I've decided to give Twitter another go.
It's been over a year since I stopped being ignored on there and the lovely Kate left a message on this post confirming what I'd suspected just might be true.
Sometimes, I AM a little bit funny!!
I do wonder sometimes. I mean, I OFTEN say stuff that I think is hilarious but there are times that I feel slightly unappreciated.
I'll say something really witty to SD and then pause .... No reaction, he just carries on with whatever 'very important' job he's doing. I'll give him a moment just in case he's ruminating my total genius and then I'll repeat it ... Still nothing or, even worse, he'll hurrumph and then just carry on ...
'Did you hear what I said?'
'Don't you think it was funny??'
'WTF does HURRUMPH mean .... ???'
'Was I funny ... did you do a SILENT chortle ... I need you to laugh out loud ... show some facial expression ... collapse in a writhing heap of hysterical mirth or SOMETHING!!!'
SD sighs and carries on with the 'very important' job.
I am deflated ... distraught and downcast ...
I am reminded of the time when I convinced myself that I was slightly mad and 6 out of 8 of my friends agreed except in this case it seems that SD does NOT agree with me and in fact I'm not a bit funny (although he may think I'm slightly mad ...).
I ask him what he DOES see in me then.
'Well' he said, 'you make a fantastic crumble ....'
'Your cakes are great too'
'You've got .... pretty good legs ...??'
I point out that that sounds more like a question than a statement from a man who knows he's sinking fast not to mention that apparently my crumble is fantastic, my cakes are great but my legs only score a 'pretty good' and my personality doesn't even get a mention!
So anyway, I'm going to go and be unappreciated by a more discerning audience for a while, if you want to see what SD's missing then you can find me here.
