I realized recently that I need to make a career change.
I should be a stand-up comedian.
I never thought I was all that funny, but my kid has proven me wrong. According to her, I'm hilarious even when I'm not trying. (Like when I'm really not trying. Like when I'm just sitting there eating a sandwich and not even looking at her.)
It's probably one of the very best things about parenting. It makes me feel pretty good about myself that I can make her smile and laugh with the same old jokes.
Eh, I guess my stand-up career can wait. Who needs a crowd full of laughter when I get to see this every day?
