I've never considered myself a funny person. I mean I love to laugh, but I've never really thought I was capable of making other people laugh. My brother is the funniest person I know. He does impersonations and 1001 totally accurate accents, all picked up by the same ear that can play a tune on an instrument he's never handled before (not that there are many instruments he's never picked up). My sides hurt after visiting him because I laugh so hard in his presence. When people meet him they almost always say something along the lines of, "You should/could be a standup comic." He usually responds with a humble, "Nah... I just like making the people I love laugh."
I suppose that's why I've never considered myself funny. That title's already taken, along with artist, in my family.
I have noticed that people have occasionally been known to laugh in my presence, usually at the same time as me. But I never consciously set out to be funny... far too much probability of failure for my tastes.
So imagine my surprise that Bubandpie has given me -- ME -- a ROFL award for this post. I'm really very shocked. And I'm not just saying that in a give-me-a-moment-while-I-pull-a-few-notes-out-of-my-pocket way either.
