Mabel Laughs

I forget now exactly what elaborate complicated story I was telling on Friday afternoon. What I know is that it made Mabel laugh, and the joke kept running as the camera crept closer. There is never any sure formula for gaining Mabel's laughter. The earning of it always feels like a startling and somehow undeserved reward, because nobody can predict at any given moment what will or will not work the magic.
