Strange Being

Actually I’m the one who always manages to make the off-center remark. I generally pass it off as a “Briticism” saying Americans have no sense of humor. Usually it’s just that missing link—different upbringing, different references, different school games, and all that implies.

Fortunately, over the years people get used to it. Artists (& writers) get away with being slightly off-the-wall.

Conversely, when Americans start with their football, their TV heroes, and politics, I just look blank. I have absolutely no idea what they’re talking about.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Cousin It.”
