I need a good laugh today. I miss Steve and Mo because they are away at Camp Tel Hai. I'm stressed about some things. I need a good laugh.
I find all of these things funny. Maybe you will laugh too. I hope so.
These dumpsters are all over the place around here. These are brand new ones, so they don't hold the charm and visual impact that the more seasoned variety holds. Did you know that dumpsters are called 'tips' in South Africa? That makes me smile, but Vile Dumpsters ALWAYS make me laugh.
My friend Cam, I am is not a big fan of 'Northern Biscuits'. We call them bagels. She told me why she didn't like them the other day. Maybe she will leave a comment and tell you what she thinks of them. It's funny. I laughed.
Here are some quotes from our family. All of them made me laugh. Enjoy.
Mo and Steve were watching men's lacrosse one day. She used to play lacrosse. It's the only place I've ever seen a competitive side to her...
Mo: What was the call?
Steve: Check to the head.
Mo: Those hurt. I know, I've given a few.
Proof that my tax dollars are giving my child a top notch education, or maybe that other middle school students are negating it, or that this quote has nothing to do with knowledge...
El, a few weeks ago:
What's cervical cancer? Cuz some kid did his report on Napoleon Bonaparte, and he said that Napoleon died from cervical cancer. Everyone laughed. Why is that funny?
In the car, on the way to the book store...
El: I really want a rat.
Me: You can have one when you move out.
Steve: You don’t have to, you know.
El: I meant why do I have to wait til I move out?
Proof that teenagers can turn ANYTHING into an insult...
El: Wow, Dad, that pickle smells. I never noticed how much pickles smell
Mo: You smell.
Sometimes, I even make myself laugh...
If you're going to exaggerate, at least be accurate ~ Me to Steve.
I've often thought that we should write a marriage blog together, and call it Exaggerating Accurately, or something like that. Those two words sum up what being married is all about. Two people who see the same things differently trying to make sense of...everything.
Our 20th Anniversary is August 20th. I'm planning to share 20 things in honor of 20 years beginning Friday, which happens to be the 1st of August in case you needed an accurate ending. Actually I needed it.
Here's the answer to the question:
