Link to the full film below if you can take the punishment. The problem scene with my dad is about eight minutes in. You will notice there is no giggling. I did it!

Awwww! Your uncontrollable tee hee’s are very endearing. I was just writing yesterday about my sometimes “inappropriate affect” not often, but has appeared in overwhelming emotional situations. Upturned mouth when I should be somber, trembling rib cage about to bust when I should be delivering sad news. It’s like my brain short circuits and can’t locate the proper response. Needless to say, this is why I’m NOT an actor.🤣 Well done you, for giving your second father a good laugh and also delivering a performance that eventually let your director call it a wrap.

I too have picked more daisies than I wish to admit. If only we could go back and tell those younger selves to look up and see all the opportunities around us.

While giggling uncontrollably may have left you feeling bad about yourself for a moment, try walking a mile in my shoes. I played right field for three whole seasons.

I felt your pain, Adam; I used to get uncontrollable giggles very regularly in my teens, mostly, of course, in the worst possible moments! Glad you managed it, (I tried to check out the link but it's not available here in England.)
