I was reading Albert’s newest blog and it was spot on. It kind of spurred my thoughts into the telling of a very short fictional story…
The Best Political Joke
I am always nervous when I go on stage.
I ask my self, Who knows the mood of this crowd? What if I bomb?
I take a deep breath and I walk out and stand under the spot light. The crowd seems alive and there are loud cheers. I feel my confidence grow.
"Thank you. It’s good to be here. I was going to start tonight off with some good political jokes but it looks like all the good ones were elected…"
I hear a burst of laughter, hand claps and whistles. The nervousness passes. It will be a good night…
