In personal ads, it’s not surprising to someone advertising GSOH–a good sense of humor. I see TV ads promoting services like eHarmony or Match.com. I know from the pace of those kinds of services that a gentleman needs to represent that he is a good guy in order to attract a mate.
To start the New Year with something new on the horizon, I have been doing a free ten-day course from WordPress called Developing Your Eye–I am a week late, but mostly on schedule. Today I’m doing the exercise for the eighth day of the course.
The theme of today’s photo is “treasure.” I reflected on this and realized I could take a photo both literal and figurative. I photographed a clown ornament at which I regularly gaze. The clown was given to me by a dear friend, and it both reminds me of friendship and to remember the humor in life. I admit I am not a keen fan of comedy nor see much mirth in day-to-day life, but some days the best times I have are when I again find a reason to laugh.
The clown is playing the “world’s smallest violin,” that joke, and I think of that from my father’s perspective. As to make your bed and lie in it.
I realize the clown is a touch creepy, I suppose, but reflecting on “treasure” I think the ability to laugh is dear and also that if I have tried anything at an evocative decor the clown in the photo is among what I cherish most.
I’m not a funny individual, and I can’t put the abbreviation in GSOH across the Internet or in the newspaper.
Remember that the personals can sink you.
