Tommy and I boarded our flight ... we were on our way back home. He was carrying a box in his hand. It was a toy ... with blue 'fur'. It had eyes on it.
This special box could make people smile. When Tommy turned it on ... I would begin to laugh; become so tickled. The different laughs the box made ... would tickle anyone's funny bone. Anyone in hearing distance would begin smiling ... breaking out into a laugh.
Tommy was a little boy ... he got a kick out of unexpectedly turning on ... his laughing box!
We were looking out the window as we flew. I sat there in a world of my own ... I was thinking that if I didn't know better ... I wasn't really flying. Everything was so calm, quiet ... until ... oh no!
Tommy turned his laughing box on! I was trying to hide myself! Then ... I began to hear laughter ... everyone began laughing! The stewardess came to Tommy, smiling.
She asked me if he could go to the cockpit with her, show his laughing box to the pilot. I told her "sure"!
They walked away ... in a few minutes, what comes over the intercom? Laughter from the laughing box! People were laughing so hard ... I was, too!
Tommy had the best time talking to the pilot, and stewardess. They made him feel very special ... they loved his laughing box!
