Around the school gates

21 Feb

‘…well, I’d better get home and start work’.

‘But I heard you’re a comedian…aren’t you a comedian…your boy told my girl that you’re a comedian’.

Three things:

1. Not sure that a few five minute spots here and there defines me as a comedian.

2. Writing jokes is hard work. No, really. It is.

3. Do kids not say the darndest things?

    I wrote a joke once (just an aside, not a whole bit) and I think I pulled a synapse.

    A friend of mine asked me to proofread her book and I changed a preposition. It was published!

    But yes, definitely you’re a comedian. What would you say, in response to ‘what do you do?’ otherwise?

    Funny how people think that being funny isn’t hard work.

    Wow, I can’t believe I know (even on-line) an actual comedian. Wow.
