    I try to make light of everything.

    . Life is too short to be serious all the time. There's a time for laughter and a time to be serious.

    In order to become a successful person,

    I make fun of myself in my conscienceness,

    and realize my own flaws. I can look back at the way I handled a situation and laugh at myself for being edgy and impulsive. Almost as if there is a rift between who I am and who my mind is. Maybe I'm just egocentric and selfish, narrating myself. The Human mind is incredible...

    I'm such a clutz. Everyday I drop something

    or run into a door or something . But, I accepted it . It's easier to laugh at myself for being such a dork .

    Have you ever had that moment

    when you made a funny and you just had to laugh at, and TELL yourself you're funny? Even if those around don't laugh, you still laugh because you're hilarious. EVEN IF YOU'RE BY YOURSELF, YOU'RE STILL HILARIOUS.

    Okay so here's a joke to make you laugh.

    I hope. I laughed. It's dark. But I laughed. Ok here goes. "You can't make everyone happy, you're not Nutella!" Did you laugh? No...okay... It's good advice though!! 😁😁

    When I was in the 7th grade I was sitting at

    the top of the bleachers for a school assembly. On the way down I tripped. I tumbled to the bottom. My boot flew off on my way down. I was incredibly embarrassed, everyone was looking at me. I didn't know what to do. So I just started laughing and hopped over to retrieve my shoe...

    I wanted to get ice from the dispenser on the

    door of the fridge. I stood there for a good minute before I realized that I was holding the cup under the backdoor knob and not the fridge. I am sick today, so having a fever is my excuse.

    I don't like doing it,

    but if it keeps me from being made fun of longer than necessary then I'm all for it.

    Don't be such a tightwad guys/gals!

    Laughter is the best medicine and it's always a good thing to have daily. There's nothing wrong about being able to laugh at yourself once in a while. We're all imperfect creatures! Rather than despairing at our problems and imperfections, we should embrace them and learn to...

    Shopping Cart Rage

    Shopping cart rage. Anyone who spends any amount of time in the supermarket is familiar with this type of stress. It develops right after the road rage and the parking lot rage, and just before the check out line rage. Well, perhaps rage is too strong a word. It isn’t Β full...

    I laugh at myself all the time.

    If you can't laugh at mishaps, you're taking life too seriously.

    That moment when you start talking to yourself

    and you start smiling like an idiot because you're so damn hilarious.

    This is the defining

    and deciding factor in whether you've got a good sense of humour! Anyone can copy someone else's words and laugh at others. But you have to be thick skinned enough to see the mirth and error in yourself too!

    So, it's about eight o'clock at night,

    and my dad has a couple of people from church over so they can talk about fast offerings or something. He's talking to the Bishop, some other guys, and one or two guys my age. I'm tired. I want to take a shower and go to bed rather than listen to people talk about money for...
