
–An American Girl fan, age 9, Oklahoma
Seeing a hippo makes me laugh, even if it's just a stuffed animal or a picture. Hippos are just so adorable, and they always cheer me up.
–Neekoo, age 10, Maryland
My friend has a chinchilla, and she came up with a funny song to sing to him. She sings it in a silly, squeaky voice, too. It makes me laugh so hard.
–Melina, age 10, Ohio
My mom and I are super silly together, and we like to make up funny dances. Then we both burst into nonstop laughter. Whenever I'm feeling down, my mom can lift my spirits by performing a hilarious dance move.
–Corinne, age 13, Virginia
One person who never fails to make me laugh is my best friend. I can always count on her to have me in fits of giggles, whether it's because she tells a funny joke or does nothing in particular. In fact, all it takes is one look at each other and we start giggling.
