Is a person born with a sense of humor? The older I get it saddens me to notice that younger folks do not have the ability to laugh at themselves.
(I hated that I just used the word “folks”, I’m really not that old, not even 40 yet.)
Luckily, my Mommy brain has blocked out the memory of my personality when I was in my early 20’s. I would like to think I had a sense of humor.
People seem so damn sensitive now-a-days!
With technology the way it is today, you put yourself out there.
Meaning, in my early 20’s we didn’t have Facebook, Twitter. Shit we still had dial up Internet.
People are constantly slapping their duck faces on and snapping a picture and uploading it to Facebook. I can see your phone/camera in your hand pointed at the mirror so, you know what you look like when you made that face you must think you look good.
What do you expect when you post pictures of yourself on social media sites? Everyone knows you’re looking for attention. When I see these pictures, I look below to read the comments hoping someone pointed out that big lips went out with Angelina Jolie or maybe the nightly face cream isn’t working like you thought. Nope, I see; “You look so pretty.” or “I love your shirt.” I say what the hell, why don’t you take the freshly washed bra off the shower curtain before you snap that picture. Or, at least clean up the bathroom a bit!
I think that’s why people can’t laugh at themselves anymore. The comments below the freaky picture is proof. I know people see what I see, I know they think what I think. But, they continue with the nice, fake comments.
I can tell you this, if I post a duck face or crinkle forehead picture on Facebook, I would add a funny title letting people know that I know I look like a jerk. But, I like to have fun. I’m letting people know that I can laugh at myself.
Nope, those people don’t add a title, so what do I have to do? I have to post a comment. Nothing rude, I like to point out the obvious and make a joke about it. A joke who if a 30+ person would read it would laugh. They wouldn't delete the comment and pretend it never happened. Instead of deleting the comment maybe delete the picture.
Personally, what I think is attractive in a person, man or woman is a sense of humor. Not, those silly pictures of yourself, with a dirty bathroom behind you.
Laugh at yourself, Laugh at other people, Laugh with other people, Make people laugh. Life is too short to be so serious all the time.
