It’s true. I am most excellent at self-depreciation. I can criticize myself like nobody’s business. I got that shit down to a science. Quite honestly, I’ve spent most of the last few months recognizing all of the ways that I suck in addition to all the ways I already knew I sucked. The list has become rather long.
You know what, though? I’m tired of sifting through all of this suckage. It sucks.
So thank you Daily Post for giving me a reason to look at all of the positive things I am and can do. I don’t do that often enough. I can never pick one thing out of many as my favorite for anything, and this is no exception, so I will make a list of all the ways I fucking rule. Because that would kick ass and stuph™. And you all know how much I love stuph™.
And here we go!!!
1. I’m fucking funny. I know this because people laugh at me. They laugh at the things I do. They laugh at the things I say. Sometimes they even laugh at the things I do or say to purposely make them laugh. Sometimes it’s just because I did something stupid. I don’t care. I like to make people laugh, however I can do it. And I’m normally pretty damned good at it. Hell, sometimes I even make myself laugh. That takes talent.
2. I’m a good listener. I genuinely care about people and their problems. I like to help them through things, even if the only thing I do is let them vent. I fancy myself a problem solver and like to help people with their problems if I can.
3. I’m loyal. Once I love you (romantically or platonically) I’ve got your back. I’ll do anything for you. Need help moving? I’m there. Need a shoulder to cry on? I’m there. Need a drinking buddy? I’m there in a fucking heartbeat. Need your computer fixed? Stand in line, I’ll get to it eventually.
4. I’m a great father. I know I’m not perfect, and I definitely have things to work on, but nobody, and I mean nobody, loves their children as much as I love mine. There is absolutely NOTHING I wouldn’t do for them. I love spending time with them, playing with them, and teaching them. Most of all, I love watching them grow. It’s amazing to me how the twins have turned from newborn babies to infants, to toddlers, to small children, and finally into young men. I have imparted on them the values I hold most dear and it seems that they have taken them to heart. They are caring, compassionate, and smart young men and I’m so proud of what they’ve accomplished and all that they will accomplish. I know no matter what they choose to do I will always be proud of what they have become and will become.
Well, there you are, dearest readers (I’m so glad that I can make that a plural noun finally). Those are the most favoritest things I like about myself.
What about you, dearest readers? What is the most bestest thing you like about you?
