Life is Funny [35]

This all started way back when I was in college.  A few of my friends and I had a series of strange things happen to us on a particular day in July, and somehow we were able to find the humor in that.  While sitting in a shady diner at around three in the morning, I decided to write them out on a napkin just so we can someday look at it and laugh.  Someone then said, “Put it on your blog!” and since I was a novice blogger, and looking for ideas, this seemed plausible.  I never thought it would make it past that one particular post I put on the blog almost six years ago, but somehow it did.  I think I received the most feedback on “Life is Funny” than I ever did on anything else, and hence this series was born. 

If you are a regular reader, you know what I mean. If you are new to the blog, these are true quotes and incidents from the people I interact with.  Please feel free to dig into the archives by clicking on “Funny Quotes” on the menu bar above.  I hope you have as much fun reading them as I have compiling them.  Thank you for sharing with me my silly life.
