Private jokes

They’re horrible when you’re not a part of them, and you can only smile awkwardly while others laugh uproariously at something that didn’t sound at all funny to you.

But when you’ve spent enough time working or socialising in the company of someone (or a group of people), and those in-jokes develop naturally without you even realising, it can be a really nice feeling. Knowing that you can say something that would make no sense to anyone else, yet which is guaranteed to make present company laugh, makes you feel connected and understood. You’re part of something.

It just makes me happy.
