I can do it. Honest.

If you know me, and I hope you don't, you know I don't write very often. As a child, I always wanted to be a writer, but as my father pointed out, I just didn't do any writing. Writing, as everyone will tell you, is really-eely hard. Well, not exactly hard. I guess it's more painful than hard. Anyway, I never wrote anything or improved my skills because writing was painful to do.

Years later, I tried to push my writing skills along and, spurred on by a late night inspiration and a regular train trip with no internet access, found myself writing a lot. The result? A couple dozen depressing, moralistic tales. Sure, my family liked them, but they all thought I'd do better if I was working on better material. In other words, write funnier stuff.


So, here I am trying to find my funny side. Once a week I will try to write something, anything funny.

Is this funny yet? No? Shoot, I'm already in trouble. Um....


Hahahahahahahahaha! That never gets old.

Other than the wierd rant about Christmas presents (or maybe it's just me who doesn't get the joke), I think you are VERY funny! Now this is something that people are going to enjoy reading. Way to go, Matthew!
