    Humor is great, and it can get us through some difficult situations. Sometimes, though, it's hard to see the humor, especially when times are tough. I don't laugh as much as I used to, although I do have one friend who can almost always make me laugh I also have a friend who swears I'm a hilarious storyteller, but they're true stories, and it's just real life, I'm not embellishing the situations. I enjoy some comedies, but others seem forced. I agree that Hollywood doesn't seem to understand subtlety, and pushes the envelope way too much. That's one reason I tend to skip past many sitcoms and movie comedies these days.

    There’s something off about my sense of humor. Comedies for example that many folks consider classics, I usually turn off after 30 minutes, if I can make it that long. They leave me absolutely dry. The last time I really remember laughing hard at a movie was Fight Club I think and that wasn’t a comedy. Same with TV series. I’ve not seen the most wildly popular sit-coms because they just strike me as stupid rather than funny. I don’t know how I got this way. I like a good laugh, just can’t find them.

    I’ve pretty much always been this way despite medications. Just me I guess.

    I have always disliked the Three Stooges, Jerry Lewis--anything where someone was made the fool or hurt for a laugh. Some of Laurel and Hardy were funny. I loved the Golden Girls but it is probably passe now.

    What's the saying, 'You'll laugh at it afterward.' or something like that? That basically sums up our family when it comes to humor and I believe my 17 year old grandson came by it honestly.

    So my birthday was a couple of days ago. Half the day was spent with two of my grandsons (17 and 2, brothers). I told the oldest that it was my birthday. He said 'I didn't know that.' and the day went on. So today my daughter in law came over with my favorite German Chocolate cake and balloons apologizing her heart out wishing me a happy birthday and then she said, "I ask Boiboi if he knew it was your birthday and he said 'Yeah.' She asked "Why didn't you tell us?' He said, 'It was my day off.' (He didn't have school) We both laughed.
