Be more funny.

I want to be funnier, wittier, and overall more entertaining. Not just because I haven’t mastered the looks department, either. [So much plucking.]

I find myself reading other people’s blogs, tweets, and Facebook messages (real ones, not just re-re-reposts of someone else’s funny-ness). I wonder if these people’s lives are just so whimsical, that charming stories and anecdotes just fall into their laps. Maybe they’re making it up. Especially parents talking about their kids. Kids aren’t that funny, are they?

Or maybe, I’m just not paying enough attention to my own life. Maybe the things I take for granted, that I don’t really notice, are actually comedy gold. I’m gonna work on mining that crap.

Until then, here are some of the People – and, not surprisingly, kids – who were funnier than me: Celebrity commentary edition:

This kid was 6 years old at the time he said this nugget:

This is a 5 year old girl who, unless her parents are liars, constantly slays me. :

Seriously, this was from a few weeks ago. How many 25 year olds know about and name-drop Freddie Mercury in a sentence?

I’ve got some comedy chops to hone. And perhaps I’ll have more gifts to share with the WordPressiverse….
