I wrote last week that I enjoy folks who bring a sense of humor to the table. I think it's crucial you have at least one person in your life who makes you not only laugh, but forces you to clutch your side wondering what just shot out of your nose. For me, I actually prefer this trait over compassion or encouragement.
Here's a non-comprehensive list of my friends, both in real life and perhaps only in my mind, who are required reading in the classroom of laughter:
1. Cari Kates: Some have told us if they had friends like us, then they'd want to kill themselves. Others have said we should charge for the show. If you live in the central California valley, you should buy her Chick-Fil-A in hopes of being her friend.
2. Joel McHale: I can't decide if it's his portrayal of the "Male Nurse" or his affection for Lou, the chihuahua. No matter, his sarcasm had me at "REALITY SHOW CLIP TIME."
3. Tina Fey: We would be friends.There's no doubt. But I would always feel inferior due to her sharp wit and therefore be forced to develop other valuable traits, like aggreeableness or heat ray vision.
4. Joseph Kinnaird: You know those lines that pop up between your eyebrows when someone says something incredulous? Mine are named Joe and Willy. But I'm willing to Botox to keep laughing.
5. Heather Armstrong: She's all things I'm not - a wife, a mother, and a recovering Mormon. Differences aside, her blog is worth every golden egg she's paid to write it.
6. Austin Cranford: I wish I could link you to Austin's web profile, website, or webcam - but he can only truly be appreciated in person. He gives OCD a funny name.
Who in your real life or Tivo life is hilarious?
