Life Is a Carnival

After my friend jokingly - or not so jokingly - told me he had a random love child (my bad for asking a dumb ass question, right?)...
I advised him that he enjoys "testing me..."  
To which he responded, "I just don't care.  Life is a carnival..." blah blah blah
(whatever... I didn't save the damn conversation so maybe it's not word for word accurate.... )

I'm a huge believer in enjoying life...
...laughing until I'm in tears...
....dancing until my legs ache for days...
....smiling until my cheeks hurt...
And just plain being happy.
I truly love life even when I hate it.




But I try never to amuse myself at someone else's expense.
Unless they really deserve it... that is....   
Meaning, if somehow the other person may get hurt or bothered in some way by my "joke"... I'd prefer not to joke at all. 

Now, we have to be fair. 

Some people are just overly sensitive and take things way too seriously....
But for those of us who aren't... I think it's important to be considerate of others, no matter how much we claim "we don't care."

Catch someone on the wrong day.. and tell them you have a random love child after they ask you a stupid  question...
Would you prefer to just lose that individual permanently over an insensitive joke?

Or would you just say... you just don't care?
