I’ll do almost anything for the laugh. Embarrass myself? Sure. Tell funny stories of things that happened to me? Of course. Do something stupid to get the funny reaction? All the time. I love to get people to laugh. I am not trying to get attention, I am trying to get that person to laugh, chuckle… heck, even a small smile.
I know I get my sense of humor from my mom, and I am very grateful for that. She’s as warped as I am, and we can always get each other to chuckle. Now, she has more tact than I do. I will be the one laughing at a funeral, probably because I thought of something that happened in the past. And I will tell that story to anyone there willing to listen. Yes, probably not the most… correct thing to do at a funeral, but it is one of the best places to get that laugh.
I once heard a quote, it went something like “Always be able to laugh at yourself, cause if you don’t, you might miss the best joke ever told”. I try to live my life like that. I can find humor in nearly anything, and my humor may be badly timed, inappropriate, or just plain offensive, but to me, it’s funny.
