Blog clean up


When looking for a story to post this week, I checked my plethora of drafts where I’ve housed snippets of funny things to save for later.

It’s later.

So prepare yourself for a series disjointed stories while I clean up my draft folder. For instance:son-in-law-1050289_640

1. My daughter’s knee collided with my son’s nose earlier today. His nose bled a little, though it stayed internal. He adamantly refused to let me clean it. Just now he sneezed and a bloody, snotty blob landed on me. I’m choosing to take the win and be glad his nostril is now clear.

2. Husband: I like you.
Me: Ditto, kiddo.
Him: Ditto, kiddo?
Me, shrugging: It rhymed.
Him: Can I take it back?
3. Church homily: “Ask Jesus to change your mind and change your heart.”
My two-year-old: “And change your diaper.”
4. My friend’s son went to the tux rental store for his prom suit and asked for a tux with a concubine. (He meant cummerbund.)
Which story was your favorite?
When searching for a tux photo, I found several pics of black and white cats too (and penguins. Of course, the penguins). But since there are so many cat lovers among you, here was my favorite offering. I’ll name him Cummerbund.

  1. Your son is a budding comedian, you know πŸ˜€ And I can just imagine the look on the tux salesperson’s face πŸ˜€ So, weighing the amount of time you spent looking for men in tuxes versus black and white cats…. I’d say it’s a draw πŸ˜‰ Okay, cats win by a whisker πŸ˜€

  2. Loved them all. In the second one, I was waiting for your rhyming rejoinder to his ‘Can I take it back?’ Now we know where the kids get their funny bones from!. Hope you have more funny anecdotes in your drafts folder!

    • I hope I have more good stuff in the drafts folder too. It’s a bit of an abyss in there. Now I’m disappointed I didn’t have a witty comeback to my husband, but I suppose I’m happy to let him have that one. πŸ˜‰ Thanks, Zephyr!

  3. Betsy, all great ones and reckon you have a lot of laughs in your family! It was nearly a tie between 3 and 4 but the latter wins it! Did you son realise what he’d said at the time or did someone have to explain it to him later? Cringe!! πŸ˜€
