Sure I'm Funny, Honest

I'm witty, I know I am. And not just in a room full of my own relatives, either. But I'm realizing most of my blog posts seem dry and bland. Ack, what was that?! *dives under desk, burying head and limbs* Wha? Jeez, I thought the house was under attack! *smoothes hair, straightens collar* But it was just my gassy four-year-old. Her fluffs always start out delicately enough, but when she leans back it reverberates loudly across her wooden stool like gunfire. Cripes.

Anyway, I got to thinking about how most of my posts have been straight-laced and to the point. And there's nothing wrong with that. But I do write a humor column about motherhood, and that sort of voice hasn't made much of an appearance here. I shall try to bring more oomph, more funny ha-ha to Something She Wrote.

It's not that I'm vowing to become the next great Ellen, because I'm not that funny. And I do want to continue discussing writing in general terms. But I want people to visit me and perhaps leave with a tip and a laugh. So I guess I'm still tweaking the feel of my blog.

Today's tip: Never end a sentence with a preposition.

Today's laugh: Knock, knock. <Who's there?> The interrupting cow. <The interrupting co--> MOO!

Ok, lame, I know. I'll work on the knock knock jokes...

Bring on the funny! I know it's hard to be 'on' when you don't feel like it. I'm trying to keep mine humorous and there's days I just have nothing!
