I still haven’t found what I’m blogging for

You probably thought this might be another attempt at a parody song. No not this time. (you do read the post titles?) However I will leave a related youtube clip at the bottom.

Reflective moments (other than the mirror in the morning) offer us many life choices to ponder. I recently replied to a daughter’s FB posting: 
“wondering what-ifs only helps if you apply it to the future.”
I should slightly change this post title. I have found some of what I’ve been blogging for. I’m thankful for the feedback and sharing that comes with blogging. I honestly believe a few of my posts have lighten-up a reader or two.

I don’t remember what recent show I heard the following idea but I do think it’s very true. You can’t fake being funny. You either are or you’re not. People can pull off acting serious or dramatic easier.

The holidays are approaching (as if you could avoid noticing). Apparently the original theme for Thanksgiving was not a big sale event, preparation for Christmas shopping, having a reason to clean the house, nor stuffing your pie-hole with pie. I understand the original theme was to share and be thankful for what we have.

I still haven’t posted what I’m looking for --- I hope it’s a long time coming because trying various posting ideas is too fun.

First song I thought of was by REO Speedwagon. But the more I thought about it, the song is "I can't fight this feeling anymore". Not quite the same thing. You could, however, easily replace the words in the REO Speedwagon song.

Interesting short comment - thanks for browsing by A Few Clowns Short.

I like that song too but as you said very different. It could be, "I can't blog this feeling anymore".

I did expect a parody when I saw your title.

You are right that a person can't really fake humor but isn't it interesting the diversity as to what people find humorous. My friend that passed away in September was so serious all the time but she thought she was funny. Occasionally in conversation she would say, "you know how funny I am but people don't get me." ...which was really funny coming from her.

Sad to have lost a friend. Humor is very tricky and certainly influence by culture. I've heard people say they don't like British humor. I enjoy it. It probably has changed since Monty Python and Mr. Bean. thanks
