My skin just gets thinner and thinner during the weekends when all my family are together and I get just a little bit touchy when I manage to say something unintentionally funny yet again and everyone falls about laughing! In the main I do manage to laugh along with them, but I don't always have the fortitude to keep laughing.
But do you know what really grates sometimes? Being told that "we are laughing with you not at you", how the heck do you know that I am not really insulted by this particular round of laughter? Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) I do manage to laugh along with them most of the time, which is why I suppose it must seem rather a change of attitude to occasionally (and rather suddenly) turn grumpy, but I just can't take it allll the time!
Anyway, either I have to regrow that thicker skin or stop saying such silly things! And do you know, I can't even think of anything silly that I recently said so that you can all laugh
