What do you fear and what is funny?

16 Jun 2023

A few months ago, I wrote a blog that had two topics, so I am trying it again. You can reply to one or both. 

Silly or funny or both?

A 4-year-old me that she was a million times funnier than me and that silly and funny were the same. Silly to young children are toilet words, people falling over and wearing silly hats, or pretending to eat a toy!!

I think you can be silly without being funny and funny without being silly. I have read and found that being silly or funny for mental health is helpful. I have found humour and being silly and finding my inner child helps. 

Do you think there is a difference between silly and funny and if so, what is it? Do you think being funny and/or silly helps your mental health in any way?

What do you fear the most?

The answers from people I know included:

Tomatoes and being  tired

Hairdressers and dentists




Tall things that move.

Squishy things

Noises at night



Just a start so what do you fear the most and why?
