Yesterday I was presenting a PD and more than one teacher said to me, “You’re so funny!” Moi?
Some people like to be told they look pretty or their outfit is snazzy. Not me. Tell me I’m funny and you’ll be my best friend for life.
It’s true, I love making people laugh. That coupled with a rather tumultuous childhood always made me think I could be a comedian. (I believe comedians all have a dark side.) But it turns out, it’s one thing to be the funny friend and another to actually write jokes. A few years ago I tried one out on my husband. His blank stare told me everything I needed to know. I guess he didn’t get it.
Maybe I need to go to school for joke-writing? Let me put that on my to-do list for when I retire. Until then I’ll just be the funny friend.
