Day 7: What makes you laugh?

You know, I feel like a truly horrible human being for saying this but truthfully, I have a seriously dark, sometimes very depraved sense of humour. It never used to be something that I had, or that I was proud of, and yet as time has gone on, I’ve come to realise that it’s quite a pleasure to behold. 

When we’re young, we’re taught the right things to say, how to treat people, how not to say anything if we can’t be nice to others, and so on. Many of us grow up believing that we shouldn’t say bad things and we shouldn’t think bad things, but what about when the world screws you over? What about when life really hurts?

For a long time, I used to get dark thoughts and I thought that it was just me. I’d imagine myself, say, jumping in front of a bus during a period of high stress and I would get really anxious about thinking these things. I’d keep myself to myself, forcing myself to only think and say nice things. I really believed that I was different from everyone. I really believed that I was truly horrible.

But then I found out that I’m not!

The first time that I realised that it’s okay to be a horrible human being was when my brother introduced me to Cards Against Humanity. I was really afraid of being offended or worse yet, of being offensive. I was really afraid of going too far and of my mother wondering what kind of monster she had created.

But it turns out that she didn’t, and better yet, I now have ALL of the expansion packs thanks to my family and friends. I told you, I’m an absolutely horrendous person!

Oh sure, Mum calls me a “sick bitch” from time to time, but it’s said with affection, as a term of endearment, and to be honest, it’s lovingly embraced. Matt shares my sense of humour too, it’s part of what makes us, us. 

“I am so going to hell…” he laughs. 

“I’ll see you down there, then?” I grin in reply.

So if you have a dark sense of humour too, do come say hi – chances are good that we’ll get along just fine!

That’s it from me for today Twisties! Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for my next Bloganuary post!

Until next time. 

Stay safe & have fun,

Helen xx
