Why all those chuckles?

Email

To the editor:

Those chuckles are everywhere: at a table, in a store, by a register, near a sink, on a beach, at a reunion. They’re everywhere you look and listen.

What’s a chuckle? It’s that quick response to a remark, that unexpected outburst, that utterance that’s a bit disruptive, sometimes noisy. It’s not to be confused with a genuine laugh, in response to a joke.
