Everyone knows I’m not funny, but I used to think I was. I tried to be witty and snarky and quick with the cool remark. As I’ve grown older and marginally wiser, I’ve learned I have many other strengths. I like to think they make up for my lack of ‘funny’ for the most part. My one weakness is pun making. I know I’ve mentioned my love of puns before (on my About page, for example). Sometimes I search for new puns to share with my loved ones (and enemies). Other puns are passed on to me from those same friends and family and I deem to necessary to ‘pun it forward.’ Every once in a very long while, I come up with something funny of my own. Inevitably, it’s never quite as funny to others as it was in my mind before I spoke it, but it still merits a chuckle.
As part of my bedtime preparation, I try to make prepare the next day’s meals. I had gathered the lucky ingredients from our cabinets: Nature’s Path whole wheat bread, Trader Joe’s salted creamy peanut butter and roasted pumpkin seeds. All that remained was the sweet to go with the salty. Into the refrigerator I delved in search of my favorite preserves.
I managed to scrape out just enough to make my sandwich and that, along with my joke, made for a very nice lunch.
Unfortunately, when I shouted out to the living room about my preserve predicament, The Huz just didn’t laugh as hard. Ah well, we aren’t all cultured enough to really appreciate some word play.
What’s your favorite flavor of jam or preserves?
