I’ve always enjoyed a bit of well meaning sarcastic humor. I’ll never intentionally tell a joke to hurt your feelings, or maliciously make fun of your situation, but a perfectly place snarky joke will make me chuckle every time. Irony, I love it.
For instance, sure babies are miracles, and precious, and beautiful, and all that jazz. But they’re also a lot of work, oftentimes messy, and make tons of noise. The first few weeks caring for a newborn are blissfully exhausting, you can’t deny it.
So when showering your friends and family with love and support during this new and challenging time in their life, how about making a little funny out of it? Lighten the mood a bit, right?
That’s why I love sending (somewhat naughty) congrats cards.
In this digital age, there is just nothing better than getting a greeting card in the daily mail, amidst the piles of bills and junk.
And as always, when you’re giving something just a tad “off color”, it’s best to know your audience well.
