Just be yourself

Mental Health
On yet another first date, already shaping up to be a disaster, Captain Hook reflected bitterly on the advice his only friend and confidant, Smee, had given him: Just be yourself. Hook formed a new plan, which mostly involved him pretending very convincingly that he was someone else. Someone who was enjoying going to a petting zoo and then out for ice cream, if that's what it took.

  1. My companion: "Just be yourself."
    Me: "People tell me that quite a bit, but I feel like I already am being myself. Can you be more specific."
    My companion: [Pause] "Stop trying to be funny; you're not funny."
    Me: "Oh."
