If I'd Known Then ...

Sitting at lunch the other day, the conversation turned what you've been pulled over for, and the tickets received.  One guy said, "If I'd known I was going to get as many tickets as I have, I would've starting framing them.  You know, I'd probably have a 24X24 by now!"

New Word

Sometimes it can be dangerous learning new things.  Like when you're taking your new found knowledge out for a test spin, it's good to do it away from the person who's going to blog about it.  :)

But I don't name names and I usually ask permission so it's all good.  Right? 

We're sitting at lunch and my friend tells the rest of us about a new word she has learned.  "Indolent" - it means lazy.  We're chatting about how it's a fun word and sounds sophisticated and nothing like what it really means.  And then we start practicing how to use this new word.

One friend, "I'm feeling indolent today."  (Imagine the high and mighty voice, and the wide sweeping gesture with the arm ... )

Another friend, "What an indolent day it is." 

And yet another friend, "Are you impotent today?"   Oops, wrong word.

My Man's Hands

We're sitting in church yesterday and my husband has his arm around me.  At one point, he makes an interesting face - a little boy behind him had started to pet his hand.  Yes, pet - just like you would an animal.  The boy's mom immediately swats his hand down and quietly asks him what he's doing.  Not so quietly in reply he tells his mom, "I was petting his hand mom - it's so hairy!"

Mother's Day

... or rather the day before at my local Fred Meyer's from last year.  Don't let this be you!

Can you roll your r's?

I can't.  Never have been able to.  I can fake it, but it isn't even close.  My daughter finds great humor in this and today she's at it again, attempting to teach me how to roll my r's.  After laughing at me for a bit, she tries rolling her r's by sucking in instead of breathing out.  The result?  A hilarious sucking in sound - try it, it's funny sounding!  I immediately crack up and she tells me, "See mom!  That's how funny you are to me!"

Yup, She's A Talker

My daughter's teacher told her today,
"You know, a person's jaw can only open and close so many times in a lifetime."
