I guess that means the pressure is on. It is time to be funny. To “git witty wid it”.
Unfortunately, I have always been much funnier in person. Take my last entry, for example. The sole purpose for that one was to show an example of how quick with a rejoinder I can be. And then my long lost UK brother Cliff – a true writer, comedy or otherwise – outdid my joke tenfold with his “Banana Republic” comment.
I’ll bet he even “gets” Steely Dan.
So I am left to wonder what I can possibly write to make you – yeah, YOU – laugh.
I could mention that Dawn got a Tarot card reading from a student today and how I told her that I have only messed with Tarot cards once: it was the only available deck while playing poker with some friends. I got a full house, and four people died.
But even that joke is stolen (from the great Steven Wright).
Rest assured, I am going to keep my mind nestled on you (three) readers. Anything funny I say during the day, that does not compromise my job or my relationship with my wife, will be posted here.
Expect a few quiet days…
But check back often, because you never know.
