31 Day Countdown to the CAE…Do I amuse you….?

Only 31 days until the big event! Yesterday, I blogged that I would share something about myself everyday.

I figured I would start the next 31 days off right and come clean, with a confession.

So here it goes… I’m not very funny. If you’ve read any of my books, you would probably have guessed that I’m not very funny. I don’t think about or write things that are funny. But I LOVE to laugh, great big loud belly laughs, and I absolutely adore funny people.

Funny people are a wonderful muse. They’re inspirational and gifted and they just make life better. If I’m lucky, I can squeak out a one liner now and again but that’s about as much as my funny bone surfaces. Funny people remind us that life is worth living and there is a reason for the pain we have to endure.

But I laugh easily and I search for levity in most things. Best of all, I try not to take myself too seriously, which is good because my husband and my youngest son are the comedians of the family. The harder I try, the less funny I am so I don’t expect to make people laugh. But when they do, especially children or funny people, it feels wonderful! I love making my boys laugh, but potty humor is something that I can do well, so I do it often. But I don’t write it.

I write drama, angst, sadness, and pain because it’s what comes naturally and it’s where I can get lost. It’s unlikely that I will purposely ever amuse anyone with my writing, but I’ve learned to never say never.

Blog Challenge Day 10

What’s your best physical feature?

That’s a funny question to answer without feeling vain. But I’ll answer it anyways because it’s funny.
The answer is…….my legs.

I’m short. And my legs are short.

Duh.

But ever since I’ve been a kid, they’ve been muscular. In heels, my legs look longer and actually normal looking. But typically my legs just look…well, short.

My legs make me look athletic because my calves are muscular. In high school, I ran track for one year and I actually think they took pity on me because I was terrible! And Sloooooooooowwwwww. My track coach affectionately (I think) called me “Stumpy.” My legs give me the appearance of agility and speed, but in reality I am clumsy and agile. I can climb and jump up and down like a little spider monkey, but that’s about as good as it gets.

So there you have it. My best physical feature: Short, muscular, legs.
