Stupidity and Me

100 words –

Early on in my life, I found that stupidity was good for laughs.

I embraced stupidity as my excuse for going on risky adventures and going where sane people feared to go. My stupid grin, honed since I was five after realizing it got laughs, helps me get through my days.

Stupidity conveys humility to unsuspecting observers unaware that it can be feigned for effect. Stupidity can be a cloak worn by the wise with all- knowing eyes. A perfect disguise.

Then there is sheer stupidity, a condition unencumbered by any excuse other than a person is born with it.
