I don’t write humor stories for obvious reasons. It’s not that I’m not funny or I don’t live in a funny house. I actually think sometimes that they could (almost) make our house into a reality TV show, minus the serious discussions we have, because we are funny. (not that I watch reality TV either.)
My dad and one brother are naturally funny and my other brother developed a good enough sense of humor that he is also funny, plus, we have hundreds of inside jokes that make it even more funny for us. (Although I think one of the greatest things to say is something like, “Mom, you know, if someone who did not understand our communication dynamics would have been seriously bothered by that comment.”)
IN spite of all this, I don’t write humor. I can’t really figure out how.
Oh, sure, I add in a few humorous comments now and again. But really humorous stories that just make you laugh and laugh are impossible for me. Then again, I have a very abstract form of humor too.
It’s not that I don’t want to write them either. I have this really funny story inside my head that involves a new writer writing something and suddenly having her characters pop out of nowhere and give her comments or advice or anything about her story. I just haven’t gotten around to writing that yet. I just don’t know quite how.
Then, my blog posts aren’t funny, as you obviously know. I go for more of the serious route I suppose. I guess not that many funny things happen to me.
Problem is it gets me so jealous of people who can write funny things. I was reading a blog (instead of doing homework or writing. I know. Bad Abigail.) and it was just so funny.
Because of that, I’m going to share it with you. And because it’s my favorite comic strip. Actually, It’s the only comic strip I read. It’s called Pearls before Swine. And his blog is really funny. And technically, he is a writer too.
But now, after reading almost all of the last month’s posts, my writing is starting to take on his type of writing. That isn’t good.
Or maybe it is. It would add humor to what I say.
