I really amuse myself. In fact, I think I am one of the funniest people I know. Other people may not think I am funny at all, but I have a secret advantage - only I know what really makes me laugh. Who else could completely nail my sense of humor, other than myself? People who know me well notice me fighting giggles at seemingly random moments. I have a habit of thinking of things I think are really funny when other people are talking and I often smile and try not to laugh out loud at my own wit.
I would like to think that everyone has something that they think they are the best at. For instance, if you loooooooove decorating your house, you are probably the best interior decorator that you know. Not because some magazine has photographed your house, simply because you know your own taste and preferences better than any professional ever could. Only you know exactly the right spot to put that sentimental trinket so that you see it when you need to remember it most. A cook may think they are the best because they enjoy cooking and most importantly, they know what they like to eat and not eat.
I often don't reveal my sense of humor until I know someone really well because I get too nervous to be funny. I also have a sneaking suspicion that some people may think "wow, what a dork" instead of "wow, she should be a stand up commedian." But even if others do think I'm a complete dork, I like the confidence I feel when I say to myself "Kari, you are the funniest person I know!" At least I have one fan.
Then, during church last night, God crept up behind me and said "Kari, I think you are pretty darn hilarious too." Make that two.
