I Wish I Could Be Funny
One of my favorite websites is Cracked because in most cases it is super, laugh out loud funny. I even downloaded the app on my phone so I could have funny stuff to read wherever I went.
As I was reading a few days ago, I saw the very shiny 'Write For Us' link at the top of the page. I'm always on the lookout for these sorts of offers since a similar link is how I got to be a GeekMom core contributor.
I went so far to click on the Cracked "Write For Us" link and then I realized. I couldn't write for them - I'm not funny. Comedy has never been my thing, ever. And if I tried to be funny it would probably come out very forced, which isn't funny at all.
When I was in college, my best friend and I would write stories together. We tried to be funny once and it ended up being more of a satire piece with our current boyfriends being cast into evil dictator roles. It was weird but it wasn't funny.
So I wish I could write humor, but I can't. I hope my blog is entertaining but I know it will never be funny. Which makes me admire the fine writers at Cracked all the more.
