What’s the best (or rather ,worst ) backhanded compliment you ever received? If you can’t think of any—when’s the last time someone paid you a compliment you actually didn’t deserve?
When I first came to Montreal, my husband invited his friends to dinner. My husband was unaware of my cooking skills, he therefore cooked everything himself.
His friends enjoyed the food, before they left, they said, “thank you for the excellent food, you are such a good cook.”
I felt very uncomfortable I knew I did not cook anything, I replied, “thank you, but my husband cooked everything!”
Do you consider yourself funny?What role does humor play in your life? Who’s the funniest person you know?
Sometimes I think I am funny. I love humor as long as it’s not hurting someone. The funniest person I know was Bob Hope,he was so good. The day he died it seemed the world of humor died with him.
There are times I find myself among a group of people working like machines, I tell them, “come on people, have some fun, life is not all work and no humor,” some get it others do not.
