humor ain’t so humorous

Being humorous is difficult. 

Currently, I’m working on a humorous and/or satirical piece for a course titled “The Essay.” Every two weeks or so we are asked to compose an essay pertaining to other essays that we have read. This week, I find myself with my fingers merely hovering over the keyboard with nothing to say but “I don’t know how to be funny.” 

Maybe that is all my essay will be. 

There is humor in that … right?!
