Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

His giddiness was palpable. I could practically spread it on bread and it’ll put Kraft out of business.

In former times, I’d be twisting of envy inside while showing a happy outside. Always the connector, never the connected—that wasn’t just a mantra but a running gag. Except that it hurt when I laughed.

But tonight it was duller, less biting. Another person’s happiness can actually make me happy. And maybe that kind of happiness shouldn’t be shoved aside for envy, but instead be fully embraced. It’s not just a gift for the other but also grace for myself.

Let us just be happy with that.
