I wish I were ha-ha funny, but my sense of humor's more wry. A co-worker used to say I was "too cool for school" which I took as a compliment, until I finally looked it up one day; meh, English wasn't his first language, so he probably didn't get me.
I enjoy life's absurdities, and have no problem laughing at myself. The stand-up guy that I am, once, I offered to help a mother by carrying her kid stroller down a flight of stairs. Did I mention I'm athletic, but a bit klutzy? And my shoes that day were a little too big and clunky. So, I made it down 96% of the way without any drama. I thought I was on the last step before the platform -- can't see much with a baby stroller in the way -- but it was actually two steps away. When you miss a step, many thoughts go through your head. The one I remember was "Oh, ----!" I stumbled and bumbled, but that kid never touched the ground. Also, I'm a quick learner, so you'll never catch me helping a damsel in distress again.
Grew up in NYC, and don't get it when people only call Manhattan "The City" as if everything else doesn't matter. Hey, what about Queens?! Seriously.
Costco is my all-time favorite store. Not sure I save a ton of money buying giant bags of craisins, but got to love snack samples. Ok, so I’m easy to please.
Lately, I've been thinking about getting a puppy. Got the breed and a name picked out in my head, but still trying to convince myself that I have the time and space for a dog in my life. Mind you the last time I had a pet was as a kid, and my track record with goldfish was quite poor. I either killed with kindness by overfeeding them, or they were doomed no matter what because they came from a generic pet store/fish mill. (I hope I don't sound like jerk because if I really lost my hypothetical puppy, I'd be crushed.)
