Some of us despise pranks.
Sure, sometimes we might just not find them funny.
However, I think that I personally don’t like them when or if they make me embarrassed because I didn’t get it, or confused because I can’t tell if it is a joke or not.
Not much fun in this attitude. How can we create more lightness in our lives to enjoy a prank when it is fun and funny?
For an overly serious person (me), I found this recent book on humor actually quite helpful to understand it, use it, and to feel more confident that it’s okay if I don’t ‘get’ something. Sometimes humor isn’t meant for everyone.
