I always wanted to be funny.
Yet I never was.
I always thought I was.
But I wasn’t.
I wish I would have realized that earlier.
Realized that I’m not as funny as I think I am.
Maybe then I wouldn’t have made a fool out of myself for so long.
One thing I don’t understand is how my family and my friends could stand by me.
Without saying a word.
Did they think I was funny?
I highly doubt it.
Yet they kept encouraging me to do my thing.
Maybe they thought I would be funny, one day.
But that’s a far-fetched thought since I was never funny.
I know they must have known I wasn’t funny.
I know this.
And yet they stood by me.
Told me that I was doing good.
Went to every one of my shows.
They’re good friends, I’ll give them that.
But they’re not very good at giving you career advice.
