You know those comedians that always open up their show with a lead in like ‘Do you know those (insert your group of people, typically some group we can all relate to) who always do….’ just to get you to laugh right off the bat? OK, that’s my opening line at open mike night. No, I have never done it but I have played a comedian in my own, real life.
Typically, you will not get straight answers from me. Ask my mother and she will tell you the same thing. I just can’t give up this idea that life should be fun.
So, when you read this list, know I do it tongue-in-cheek.
