I read this and wonder why I even bother. I’m not terribly witty on paper…not all too witty in life either. I tend to be very dense and insanely literal, if you insist. So I’m not sure what I’m doing here, in this virtual world full of interesting, funny, witty people.
“Oh, don’t be so hard on yourself,” you say. “You’re comparing yourself to someone who’s been doing this a long time,” you say. “A writer,” you add.
“Yes,” I say. “A real live writer,” I mutter.
All this to say, it is not due to my delusional belief that I am all that interesting, funny or witty, that I am here with you this day (and the others).
Just so you know. Just so we’re clear.
