Get better.

If you know me, or have read this for any length of time, then you probably know that I have a few insecurities. I've had to learn to try not to take things personally. Not everyone is going to like me. Not everyone is going to think I'm funny.

But you see, this is the challenge. It is my job to make you a convert. I want to convince you that I really AM funny. This is exactly why I need to get better at being funny. I need to always be trying harder, because even after I convince YOU, I've got to convince someone else. It's a full time fucking job. A job that I get paid for in laughter that I can't hear.

If anything, I want to hear criticism. (Of the CONSTRUCTIVE variety, anyways.) If I don't know I'm doing it wrong, I'll never be able to start doing it right.

Wait. That wasn't funny, was it? FUCK.

I actually think you're pretty good- I kind of admire your witty skills and wish I had your mojo.

Props for putting yourself out there- I'm afriad if I made a post like this, suddenly I would be awash with commentors telling me that my attempts at humor are made of suck.

You're pretty funny when we're out and about. Kind of in a notice-things-as-you-go way, as opposed to the crafted-a-joke-while-watching-ANTM-last-night way. I recommend trusting your instinct more and going for it right as you think of it, you've got something there, kid.

Thanks guys! I suppose it's like anything else in life. It's never going to work 100% of the time, right? Right.
