no guarantees, no warranties, and no promises

If you notice my title is a-muse-ing. I don’t make the claim to be hilarious. I won’t promise you I’ll have you rolling on the floor in laughter after reading my blog. I might have you rolling on the floor with abdominal pain, but I won’t promise you this either. I will try to amuse you. I want to make you laugh, I hope that you at least smile–even if it’s only on the inside–however, I don’t promise to make you spray out your coffee through your nose. I can’t make those guarantees.

So, you ask, where is rjlight going with this? This is where I’m going:

How many readers see this button and expect to be more than amused — expect to laugh even? Oh, the pressure. So, I say to myself, do I keep the humor-blogs “society” membership or do I withdraw? Or maybe this button on my blog helps me write better? Or makes me strive to get you to chuckle? Maybe it helps me dig deep into my soul to find one funny nugget that will make you remember that life isn’t all mold and mildew. Or maybe I should clean my bathroom.

    When your finished with all your mold and mildew, remind me that I have my own to consider…ponder….worry over, and perhaps even clean up.

    rj: I think your blog posts vary from the “hmmm” with a smile on my face, to the literal, laugh-out-loud, coffee-spraying hilarious, and everything in between. And it’s all good! No pressure! 😀

    I vote to keep the button, because your posts are thought-provoking and funny on a regular basis. Besides, my current self improvement goal is to stop spraying coffee out of my nose.

    And pressure is what makes diamonds…

    Methinks you worry too much!

    Worst cast scenario, you could tell the one about the duck that walks into a drug store…and it isn’t about chapstick.

    chocolatechic — don’t waste time pondering and wondering the mildew just grows in the meantime

    Momma Knows — thank you but be careful with that nose spraying someone could get hurt.

    Kara — hmmm diamonds huh?

    TSM — Me? Worry? I am so worried that you think I worry.

    Keep the button. I really want to witness Kara’s coffee spraying out of her nose at some point.

    I think the button makes you write better. It’s like a vitamin or a gift from the Wizard of Oz, full of unexplained magic and mysterious power, enhancing your humor while protecting you from colds and flu.

    Besides, it’s got a kitty on it.

    I’ve got this strange pain in my abdomen.

    I think it’s my spleen.

    Brent — the kitty alone makes people smile … I think the pain is maybe your Beezus…
