I've learned that laughing with sutures in your mouth is perhaps not the best thing that one can do. I discovered this while ubby was reading Terry Pratchett's A Hat Full of Sky to me last night. Pratchett is a very funny writer who crafts great characters and great stories. I've been enjoying his tales since high school.
Last night every giggle and guffaw came with a wince. It's hard to laugh without moving your face. Good thing I had an ice pack handy. The antics of the Wee Free men (also known as the Nac Mac Feegle), "the rowdiest, toughest, smelliest bunch of fairies ever," had me in...stitches (sorry, couldn't resist).
