Thread: Story Idea

Threaded View

    I could see this being funnier if it was told from the man's point of view. It would make me chuckle to read him having grumpy, self-deprecating thoughts about it.

    But if it was from her point of view, yeah, I could see it easily crossing over into sounding mean-spirited.

    Another way would be to just write it with no conscious attempt at being funny, and just let it be a background fact in the larger story. By that I mean I think it could also easily be pushed too hard and lose its humor.

    Then again, if we saw a real version of what you had in mind, maybe it would work. It's hard to judge what's funny without reading the actual story.
