Day 254

The joke was pretty asinine, I realized, which was fairly common for me. But I think that I was saying it to a mentor-figure, one I truly love and value...that made it click: I try to be funny too often.

Which is probably why the mentor-figure just stared at me. The quip wasn't funny--well, maybe a little--but I insisted on sticking with it, pressing home that it was something worth laughing about.

I'd like to think that I have a good sense of humor: sometimes simple, deadpan when necessary, based on nuance and lightheartedness. I don't know when I fell into the trap of un-needed urgency, complexity or grim laughs, but I want out.
