Being Witty ! Answered

Wittyness eh?

Its a type of intulectual humor. You have to be sharp, quick and say the funny remark at the right time! They say its charming, and people notice that about you.....eventually*.

I absoloutly LOVE IT.

I can be witty.....
But only with my friends. Generally im comfortable around them. But I can't use my wit with new people i meet, or people i don't know very well. : (
Mostly im to slow, or i can't think of any remarks to make. ( any that i think are funny)

What do you guys think? any tips?

I know some of you on instructables are witty and have smart humour,......i can tell from your comments. Lol.

Then you would be drunk.

By the way, calling someone in Chinese (sui nao,water on the brain) means there is a screw loose. Dian nao,electric brain on the other hand means computer.

If you can't take the heat, then you have to get out of the kitchen...or use sunblock and tanning lotion. I wanted a cold case so I stuck it in the fridge.

Reply 12 years ago

Well, my swell is around the midriff, and I look like I am 8 months pregnant (and have been now for a good 6 years, so I don't want to hear from those that carry this kind of weight for only a few months before giving birth, how no man can understand....believe me, I know). I have actually lost about 10 lbs though since my operation, so I am slowly reducing the swell and can actually put my shoes on without overstraining (like I have been doing for the past 6 years). If you wish for my body, you can have any of the extra I have ;-)
