The first charakter 失 can be translated as “loss”, while the second one 笑 is the one for laughter, so it really is “losing laughter”, which describes having a fit of laughter perfectly. I admire people who can lose themselves in laughter so completely. They usually have also a laugh that is very contagious.
I don’t know about you, but I definitely laugh not often enough, which I was once again reminded of while reading (and reblogging) the post from OM “Nine Reasons being Asian is Awesome“. I really needed a laugh and yet I did’t even realize it.
