“Awkward Laughter” is what happens when you let a klutzy freak magnet (that’s me) loose on the world and then give her a platform to write about it.
My love of telling tales about the kooky happenings of everyday life began pre-kindergaten:
“My mommy ran me over with her car.” – Me, age 4
I dropped that one liner on a random woman in the mall as my poor mother cringed nearby. (To be clear, she didn’t run me over intentionally.)
My words transformed that stranger into a captive audience, and I was hooked. I’ve been sharing stories ever since.
I hope you’ll find more than a few of them entertaining and look forward to hearing from you. Cheers! – Kim
Who I Am
I’m a marketing and PR professional with former lives as a TV journalist, a computer consultant, and even an insurance auditor. Home is in Gainesville, Florida, (Go Gators!) but I’ve lived everywhere from Washington, DC, and Northern Maine to hotels across the U.S.
Why I Write
I’ve been a word nerd and wannabe novelist for as long as I can remember. I started this blog to become a more disciplined writer and because I truly believe that most things in life are humorous, even when they shouldn’t be.

Hi Kim, nice to meet you, and to explore your blog, and laugh, awkwardly, at your tales 🙂
I know it’s been ages (no internet for a while) but thanks for the ‘like’ on the post about Bolivia. I’m glad you enjoyed it. Cheers, Alison

Given all of your travels, I can understand the lack of Internet access. Your photos are amazing and the stories too!

Haha! I loved your story about telling a stranger your mom ran you over! LOL. Not for your mom, though! Anywho, I live in FL too! Tampa, to be exact. I love your blog and I look forward to reading more!!

Ha! I was so excited when I read you lived in Tampa. Strange how a state as large as Florida can feel like “the neighborhood” in blogging. I look forward to reading more of your blog too!

Ya, Kim! We’re not too far away from each other at all! =) Especially since WordPress is international, whenever I see someone is located in FL, I have to give a shout-out! ❤
