English Is My 2nd Language - Sarcasm Is My 1st!Sarcasm is not just a choice - it's a way of life! =)
If I didn't have my charming, dark sarcasm to get me through the day - I would cry.
Not being a drama queen...I've truly had more than my fair share of tragedy and trauma throughout my life. People who get to know me and learn my history are shocked - hands down, every single time. You might as well picture that cartoon-character 'jaw drop' reaction!! You can try to judge this book by it's cover but you'll be way off. As they say, appearances are deceiving. I've learned to blend in, fly under the radar even!
But the universe must think I'm a regular Armstrong because it keeps adding to my load. If our challenges in life are lessons - I must have signed up for the PhD of Life 101 and then some!
But seriously, making light of it all and being a total smart-*** at times (better to be a smart-*** than a dumb-****, I say) is what has kept me alive and as close to sane as I get.
I CAN be serious and I know when it's best to shelter those around me from the amazing sarcasmic web I weave. But life is so BORING without it!! And way too hard to handle.
I feel bad for those who take things too seriously - usually the same folks who take what I say too seriously. Through the years, my sarcastic radar has improved and I can usually tell within a couple minutes if someone speaks my language or not. Like minded people gravitate toward eachother - so I'm surrounded by smart-***** and I love it! We are family, we speak the same language and we 'get-it'.
I have a hard time really connecting with people who don't use sarcasm. It gives me the creeps, actually! It feels so 'flat'. Like walking into a big, empty auditorium and yelling out "hello!" but there's no echo - it's just not right, I tell you!
