Where's the Funny?

I realize that my posts the last couple of days have been, well let's just say "unfunny." I know you are all super concerned that I am changing the genre of my blog and from now on I am only going to write poignant stories about milestones and mommy moments and you might have to stop coming in fear of throwing up or getting a cavity from all the sweet, tender moments.

Don't worry; it ain't gonna happen my peeps.

I just haven't been feeling very funny lately. Perhaps it is because of the neverending chain of bummers that comprise my life lately. Such as the lyme disease. Such as the one a.m. wakeup calls to evacuate monsters from the little one's bedroom. Such as the fact that I have so much work to do that I am starting to seriously break out into cold sweats when I look at my computer. So maybe all that stuff is taking over my brain and shoving out the funny stuff, eliminating my capacity for creating humorous blog posts and forcing people to squirt various fluids from their nose (or fart, as in Jamie's case).

I really like doing that, you know.

So today I would like to beg for some funny from my readers. What would you like me to write about? What do you think would be so hilarious to read about me that it would make you squirt something or pass gas? I am open to anything except stories about the first time I got my period or anything that involves me sharing past sexual experiences with men other than my husband (because there were no other men, come on, what do you think I am a SLUT?)

I really need some help people. Maybe your ideas will spark up the dormant funny quadrant in my brain and help me get you laughing again on my own. Think of it as blog Viagra (or Cialis, or whichever one works best).

Yes, my name is Petra and I have funny blogging dysfunction. I'm not afraid to admit it, because the first step is recognizing that you have a problem.

And I have learned that it is always best to let people help you when you are having a problem.
