Laughing at your own jokes
I was howling with laughter at an inappropriate fictitious story that I was telling Karina on our drive this week. We were describing a hypothetical scenario involving a train-wreck of a bad public speaking event, and I found our ‘skit’ to be hilarious.
During my gale of hysteria (stemming from my own joke), I remembered someone recently telling me how weird it is when someone laughs at their own joke…
I always laugh at my own jokes, embarrassingly, it is usually louder than the rest of my audience. Perhaps this makes me strange, or perhaps I genuinely find myself funny.
If you can’t laugh at your own jokes, how the heck do you expect others to laugh at them!
Now that’s a peak ethos.
