Sometimes the only sense you can make out of life is a sense of humour.

To make sense of something
To understand something that is complicated or difficult.

The ability to understand or judge something. Some very common expressions are –

  • A sense of humour (= the ability to find things funny or make people laugh).
  • A (good) sense of direction (= the ability to find the way to a place easily).
  • A sense of rhythm (= the ability to move in time to a fixed beat).
  • A sense of timing (= the skill of doing something at exactly the right time).
  • Dress sense (= to know which clothes look attractive).
  • Road sense (= the ability to drive or walk carefully and safely through traffic).
  • Common sense (= the ability to make good judgments and behave in a practical and sensible way).
