    Smile that's how it is

    Are the following sentences acceptable?

    (1) Jilly heard someone burst into giggle behind the sofa.
    (2) So she realized that's how it was.

    Re: that's how it is

    Hi Ashiuhto

    As a NES, but not a teacher:

    1. I would have said "a giggle" or "giggles".
    2. I would be happy, as a NES, with the text as written.

    Hope this helps
