fun v. funny

A few weeks ago I went out to dinner with two friends, and we started discussing how some people are fun, and some people are funny. Let me tell you, I am not a fun person. I'm way to cautious for that--I consider all possible end results before acting. I am not spontaneous, I don't enjoy dancing much, and I think way too often before speaking. Therefore I do not act silly, stupid, or crazy, which generally makes a person fun. Also, because I'm so cautious I have no embarrassing moments that I can recall. See? Not necessarily fun.

But, I *can* be funny--if I'm comfortable enough, and in a group that is not too large. And I'm okay with that. If I could choose, I'd choose to be funny over fun. Mostly because I make myself laugh more than I make anyone else laugh, so at least I keep myself entertained.

What about you?

WOULD YOU RATHER...
be fun
OR
be funny?

I would rather be funny, I think, but mostly because I am really NOT a funny person but have always wanted to be ... Unfortunately, I am really not a fun, person, either, by this definition! ;) Ah, well, we can't have it all! ;)

I'd say funny too. I'm not either fun or funny as far as I know, but my husband has both qualities so he makes up for me!

Wait, is a complete spaz fun? Because if so, that's me. And in a way that's funny too- well, people laughing AT you...does that make you funny? I honestly don't know which I am or would rather be. This one is a pickle.

I would like to be both...can I do that? Personally I think I'm more fun than funny...although I sometimes find myself pretty funny, others don't. Oh well :)

Wow! What a tough one. Why do all of these questions have to be so through provoking? Seriously...I really have to think about these when you ask them.
Let's see.....Hmmmm....I have friends that bring out different ones in me. (You know how people can do that for you sometimes?) Anyhow, I think I'd rather be funny....even though...sometimes I really don't like to have the attention...and I'd like to be just plain fun and spontaneous. I'm with the one who asked if she could be both. Fun and Funny! That's my vote!
