My response to the Daily Prompt titled Laughter.
They say laughter is the best medicine. My question is, the best medicine for what?
Different illnesses require different medicine. I don’t see how laughter would help with the issues of broken ribs. A collapsed lung. An asthma attack. Cardiac arrest. A broken leg. A rash. A cut. Herpes. The list goes on really.
So what is laughter the best medicine for? Simple painkillers seem like they would help with more of those issues than laughter.
