Why? Because becoming hysterically funny (in addition to being uncommonly insightful and off the hook fast), would only lead to fame and fortune. While this would appear, to most people, to be a good thing, it’s actually a catch-22.
Jimmy Buffett, in one of his clever songs, sings, “I don’t want the fame that brings confusion. Where people recognize you on a plane“.
Tiger Woods responded this way when I asked him last year, “Do you ever get tired of being famous”? – “Since day one”, he answered, matter-of-factly.
But the other day, a seed was planted fertilized when a Google Alert for “Mid Life” led me to this funny blog by Tia – Clever Girl Gone Blog.
Just Sunday, at a meeting, I mentioned that my blog posts (1,300–ish in six months) aren’t particularly funny, even though in real life, I am. Inspiring? Fairly. Funny? Not so much. I’ll work on it as time permits. Ok?
Meanwhile, just wanted to say thanks for following. Carpe diem.
