I am hilarious … at least to me. I crack myself up all the time. Then again, I am easily amused. I’ve always viewed that as a positive thing – I laugh all the time.
But before I go any further, I need to clarify. There are some things I find quite unfunny. There’s Something About Mary is one of them.
I turned the film off at the half way point because I hadn’t cracked a smile once and spent most of that time horrified.
That isn’t to say that I don’t like silly movies. Team America is one of my all-time favorites. I even own a copy!
I guess to be more accurate, I appreciate my own sense of humor (a lot!) and find lots of things in daily life to lift my spirits.
Things guaranteed to crack me up:
1. Voicing the cats’ thoughts. You already know about my cat’s writing ability, but you don’t know that a couple years ago I started a running commentary of what the cats are thinking. After asking Carmen to use her words instead of just glaring at me to no avail, I decided to give her words myself. Normally it is simply, “You suck,” but occasionally they have more insightful things to say – “I dare you to squirt me one more time just because I am putting my butt where you prepare food. Go ahead, try it. Just remember, I know where you sleep!”
2. Auto correct, but only one in particular. I often text “Holy crap.” My new cell phone has decided that that is a typo and corrects it to read “Holy Carp.” That correction makes me laugh, so I never fix it. I keep thinking of the WKRP episode when their mascot is a giant carp.
3. When I am IMing and type “LOL,” an laughing icon appears that giggles. Each time I type it and it giggles, I giggle. My sister, Rebecca, has caught on, though. If I type LOL for seemingly no reason, she asks about the giggle. I guess I have to ration those out more!
What are some of the things in daily life that crack you up? or How many of my readers are old enough to remember WKRP?
