Happy Thoughts by F.C. Burnand
FC Burnand was a writer/editor for Punch. He wrote the popular column "Happy Thoughts," a first-person narrative by a man who is constantly embarrassing himself, being annoyed by his friends, then having "happy thoughts" about how to turn the situation around, a clever thing to say next time, or rationalize what just happened. He is writing a book called "Typical Developments," in which no one is interested, for good reason.
"Happy Thoughts" is similar to "Diary of a Nobody" which was written by D'Oyly Carte actor George Grossmith. Burnand was a contemporary of these people and knew them.
