Humor Hilarity HiJinks
A few weeks ago I was reading an announcement of a new book by Jerry Seinfeld. I have long appreciated his humor. Like many things in life, humor is subjective. I understand his style may not be the right fit for everyone.
I was a bit intrigued but not yet ready to make that purchase. I instead went on a search of previous books he had written. I found Sein Language written in the 1990s.
This would have been the time of his namesake television show which introduced him and many of his phrases to a wider audience. Yada Yada Yada. Regifting. The low talker. Many others. I reserved a copy from the library along with two other books by humorists I have enjoyed over the years.
Apparently I had humor on my mind as David Sedaris was also one of my choices. He is an essayist and a clever writer I first heard on This American Life on National Public Radio. Witty. Quirky. Another good fit for me but I remain well aware that he is not for everyone.
Halloween is rapidly approaching. Spooky. Frightening. All sorts of hijinks. It's never been a favorite holiday of mine. Even as a kid although I did like and still enjoy the creativity.
Like humor, the appeal of Halloween, and the related novelty of the day, is "lost" on me - definitely not the right fit.
As for the books, I am still laughing to myself while occasionally chortling and enjoying the stories told. And there's nothing wrong with that.
