Humor At Large

I had a job the other day, and when the wardrobe mistress said, “You aren’t wearing a bra?” I said, “No, never do…only recreationally. ”

Then I was sitting in the corner having a snack and a kid who could have been my son, though mine would have been much bettered mannered said, “Did you come here to work or eat.” And I said, “Eat.” (come on, he asked for that)

Not a smile to be had from either of them.

I finally realized it was futile trying to liven things up so I got out my best snarl, who evenΒ  can’t help but to grin once in a while.

If I didn’t find humor in practically everything, I’d call it a day.

How do these people do without it?

Tooling back from Starbucks there was a man having a fight with his poodle who wanted to go left rather than right.

What made me laugh was their difference in size. He looked like a football player while she could have fit right inside his helmet, and you could tell they’ve had this argument before.

Even a cookie couldn’t dissuade Fido adamant to head towards the park.

A lady was walking by so I said, “Isn’t that cute…how they’re arguing?”

And she said, “At this hour? I’d kill that fucking dog.”

Alrighty then.

  1. “Arighty then” is right! Jeez, people need to lighten up for god sakes. They’re really missing out.

    If you didn’t laugh, you’d cry.
    Last night, Maeve asked why I hadn’t stirred her coffee and why I didn’t use my brains. So I said “I think I’d be more effective with a teaspoon”.

    Susannah, that was NO lady! Until my mid forties I only had one bra that I referred to as my ‘work’ bra. I wouldn’t have begun wearing them at all if two of my four children weren’t boys. I was very small and the dumb bras just hung there supporting nothing. Now I’m on the large size of average but no longer wear one around the house. Sorry boys, the girls must be free.

    Maybe it was before coffee? I wouldn’t even joke about killing a dog!

    I always tell H if he would watch more ‘I Love Lucy’ episodes in place of ‘CNN’ his sense of humor would be much, much better! πŸ˜‰


    • Don’t you love Lucy? I know all of them by heart and still howl…my favorite is when she and the Mertzes are at The Brown Derby and she meets William Holden…the part when she sets her fake nose on fire was an accident, and they kept it in…lol


  6. I’d hate to live like that, uptight and humourless. Nothing you can do sometimes except make sure they don’t bring you down too (or, as you said, run away in case they’re armed).
