Leigh and Lydia are hosting a fun Blogfest today.
- Post your favorite writer joke.
- If you don't have a writer joke (are there any?), post your favorite job-related joke.
- And if you don't have one of those (either writer- or work-related joke), post your favorite joke (or funny story).
I had been notified by CRESCENDOh, they were interested in my Reader’s Share story. It was a painful write; I hadn’t written anything in awhile other than on my blog. I had to share how art had saved me; helped me through a difficult time in my life. I had the ideas dancing in my head, but struggled with the arrangement on paper. I went for a walk; it seemed to help and typed it up. I asked my college bound son to read it. He didn’t have classes till later that day. He obliged. He said, “Mom, it sounds great, but you have a tendency to abuse commas. No one in the English language talks the way you write.”
I reviewed my paper and could see what he was saying. When I paused in thought; I stuck one in. Then it hit me…I do know someone who talks this way. I ran down the hallway to his room. Pounded on the door…"I know someone who talks the way I write."
Laughing he uttered, “Who?”
“Captain James T. Kirk” I said smirking.
He shook his laughing, "Yes, you are right, but he is probably the only person on this planet."
Here is Captain James T. Kirk having a good laugh.
