Is It Just Me?

What does it take to be taken seriously by those you see regularly? I wonder about that. I wonder if my way of looking at life is so bizarre that certain people see me as just another wacko or if I have something meaningful to say.

You see, I don’t want to be taken too seriously most of the time. I prefer there to be fun with everyone smiling, and laughing. I find it makes for a more pleasant time for all. I prefer to be self-deprecating as I really do like to laugh at myself. I have some odd habits, but so does everyone else. The difference with me is that I find myself amusing sometimes. I have faults and I know this. But not everyone is on board with the Christy sense of humor.

I LOVE sarcasm. I think I love it because it brings out our faults without just being nasty. Sly comments made here and there to bring up the absurdity of the moment. How hard is that? I make these comments about myself. Again, I like to make fun of myself as well as those around me.

Those that don’t like my sense of humor are, unfortunately, close to me. I have yet to figure out why they would think I mean to hurt their feelings. Perplexing to say the least. How's this for deep thought?


  1. I am exactly the same way. I will make fun of myself all the time. My brothers/sisters, mom and dad get all bent out of shape with my humor. Too bad so sad for them. oh, that's why I don't do the family functions anymore. They are the losers.

    I love reading your blog. And know that we would have a freaking good time together.

  2. If you ever find the answer to this question please let me know.. I'm the family screw-up and I would love to know how to be taken as I am and not as I was.

  3. And, I love your brand of sarcasm. It makes me happy.
