In which I make myself laugh, a lot

I have loads of faults, truly I could do a daily post of what is wrong with me and you'd still be reading at Christmas. One of my less endearing traits is my insistence on thinking I'm funny, genuinely I think I am hysterical. And I laugh at my own jokes, a lot.

On Monday, I was visiting my best friends dad, lovely bloke he is and he's reading a book about World War 2.

"Are you enjoying your book?" I asked him in a very polite tone and his reply of
"I've just started it" quickly followed up with "would you like to borrow it" in a slightly hopeful tone made me think not. And before I could stop myself, I hear these words coming out of my mouth " no thanks, I know how it ends"

and then I collapsed in hoots of laughter, and I'm still laughing about it now.

Aw, you had to be there

I think it's funny too, and I wasn't there either! I just don't understand why people think it's rude to laugh at one's own jokes - it's cheap entertainment, after all.

It is funny though! My husband thought he was funny too - one of his most endearing habits was cracking up halfway through telling a joke and then only being able to finish it in gasps because he was ROFLOL.

sorry, could you explain it again and I might get it? You're the funny one, I'm the one that needs it explaining 25 times and you've lost the will to live as I start to laugh. Tis funny though, do you plan to milk it over the next few dinner parties?!

I can never remember the punchlines of jokes . I really admire people who can
