IELTS Speaking Cue Card Answer | Something that made you laugh a lot

Alright, so something funny happened just the other day when I was visiting my brother. He and his wife have a little girl, my niece, who’s five years old and she’s really smart and inquisitive.

Anyway, it was the weekend and we had been having lunch together and after lunch my niece was sitting watching a movie in her tablet, and after a while we noticed that her dog was sitting in front of her and seemed to be watching her. Her dog is really cute, it’s a grey and white husky and they love playing together.

So it appeared that the dog was watching her watch the movie and when she would move her head to one side or peer at the screen her dog would imitate her and do the same – it was really strange at first and then we realized how funny it was.

We all sat watching this for about five minutes and we were all quietly laughing at just how funny it was – her head would move to the right – and the dog’s head would follow, her head would come up a bit, and so would the dog’s, and it went on and on like this. It was almost as if there was some kind of connection between them.

The funniest thing was that she was so interested in watching the movie that she had no idea what her dog was doing – it was hilarious.
You had to see it to believe it – I’ve never seen anything like it before.

Follow up question:
What kinds of things normally make you laugh a lot.

I guess the normal things, when someone does something funny or tells a funny joke. Funny scenes in TV shows or movies and unexpected stuff like the incident with my niece and her dog.
