Write about something you love about yourself.
Hmm. This one is easy today because I’m having a pretty good day. I’m not slathering myself in black eyeliner and staring at the wall, which AS WE ALL KNOW is always a possibility. Anyway, I’ve been thinking about this one, and here’s the most honest thing I can say.
I love that I can make people laugh.
I know that the blog can get bogged down in gloom and doom, and seriously, you guys are SO supportive through the tough times, you have no idea how much it means to me, but honestly? I love, love, love when someone laughs at something I’ve said or done – when MEANING to be funny, that is, not when I fall down or I forget to wear pants or something, but I guess that too, in a way. I just love that I have the ability to make others smile.
There’s really no better compliment anyone could give me than “You make me laugh,” because it’s usually about something I have written, which is my passion, and man, if your passion can entertain others? Hot damn, that’s a great feeling. It also allows me, in my weird little messed-up brainpan, to ALLOW myself to be happy, because in my head, technically, the laughter is something I’m giving to others, not taking for myself, so the bad voices don’t tell me I”m being selfish. Hey, it’s my broken logic, just roll with it, okay?
A great day for me? Is sitting down and writing something, reading over it and saying “that’s gonna make people laugh”, or writing something that makes ME laugh as I write it. It can be anything, an email, a text, a blog entry, anything that gives someone a chuckle is the bee’s knees for me. People ask me how I can write recaps for terrible reality tv shows, how PAINFUL it must be, how it must SUCK GOAT ASS to do every week. NAY! Quite to the contrary, I love writing reality show recaps. Why? Because they make people laugh. I love that I can do that.
So if you haven’t read my stuff over at MamaPop lately, here are some links for your enjoyment. And if you have a bit of a guffaw at them, or anything I write, really – and yes, I know the cat blogs are cheating because I’m just reporting the funniness of others – if you have that laugh? I DID that. And I love that about myself.
