Are you the funny one in most groups? What kinds of things do you find funniest?
I am the funny one in most groups. Some groups don’t know it yet. Other groups are in denial. They don’t think I say much either because I’m a snob or I’m not very smart. Neither of those reasons are true. I’m very friendly, unless you’re a jerk or you are flirting with my boyfriend. Maybe I’m not a rocket scientist but I get by well enough with what brains I do have. I’m just quiet and busy casing the room to find all of the emergency exits.
When I’m in a group with loud people, I am quiet and unassuming. Most of the loud people don’t notice that I’m funny until it slips out. The funniness escapes from my mouth before I can stop it. On a few occasions, I zing somebody who is trying to zing someone else and failing. So the zinger comes out and puts them out of their misery. It’s not something I plan. It just happens. (Why do I sound like I’m cheating? I’m not cheating. I swear I am always faithful to humor.)
After the zinger come out, it’s too late, the loud people know. Then they either love me or hate me. I think I zinged someone’s boyfriend once. We don’t talk much anymore. I’m okay with that because I will stand by what I said. I can’t say it on the blog. My mother reads this for gosh sake’s. She’ll appreciate that I said something hysterically funny. However, if my mom is there, I am not the funniest one in the room anymore. I am also okay with that.
The things that I find funny are Monty Python and autocorrect posts that circulate on the Internet. They make me laugh until I cry every time. It’s makes me wish that my phone had autocorrect. Here’s a link to some autocorrect fails and my favorite Monty Python skit. Enjoy!
