So I’m thinking of becoming a laughter therapist. I envision people coming to me with their problems, and then paying me to laugh with them about stuff. Of course, it wouldn’t work if my client didn’t bring a sense of humor with her. I’d have to put that in the fine print, I guess – “This laughter therapist takes no responsibility for being unable to make people laugh who have no sense of humor.”
I suppose there are some things it’d be really hard to laugh about. Death and mass destruction are hard ones. But my clients and I could laugh together about job stress and bills and Big Business and Fox News and things lost and friendships ended and depression and failure. There’s a lot of great material to work with there.
What do you think I should charge for this kind of service?
