Humor

“You are so funny!” It always surprises me when someone says that; I can’t be funny on command, but I definitely have a sense of humor and am in tune with the ridiculous. Physical comedy – slapstick – makes my skin crawl, but puns delight me. My son was amused (and appalled) that I knew the punchlines to at least twenty “dead baby jokes” and didn’t even... read more

Rarely is it mentioned to the budding poet-blossom that... read more
