    People have told me that I have extremely dry

    sense of humor. And that I got it from my mother. But I don't even realize it. It's just I have a very different perspective on life in general, rather pessimistic. Blunt and honest, they say. Sometimes I just utter words the way I see it... and all the sudden, everyone in the...

    So I've Heard

    I can't say whether it's true or not, but I have been told by others that I have a dry sense of humor. I don't particularly like dry senses of humor in others, so I don't want to claim it for myself. But it probably is true.
