Journal Entry


Most of my weekend was spent in rooms full of AA and Al Anon members. hearing good talk, and getting reacquainted with 12 Step programs.  I may have found an Al Anon sponsor!

My hearing aids worked well, but i still missed most of the humor.  I thought i had a pretty good sense of humor; but nowadays i usually miss the joke.  What is that about?

Weary and hyped, i badly need sleep.

I find humour often has to do with themes of certain people or shows on TV or stuff that is very short-lived and "current". Therefore if somebody isn't "up to date" in society, s/he wouldn't get many of the jokes. It's not necessarily something that has to do with you as a person or something that changed within you.

Yes exactly. Lots of things people laugh at are primarily signals to laugh, which must be known.

Yes. But is also possible that i am temporarily unable to the humor in many things. People new to 12 step programs often say that one of the things most mysterious to them was how much laughter there was.

I agree with Mia about humour. Sometimes it's too "modern" for me to comprehend!

Did you get decent sleep last night? Are you getting it now?

No, i have reverted to my youthful habit of staying up way too late at night to get enough hours of sleep (six or seven). I intend to get a little discipline in my life which will include regular hours for retiring and rising.

Alas. I hope you'll sleep in when you need.
