Change Your Preposition, Change Your Funny

Nobody likes being laughed at, except maybe comedians. So, I decided to change things up a bit. I’ll say, “I’m not laughing at you.” Then I’ll pause. The other person will usually, say something about me laughing with them. I’ll cut them off… “No. I’m not laughing with you either. I’m laughing around you.” LOL

Simply changing the preposition can make that statement really funny:

I’m laughing within you

I’m laughing above you

I’m laughing beside you

I’m laughing aboard you

I’m laughing beyond you

I’m laughing from you

I’m laughing near you

I’m laughing through you

I’m laughing via you

It’s a lot of English nerdy fun 😀


What Would My Clone Do?

I had a lot on my mind today. Between the myriad ideas at work (new products, new advertising opportunities, improving customer service, etc.) and the questions I face in my personal life, I found myself in a state of self discovery. So, I asked myself a very simple question: What Would My Clone Do?

Not hampered by the events of every day life: cold shower water in the morning, burning toast, traffic, and waiting in line at lunch… My clone would have a much clearer head than I during times of stress. He would be able to make sold decisions during times of crisis, like choosing between watching two equally great prime-time television shows. So, I find peace knowing that my clone is always there for me, calm and ready to take on whatever pressures may come my way (like when I’m running late to a massage appointment).
