I'M NOT FUNNY. WHAT I AM IS BRAVE.
Tomorrow, August 6, 2011 marks what would've been the 100th birthday of Lucille Ball, a woman who has made millions of us laugh until we cried. Being funny not only takes skill and talent but it's also hard. (Just ask all of us who aren't.) It takes guts to let go and let loose and put yourself out there knowing you might get the laugh but also knowing there's a chance you're going to get laughed at.
Hmm, sounds a bit like writing, doesn't it?
So, in honor of this funny and brave woman, and in honor of one of my favorite episodes of I Love Lucy, I'm going to help myself to some chocolate. Hopefully, not as much as went by on that conveyor belt...
