It’s not that easy to make jokes and tell amusing stories when the topic seems serious for your audience. Even such seemingly harmless topic as family life can touch the feelings of some sensible people. Having faced this problem, I found out that most people reacted calmly on such jokes. Though, it’s better to start the real tickling story from the neutral remarks on the topic. That’s how I see this approach.
This amazing story happened to me one sunny day. I came back home and found a dog sitting in front of my door. I opened the door and invited him to come in, just for fun. Imagine my surprise when the dog actually moved to my apartment. This well-fed, clean, but tired dog ate some food, paved his way to the corner of my room and slept for several hours. He woke up and went away. The next day he came again. We've repeated the same “procedure” with food and nice daytime sleep and a few hours ago the dog went away.
It was obvious that my mysterious friend had the owner and he went back home after visiting me. When the same story repeated again and again, I became curious about the owner of this dog and the reason why I had this visitor every day. So, I wrote a note and fastened it to the dog’s collar. I wrote: “Hello! Your charming dog visits me every day. He has a nice daytime sleep in my house and goes away. I don’t mind his company. I would like to know the name of my new friend.”
The next day the dog came again, a new note was fastened to his collar. I read the following: “Hi! The dog’s name is Buddy. The point is that he lives in a family with four little children, your house is the only place where he can sleep. Can I come with him someday? I also need some daytime sleep. ”
Looks like it’s a challenging task to have a big family. Hold on, dear parents of numerous kids!”
Hopefully, people who are fond of telling tickling stories will find the way of making fun out of seriousness and the audience will enjoy such humor. Laugh and don’t take serious things too close, there is always space for a smile in our so serious world!
