Daily Prompt: Ha Ha Ha
Tell us a joke! Knock-knock joke, long story with a unexpected punchline, great zinger — all jokes are welcome!
A joke? Oh wow! That’s harder than my uncle’s egg.
I’m not a very good joker, nor jokee. But I’m not a total dud, I hope. There are some jokes that I would find funny, but most of the ones that I know are just lame.
How about a funny story instead?
Ok, I have never hidden the fact that I’m gay, but I don’t announce it to everyone I meet either… “Hey, I’m Yashie and I’m gay…” I don’t think so.
Anyway, I was running around the office one time getting some stuff together for a gift basket when I heard a relatively new co-worker looking for me. I called out his name from inside the storeroom to let him know where I was. Then he said jokingly “Hey Yasmin, get out of the closet!” So I yelled back, “I already am!” The others who knew I was gay and heard the exchange started laughing. He just scratched his head seeing that I was still inside the closet. Minutes later, after he got the joke, chuckled and said “Touché! But, I totally knew you were gay.” Duh!
My goodness that was totally lame reading it after the fact, but that’s all I could conjure from my humorless head.
