Weekly Assignment

It's time for Mama Kat's weekly assignment again! This week, I chose the following prompt: What is a common misconception about you? Oh man, do I need to narrow it down? I mean, some people think I'm pompus, mentally challenged, genious, witty, non-caring, overcaring ... basically, it runs the gamet. I'm probably somewhere inbetween on all of these.

However, because I love to laugh, tell jokes, and goof off, there are many people who think that I can never be serious. Although, I'm not one who thrives when he's serious, there are times when I can be serious - especially when it comes friends, family and work. There have been many situations (too many, in fact, to even put on this blog) where I have been relied upon to be a good friend or family member - when a critical situation has occured, and "funny-Los" has to give way to "serious-Los." There have been plenty of times when we've hit crunch-time at work (again, probably too many to even list), and I've had to put on my "serious" hat. I am more than capable of doing this, and I've realized through the years that there is enough room in this world for both ... however, both need to be done in moderation.

Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever seen "serious Los", but that sounds like a good thing. I'd prefer the knuckle-head Los over the other any time.

People think you're mentally challenged and genius? Props to you on covering both bases!

I remember that one day in late July during a football catch in the parking lot. Joe P over thru the football to LOS, LOS had to walk and pick it up. He had that what the fuck Joe P. serious look in his eyes. That was nothing to laugh about.

"Incessantly flatulent" is apparently not a misconception.

There is an old southern expression, about a car and only three wheels...when we are not all balenced in life, it's like drivin on a flat...

I heart you for all your good, bad and such qualities. Wouldn't have you any other way!

I think since I know you through Blogging, I have seen enough of both of your sides, but I bet in real life, you are just a laugh a minute! (You know, unless there's ham involved. :P)
