Food, dogs, gardening, books.
When we were in Beijng a few years ago facing a daunting street crossing with streams of cars, trucks, buses and bicycles, my husband, a very wry fellow, said, "Remember that picture of the guy and the tanks in Tianamen Square? Now I realize he was just crossing the street." No disrespect intended on his part, but it WAS a funny comment.
That is funny! Several days after Tiananmen, I was finally in a place where I could get a call through to my parents, who were frantic. (I'd sent a telegram, but it didn't get to them for a week.) First thing my dad did was tell me a couple Tiananmen jokes he'd heard. That was his way of dealing with the stress. My mother was appalled, but I found it very reassuring.
