Time for A Little Humor

Even in the midst of several not so funny things, funny things happen. Let me share a few.

The other night, Mike's girlfriend was here and I think he was trying to impress me. He said as he was leaving, "Bye butternuts. Love you. I mean buttercup."

So tonight I told him I was tempted to blog that he called me butternuts but I knew that he had read my blog in the past and hadn't liked it when I mentioned him. He said, "yeah, you wrote some things in there that might make people not want to meet me if they didn't know me." And I said, well, if you hadn't have done the things that made me feel the way I did, I wouldn't have written what I did."

He said.... well, I don't care anyway. What do I care what really old people.. like 30 year old adoptive people ... think about me? So blog readers -- you really old 30 year olds -- guess Mike doesn't care what you think.


I made the mistake the other day of calling Wilson "Peanut." He looked at me and said, "Would you like it if I called you 18 wheeler?" I asked, "What does an 18 wheeler have to do with a Peanut?" And he just looked at me like I was really really stupid.


Tonight was the Good Friday service and Dominyk was fidgety and loud. I kept saying "this is the most serious service of the whole year. Can you please be quiet?" He said, "Why do you keep saying that?" I said, "Because you aren't getting it?" He said, "HUH?"


When surrounded by teenage boys with special needs in a service, the cock really shouldn't crow in Scripture. Dominyk couldn't stop laughing.


Last night we went to church and the instructions are that after the service you must walk out in silence. I was trying to keep the kids quiet when one of the women in the church came over and exclaimed "What a cute baby!" as she looked into the car seat where Salinda's purse was. Gabby was in Salinda's arms several feet away and of course, at that point, the "no talking" rule was broken while everyone cracked up.


Last summer we were at Mike and Kari's having dinner and I had my camera and was trying to do stock photography so I was taking pictures of the kids and kept saying the titles of the potential shot "Small Asian boy eating hot dog" or "Hispanic teenager eating watermelon" or "Adult male having conversation." Tonight, months later, Sadie was sitting in my office with her camera, points it at me and says, "Large Caucasian woman eating ice cream cone."

My daughter is 15 and she thinks the "butternuts" remark is hysterically funny. She said she'd like to meet the guy who who said that just to bust his... butternuts.

D. really should pay more attention in church. There are all kinds of funny things in the scriptures like this gem: "And Jesus, having found a young ass, sat thereon."
A young ass!
Funny stuff. Funny holy stuff.
