The Interesting Thoughts of Edward Monkton

This is one of my absolute favorite sites. Edward Monkton is a great ‘humorist’ (I’m hoping that’s the right term?), although I dislike labels. It’s just a fancy way of saying, he’s a very cool guy who has very interesting thoughts that he shares with the rest of us. I love how he manages to fit a kernel of wisdom into a couple of lines of simple prose. And his sketches are marvelous 🙂 Every time I feel low, I can trust Mr. Monkton to ‘perk up my mood’! I am including a few of my favorites here, although it’s a tough choice! They are the property of Mr. Edward Monkton although I wish, (Oh how I wish!), I could say they were mine 🙂

Humor has always been important in my life. It’s helped me get through rough times and depression and sometimes even through anger. This last, especially when I get impatient and irritable with Ishaan. He’ll just say something completely irrelevant to the situation at hand or make a funny face and I feel the beginnings of a smile 🙂 Like at just this very exact moment, he’s brandishing a sharpened pencil and is likely to take out his eye!! So I go grab the pencil, while screaming No! (like that will have ANY effect!)…and what does he do…flings the pencil with all the skill of a fast bowler in my direction (no doubt with every intention of taking out my eye!!), and proceeds to yank at the curtain instead in what I can only assume is an attempt to drag it down to the floor, rod and all, in order to…what? Beats me? Maybe it’s a test of strength, a man thing, you know? Maybe he thinks I’ll stitch him some cool shorts and shirts, a la Maria! Maybe…never mind! Hubby’s come to the rescue and father and son are happily ensconced in front of his PC looking at random stuff on Facebook and eating…yes at the same time! Oh wait…that was 2 seconds ago (that’s hubby’s attention span, when it comes to his darling son :P), now he’s dragged his box of blocks over to my desk, climbed on it and tried to grab my phone, failing which he’s gone back to hitting his head with his little plastic bat (Ishaan I mean ;-))!!!

You tell me…where would I be without a little humor huh?? 😉

If you like what you see, be sure to check out more cool thoughts here!


This might just be my favorite…

This one always makes me smile 🙂

And this one…well, I’ll let you decide!

    1. Glad you liked him Wendy. I have been a fan ever since a friend introduced me to his work a few years ago. I just updated the post with an Ishaan anecdote, in case you missed it.

      Hugs, H.

  1. Very nice. I think I like Mr. Edward Monkton. I love the Are You Normal sketch. Because he’s right. None of us or normal, and that’s what makes us normal.

    Hope you’re having a lovely day, Harsha!
