The rules posted at MustBeGuida are of a general nature and I hope of interest and value to everyone. This rule is not the case. Oh, sure, you should follow it, but I'm not posting it for you. I am posting it for me.
Chances are pretty good that if you are reading this, you know me. And I will say, with no false modesty, that I am the funniest person you personally know. (Note to family: Same to you.) I have a very quick wit and I come up with surprising things that make people laugh. This is one of the gifts with which God has blessed me.
Another gift with which I have been blessed is friends and a Pastor who look out for my best interest. The phrase often heard was "Use your filter" or "You know, you said that out loud." To them I say, "thank you." I may not always implement my filter as they would like, but I have a new mantra when responding with a rapier-like retort. Secondly, did I get the laugh? But firstly, did anyone get hurt? If I can respond yes and no, accordingly (you figure it out), then the joke was a success. With this mantra, I am finding a lot less for which I need to apologize.
Thank you and go (joke deleted for fear of offending).
See how it works?
