Have you ever wanted to be a fly? I’m not talking about buzzing around in people’s ears and annoying them, though I do admit that would be kind of fun if it was someone you didn’t like! I mean getting the opportunity to sneak into people’s houses and get a little glimpse into their lives. Today, you get just that opportunity. You can take a little sneak into my household by reading the post below.
Unfortunately my life is dreadfully boring these days. I’m on month three of terrible writer’s block, unless you count the fiction I’m writing that no one else will probably ever read (or want to). However, you can read these little bits of funny from my life and then go visit the other bloggers on the block who are more interesting than me. All you have to do is visit the links at the bottom of the post and it will take you out of here lickety split. Get ready, get set, GO!
Evil Genius: “Why am I yelling? I’m making cheesecake, I should be happy, dammit!”
Evil Genius: “Hey, anyone want to eat the frosting out of all of these oreos?”
To clarify, he was making a chocolate cheesecake. And yes, the frosting was removed with a knife, not a tongue.
You know when you are a parent when you have this conversation:
Evil Genius “I need a towel to clean this up.”
I hand him a towel.
Evil Genius: Where did this towel come from? Isn’t this one of the crappy towels?”
Me: “We don’t have any non crappy towels.”
Evil Genius: “We don’t have any nice towels?”
Me: “No, unless you count the Penguins of Madagascar one.”
Add this to the evidence that will prevent me from getting that coveted Mom of the Year Award: Apparently there IS a thing as a Kindergarten Snack Emergency. Because Mommy, sending treats for Valentine’s Day apparently does NOT COUNT as the monthly treat. Duh. One mad dash to town and back later I at least could keep myself in the running for The Kind of Mediocre Forgetful Mom Award.
The Dukes of Hazzard was on TV.
Me: “This was one of my favorite shows when I was a kid.”
The Professor: “Oh, so you watched it in the 1800s?”
Evil Genius: “Are you ready to help me cook supper?”
The Princess: “Yes! Let the experimentation begin!”
On the way back from town the other day, we got behind an Infiniti. The license plate read “N BEYOND”.
I so want to be this person’s friend.
One extremely cold morning, instead of his usual sweatshirt and athletic pants, The Professor donned a white t-shirt and a pair of jeans.
Me: “Aren’t you COLD?”
The Professor: “MOM, I’m supposed to be dressed like a Backstreet Boy!”
(Because apparently Backstreet Boys don’t dress appropriately in cold weather?)
Evil Genius: “My bachelor party sucked.”
Me: “Yes honey, but you don’t have to make it your life’s mission to make sure that everyone else’s doesn’t.”
That would be one weird superhero: Bachelor Party Man!
The Princess: “Mommy, my brother poured my cereal for me this morning!”
The Professor, looking very proud “I can pour ANY kind of cereal!”
I picked my NCAA Tournament bracket this week. As I do every year, I utilize a highly scientific system based upon coolness of team names and mascots.
Yep, according to my calculations the Lumberjacks are going to win purely based upon Monty Python song references and flannel wearing opportunities.
Totally falling asleep due to excessive boredom? Never fear, go fly on over to my friend’s homes and see what is happening in their lives!
