The Prankster In Me

Pull My Finger Babe

To know me is to either love me or hate me. I love to laugh. To me laughter is the best medicine. Even if it's only for 30 seconds, it's 30 seconds of relief from the real world.

Having the ability to find humor, even in the most tragic of events, is both a blessing and a curse. Actually, by itself it's a blessing. It's the timing that gets me in trouble sometimes.

It took me awhile, and I still haven't mastered it, to realize timing is more then the rhythm of a joke or story. You've heard the saying, "There is a time for everything". That's so true in comedy. Sometimes it's just not the right time to joke about a subject matter. Take 9-11. Has enough time gone by to joke about it? Will there ever be a time to joke about it? Only time will tell.

As I've grown older, I've manage to comprehend the right time to tell a joke. In my younger days I was always upsetting someone with a joke at the wrong time. However, back then I didn't care. It never really bothered me. My attitude was F you if you can't take a joke. I still have that attitude, but I realize the damage I can cause.

My main problem is I don't put much faith in words. They can be arrange, twisted and manipulated to mean anything. They can be soothing or used to trick you. I'm an action guy. You can tell me anything, but your actions will reveal your true meaning.

However, there are a lot of people that live and die by words. Good words make them all warm and fuzzy, while the bad words hurt them. It doesn't matter what actions accompany the words. It the words that matter. Yes, the man beats his wife, but he says he loves her and all is well in her mind.

I'm not sure if I'm the outsider or the rest of the world is wrong. Maybe both of us are right and we must try to co exist. I'm doing my part, at least trying. So if I crazy glue your butt to the toilet, and it wasn't a good time, I apologize . If it wasn't a good time for you to experience the burning bag of dog poop outside your front door, I again apologize. However, as upset as you may get by my jokes or pranks, know that I am laughing my ass off and I thank you for that!
