Yesterday I was reading the latest post I had written to ‘a really good friend of mine’ and he said to me “you need to write something funny'” If you know me, I am all about the funny, the laugh out loud, the guffaw!! It is the number one quality I look for in a man. Without laughter in my life I think I would seriously think of shooting myself.
I think, in general, people have a hard time taking me seriously because of my quirky sense of humor and I almost always have a ridiculously large smile on my face.
Here are a few things I find funny. ‘Why We Suck’ by Denis Leary. Now that’s funny !
This book is “Part memoir, part self help tome but definitely a full-time funny assault on all the posers, politicians and pop culture icons who have sucked in public for far too long, this book is a call to arms for everyone who feels the way the good doctor does: Skinny jeans are for skinny people. Men will never change. Not even into clean underwear”.
Denis warns you right from the get go that if you are a woman , you will soon be livid. If you are a man, you are going to be filled with a burning rage. This book is a parody, satire and simply pokes fun at a variety of different topic.
I love men who can confidently stand up and say exactly how they feel with no filter whatsoever! That is freedom of speech! I also love ‘Rescue Me’ the television series where Leary is co-creator, co-writer, producer as well as being the lead. It’s brilliantly written. You never really know what to expect. You can be laughing at the content one minute and crying the next.
If you’re not in the mood for a book then I recommend the movie “Burn after reading” with Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Frances McDormand. Brad’s character is an 80’s personal trainer from a local gym. I am an 80’s girl so it was a great flashback. He’s not the gorgeous Brad Pitt we’re used to, but as I said before, humor is the number one quality I look for in a man. I laughed out loud in this movie. I was glad it was a rental so I could keep rewinding it and, seriously, I couldn’t stop laughing for days! You have to check it out !
So, although I don’t feel like writing anything funny at this particular moment in time, I do have a gut laugh out loud almost everyday. I think one of the most important things in life is that you’re able to laugh at yourself, not take anything too seriously, and remember this too will pass. I have decided to just go with the flow and be true to my voice; what ever I am feeling is what you’ll be reading.
I know this picture isn’t funny, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do… ; )
