Joking Around

Has this ever happened to you? You're with a group of people and someone comes out with what seems to be the funniest joke you have ever heard and you laugh so hard your sides hurt or the sip you were taking just burst out and sprays all, well I'm the one with the sides hurting. Have to applaud the people who can tell a joke the right way. Recalling and retelling joke is not my forte. I am more likely to be blushing after I butchered the punch line....yep that's me, smiling and just going with it cause sometimes that is all you can do. My bar room whit (which took years to ripe fully) gets me out of it at times but for the most part I refrain from retelling funny jokes unless I have memorized it like my life depended on it.

Not too long ago, I broke out with this one joke and right before the punch line everyone looked at me in anticipation not knowing whether or not I would get the punch line right. Just the look alone on their faces was enough for me to burst out laughing but I held the laughter in and delivered the punch line...and everyone laughed but there was a little something extra behind that laugh. What I didn't know was that they had all agreed, prior to me saying the joke, to all look at me so seriously and so intensely to see if they could make me nervous enough to forget the punch line, ha! It didn't work yet it reminded me that with this crazy bunch you have to stay on your toes cause you never know what they will be concocting next.
