However, a stranger tickling you is not considered funny because there is nothing benign about that situation. It elucidates why we find humor in puns which are violations of linguistic norms that pose no threat to us.

An instance of this is when a comedian insults a member of the audience during a performance. The rest of the audience will laugh because while insulting the audience is a violation of presentational norms, they themselves are not being embarrassed as a result of this violation and therefore find it benign.

For example, I will refuse under any circumstances share the names of the following people, but when I was in gym my friend and I over-heard them talking bad about me. This really brought down my self-esteem, but I act like nothing is wrong around her. Everytime I 'm away from her, I regret not
While others may smoothly play off stubbing their toe against a stone, my eyes get watery and my face gets really hot whenever that happens to me. If I am walking with a friend then my immediate reaction tends to be to squeeze their arm. Due to my low self-esteem I find it hard to relate to others. My fear of meeting new people and talking to people means that I do not meet many people. Due to my fear of embarrassment, I feel almost relieved after a person leaves my company each time because the longer they are around me then the greater the odds of me embarrassing myself.
When you barefoot run the ball of your foot hits the ground first and quickly starts to send signals to both your spinal cord and brain. If you ripe away this impact by the cushioning in your shoes you make a fool of your brain and spinal cord by making them both underestimate the
It was fun even though we always didn’t land on our feet. Because we sometimes landed on our knees or butts our mom told us to stop, as we could get injured. Despite our mother 's warnings I and my brother still did it.I never wanted to stop because I loved how the air felt on my skin when I continuously swung back and forth and when I jumped off.

Then, looking back at the presentation, I saw a little nervousness in me. As well, as my eye contact could’ve been better. I pause and stutter a couple times.
It was for me to be more coordinated on the floor, so I wouldn 't fall on the ground or on someone else 's feet. My first plan was to do it at anytime of the day. It could 've been before I go to bed, after football practice, before school, or when I was bored and wasn 't doing anything at all. I would do this for about ten minutes or maybe even more.

I was excited to be working that summer because I would finally have my own money and could save for school with no help from my parents. I felt proud of myself because I was taking a small step into the real world. Although I was very happy, I was also concerned.
