Funny How That Is...or Isn't

The problem with writing a humorous blog is that sometimes you don't always feel so humorous.

I've been sitting here thinking, Okay, Meg.  Time to bring on the funny!

::crickets::

Whoops.  Let's try that again.  Ready, set.....FUNNY!

::tick tock tick tock::

Hmmmm.  Maybe I'm thirsty.  Or hungry.  Cookies!  Okay, NOW it's funny time.

::jepoardy music::

Let's face it.  I got nothing.  The funny tank is empty.  All I can think to post about it is a semi-risque story involving my children and pickles that could cause them severe embarrassment issues one day.  And maybe they're starting to get too old for me to do that?  Things to ponder.

See?  I'm totally not feeling funny.  I'm feeling reflective.  Which is a dangerous thing for a humor blog.  Well, maybe not dangerous, per se, but kind of annoying.

Crap.  There I go being reflective again.

Anyhoo, I do need to recap girls' weekend 2011, but that involves pictures which I have not downloaded from my camera yet.  In the meantime, I will try to muster up some funny. 

I'm sure it's coming.  Any minute now.

After the fork story, I'm sure a pickle story would be more than acceptable :)

Steph said...

You're still funny. Don't worry.
Can't wait to see your girls weekend pics!

Take your time. I'm STILL laughing about the refrigerator post from quite awhile back.

Why did the chicken cross the playground?

Girl, I have been totally feeling the same way. Its like my funny has been plugged up and I can't find a plunger big enough to remove the clog.

Don't hurt yourself. ;)

Cookies always bring the funny for me...no no that's not right...they bring something don't they? Oh right...cookies bring the fat ass for me not the funny.

Whenever this happens to me, I just take my children, all three is possible, out in public. Never fails.

Scott said...

I'm not sure if this is funny or sad but I just realized that I have spent the last half hour watching Miss Spider's Sunny Patch instead of studying while the kids have been upstairs educating themselves with books.
Look on the bright side... that one person isn't coming into town this weekend anymore!

You know...you don't always have to be funny to be funny! Case in point? This post.

It's always nice to change things up.

Emily said...

As the others have said, we'll take you any way you are! (And if all else fails, do what I do - post a picture of the kids!).

hope you find your funny again soon!

In the meantime, EAT MORE COOKIES!!! :) :)

Oh, I totally get you. The problem with having a humor blog is that you always feel like you have to come up with something witty and entertaining. I remember having serious anxiety the first time I wrote a serious post and turns out people actually liked it.

Why is it that a post about not being funny ends up being amusing? Gotta love when things work out like that. It will come...the funny will come.
