It's nice when people are nice enough to say it is great I get to do what I love, comedy writing, for a living. But there is a part of me that wants to say;
"By great you mean writing all day - while even my close friends make jokes about me watching soap operas in a ratty yellow terrycloth bathrobe - and then having 95% rejected by people with no discernible sense of humor?"
"And then when I do get paid, it is less than I deserve and way less than I need? Well, then, yeah, sure, it is great I get to do what I love for a living. "
