Look On The Lighter Side...
You know you have a sense of humour when you can take a
very serious situation that at times can hit a very raw
nerve and laugh at it...Kinda like touching a face that has
been stripped of skin revealing tender flesh. I have this
character that I have used to help ease many a tension and
add a lighter note to many a situation..I've prided this
character in a way that at times she is real and very much
mine. Maybe some of her is me..But I'd prefer to think
she's just a deliciously fun extension of my daggy nature.
A good friend of mine asked if she could have a go at using
good ol Jenny for a news report and yes, I was hesitant as
I must say a character you develop over years is very much
your own, a part of you. And you worry they will go ahead
and do it better than you ever could. But I went ahead and
said yes and this is what my very good friend Melissa
produced. We both shared a laugh that no one else can share
with you unless they are in the same situation And I must
say..I laughed, and laughed and laughed...But I can't post
it anywhere else, but here for it's very much inhouse and
no one really much will understand it, but I feel it needs
to be out someplace else other than locked away in my
files. And it reads like a true Jenny Sherwaffle..Couldn't
have done it better myself...
