Seriously?

Filed under: Stuff I Just Wanted To Say — lbej @ 11:20

People don’t like people who take themselves too seriously.  People who take themselves too seriously know that other people don’t like people who take themselves too seriously and so they make a point of being facetiously self-deprecating to show how seriously they don’t take themselves.  But you have to know you take yourself too seriously if it’s serious business whether or not people think you take yourself too seriously.  You know the dude I’m talking about.  He’ll say something that seems to call attention to a flaw in a humorous way, but he definitely does not laugh when everyone else does.   People laugh at their own jokes, funny or not funny, unless they’re professional comedians or they’re not really joking.  You’re just like, oh this dude is so deadpan, but he’s not.  He’s just so serious that he doesn’t want to seem serious.  He hurts a lot inside, so you should maybe give him a hug.  Not a startling hug, though, because you know how it goes with surprising animals in pain.
