My girlfriend Alex is hilarious.
I love being around her because I never know what she will say next. I sometimes wonder how her mind is wired that she's so quick witted.
She and Gentleman Jack have become Facebook friends because they're both commenting on my FB page. She picks on him. He picks on her. They both crack me up.
One day last week, Jack and I both put up status updates that were very ethereal. It was completely unplanned! Apparently Alex had noticed that Jack and I do this quite often. So she left the following comment on his post:
"If you were a girl...I'm certain that your periods would be in sync with T's."
My ex-husband cracks me up.
The guy can come up with one liners at the drop of a hat! And forget it, once there's alcohol involved, he could seriously get paid for where his mind goes. He makes up funny songs. He dances for everybody. The dude makes for wonderful party entertainment.
It was one of the reasons I fell for him.
When we were initially dating, one of his favorite things to do was to make up stories to see if I would believe him. I was new to the Dallas area and one of my favorite landmarks was the infamous Reunion Tower.
He actually told me an entire story about how they had trained monkeys that they used to change the light bulbs on the tower. It made perfect sense to me. I couldn't imagine any other way they could be changed.
I was convinced!
Until I met my friend Marie a few years later whose step-father was one of the designers of the tower. She clarified the story for me.
No trained monkeys. And one boyfriend who pulled one over me for two years!
One of the very first bloggers I started reading was Susan at One Woman Show. She was a single mother of two, like myself. She has the same struggles but she handled it with such humor.
It was one of the very first blog posts I read that hooked me: Scenes Not from an Italian Restaurant
I remember reading that post and thinking... YES! Humor gets us through so much!
I love funny people.
I LOVE to laugh.
I think I'm too damn serious for my own good. Sure I can make my kids laugh. I can crack up any member of my family. Occasionally I will say something that I think is pretty witty.
But I want to be more funny!
And as a blogger, I can't help but LOL when I read the following blogs:
The Bloggess - (this post is pee-in-your-pants funny.)
Are there any funny bloggers that you read?
