    What is fun to you?

    Is it an emotion or feeling?
    What do you feel when you experience "Fun"?
    How do you know when you are having "Fun"?

    Do some of you lack the ability to experience this?

    I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have fun evaluating fun on the terms that you are requesting.

    Fun to me is reaching an elevated level from the norm that is well.... Fun. An experience that takes us someplace we have never been before or makes us remember something or somebody. A few years ago I was not having much fun but now I am thankfully.


    Fun noun
    something that provides mirth or amusement: A picnic would be fun.

    But then again I know people who are no walk in the park or a day at the beach at a picnic.

    That's my point. Define what fun is to you.

    This may seem like a really stupid question, but how do you know you had "fun"?

    Was it just the happy memories, joy and happiness, or is it some other feeling?

    There is almost always a feeling of glee, mirth or giddy-ness that is unlike other things in life that are a buzz-kill.

    Fun for me is smiling until my face hurts!

    Bubbling over, full of energy, laughing, happiness, skipping, hopping, being playful, bouncy, singing, generally acting silly and looking back on those moments and smiling just remembering the feeling of exhilaration from that day and knowing all of those things make FUN to me!

    Almost the same for me! I also enjoy long walks in the countryside, games (of all types) and keeping fit. Oh, and I love cake. :smile:
