Well I’ve gone and done it now. I committed to a speaking engagement with the topic “Using Humor to Overcome Adversity.” When I booked the talk months ago it seemed so far away, but now I have just a few more weeks to prepare, and the problem is, once you start analyzing humor and researching the healing properties of laughter and putting together PowerPoint slides, everything becomes uniquely un-funny. Meh.
Sure, there’s the Darwin Awards and gallows humor, but I need some substance folks, and I need your help. I would like to
exploit leverage my readers’ experiences using humor to overcome adversity. Please, share your stories and insights with me so that I can pretend that I came up with something clever. You’re not just supporting me…you’re putting food in my cats’ mouths and getting me out of Dan’s hair. This is important, so please give till it hurts.
