That "here" is everywhere. And that's why our late night comics and those who turn the news upside down are so valued. Without them humor would likely not enter our lives, at least those of us who are adults.
Because of social media and litigation, political correctness has hardened into a muzzle on all talk. There's no joking around or even any witty remarks on the elevator I ride several times a day. People are too scared to make light of whatever, then be chastised in public. "That was insensitive" I was told four years ago on the way up and that was that. My commentary has been restricted the weather, with no humor on the side.
On Facebook, where I hang out a lot with former college friends, we are serious, all the time. We lighten up about guilty pleasures like butter-cream cake frosting we can no longer eat but serve to the children in our lives. About that we can make a little fun.
At group meetings I am all gravitas. I have to be. Otherwise I would be assessed as a lightweight who does not understand the serious nature of life in the 21st century.
Do I miss the ha-ha-ha? I can't even remember how it was.
