I Have a Dry Sense of Humor

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 177 People

    My friend informed me

    that I have a dry sense of humor. I never really thought of myself with a dry sense of humor, I always thought I was just good at saying witty things. Giving it some thought I have realized that I do indeed have a dry sense of humor. Amazing how our perception of ourselves can...

    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.

    Sometimes, Most Times, People Just Don't Get My Humor

    I love to laugh and make others laugh. Intelligent humor is the best, but I will also laugh out loud to goofy movies or dirty jokes.
