A Jar of Giggles

Author: Jeff Anderson

So, Nathan giggled first for Grandma and then Grandpa while we were visiting for Christmas. Now, he's giggling quite a bit more. Funny faces, funny sounds, and tickling can trigger baby giggles. He enjoys very much being laughed at as well.

It's amazing watching a little one grow up. Each little step is so subtle, but there is no way I would have been prepared for giggles when he was a newborn.

In Star Trek, Data found humor a very difficult concept to grasp. This is portrayed as something that is simply intuitively understood by humans. While I watch Nathan laugh, I don't see any logical or intuitive reason that he finds any particular thing we do funny-- especially since everything is essentially new anyway. Furthermore, it's baffling as to why Nathan has decided to produce a series of sounds interrupted by glottal stops. I do it, he does it, but I find myself as mystified as the ever curious fictional android.
