aborted humor

So, I started to write something humorous yesterday. I have a draft of it stored here, but it doesn't make any sense to me anymore.

Yesterday started out as a pretty good day. I was optimistic about the future, and saw things as 'trending in the right direction' to borrow some buzzwords from work. All of that changed yesterday afternoon. I got frustrated and let it get to me, so that I stuffed it down from work and went home and acted annoyed there.

I think I've probably done this a few hundred times over the past several years, but this might very well be the first time I've noticed it.

So - my humor attempt was aborted, and now I don't even know what I found funny.

It's not that I'm incapable of seeing funny today.. for instance:

Some people are like Slinkys - pretty useless, but they do put a smile on your face when you push them down the stairs.

Okay - maybe that's more morbid than funny.. no, it's funny.

Anyway - yesterday turned out to be not too funny. Today isn't much funnier, but sometimes funny isn't the point.

I'm finally human - I can learn from my mistakes.
