My pal Evan is an advertising writer. Lately he's been working on some radio spots that require him to interview past customers and record their commentary about their varying experiences. A lot of times people laugh, and this gets recorded too. In the editing and piecing together of well-polished spots, the laughter has to be separated to equalize. And Evan sends me clips of different laughter. Small snivels. Loud bursts. Cackles. High- pitched weezing. Bellows. They are all great.

I picture each laughter captured in little, glass jars to be let out when it's time. They take up different amounts of space, have different shapes, colors, movements...

I think my laughter would be bright red and twirl around in a small circle and then burst like a firecracker.

What would your laugh look like?
