1High-pitched laugh


1[on a memory of getting his first laugh] I was three and it was during my younger sister's christening and I was lifted up to stand on a chair so I could see. I looked out at the congregation of about thirty or forty people, bu to me it seemed like thousands. And I started to do little dances on the chair and pull faces and turn around under my legs - and everyone burst out laughing. Even the vicar was laughing. And I can vividly remember something clicked and thinking, This feels amazing!
2There's nothing nicer than getting a round of applause for turning up for work, It's amazing! You start work and people clap. Do you know what I mean? And then they stand up and clap at the end.
