Do you think there are funny moments in life that you can't completely describe on paper? I think about this a lot when I see or hear something funny that isn't your usual slapstick, sarcasm or crudeness. I walk away thinking about how I could duplicate that on paper, but the words don't come to me as easily as I expect. For instance, after walking down the stairs, I turn the corner and my foot hits something. "Sorry," I say to the startled dog without much care (I really hate that dog). My sisters are in the next room and I mutter, "Think I kicked his head." They laugh and so do I. ^ That really isn't that funny to read. I could go more into how I said it, but that in itself is hard to do seeing as how the more I would try to describe my voice, the more it would detract from the humour. But the way I said it is what made it funny... are you kinda getting what I'm saying? It might be the tiniest facial gesture, the way their soldiers move or the tone of their voice that makes something funny, in which you have no hopes of describing. That, and there might be a whole background (inside joke) to a humorous scene that might take too long to tell. Does anyone else run into this trouble? If so, how do you get around it?
