I did it for the Glory

So over the holiday weekend, I found out I am completely not funny. Not only that, I am unoriginal in every way. All my material… shamelessly lifted.
Basically I found this out in the following manner: Caitlin (girlfriend and best thing ever) starts telling a story to a circle of people. Her voice is the combination of a socially awkward deer and a shy prairie dog. She mumbled through the story and naturally no one listened/ laughed… except me…
Then I looked at her…the shifty eyes came out and I started the story over in my startlingly loud and unignorable thing I call my voice. Heads snapped over to me and the crowd reaction was stellar. I did it for the glory and then wouldn’t make eye contact with Cait after. HA. Then I thought about it and this happens constantly. She tells a story/joke and I pounce like a jungle cat. I am a mouthpiece for a very funny low talker… and I think I am ok with that as long as the glory is mine.

Hmmm. Sketchy, very sketchy. I'm going to be more discriminating with my laughter from now on.

I'll call you later today. But now it's futbol time.

Very introspective...

I need to tell you, that YouTube video on your sidebar is my fav! I watched it many times last year and am now doing it again in the days before IMLP. Some people gotta go down!
