1. Having a sophisticated sense of humor.
I used to be so proud of my oh-so-subtle jokes slipped into fast-talking conversations. I used to delight in witticisms and even the occasional word pun. But when I was learning Spanish with no fellow English-speakers in sight, I had to give up my allegedly “sophisticated” sense of humor if I wanted to be able to tell a joke.
I had to become expert at sound effects and physical comedy. And I’m funnier because I learned another language. Charlie Chaplin is timeless for a reason.
