If you want an elegant, perfect posture guest for your tea party, don't send me an invitation. I'm too much of a goofball type who likes to entertain my companions with a joke here and there. I have always had this inclination to make people laugh or raise an eyebrow at my shenanigans. (I just love that word: shenanigans. Images of rascally leprechauns come to my mind.) As a kid, I loved the shenanigans of the Carol Burnett crew. Right up my alley. Whether my Kelly form of entertainment is any good is up to my sometimes captive audience (sorry family, friends and blogging buddies!).
When out socializing or hanging out at the bus stop, I like to stir things up with a few jokes or light humor. If I want to be very serious, I'll turn on the news. If I want the positive energy of fellowship, I'll put on my entertainer's hat. I'm humming the song to myself: "Let me entertain you..."
Sounds like I'm a good candidate for a revival of The Gong Show. Don't you think?
