Birthday

Does this guy look 29? He was asleep by 9:30, so apparently there's some mistake. He's actually 39, the age his students think he is. See the gray hair?
Oh, well. He got a pair of trousers. He is satisfied.

John got a rejection from McSweney's. They said his stuff was well-written, but made them smile instead of laugh. He wasn't trying to be funny. Perhaps he is not smart enough to know when he is being funny. He was glad they thought it well-written.

Twain said the best way to be funny is to not know you're being funny.
