Laugh Track

A student who sometimes reads my blog suggests that, as the biking video suggests, I seem to regard my life as having a sitcom quality, as being a source of amusement (if only to myself), that my good-natured shortcomings are to some degree an appropriate subject for laughter.

This posture does little for my dignity, he suggests, although it does make me approachable, and there may be pedagogical value in that. In short, I do not take myself too seriously, as least as I choose to present myself publicly. This attitude may be constitutional rather than affected. Perhaps, I should keep an eye on this quality, he suggests.
