Funny Things This Week

This week I had a few moments of hysterical laughing, even though some of which involved embarrassment on my part.

1. I was in the Chick-Fil-A drive through window and heard someone honking at me. It was Santa on a motorcycle waving. I don't know why, but that just cracked me up. It was like he knew me. I waved back and then he drove away.

2. At Academy the other day, I helped Annie try on a pair of roller skates. I always loved roller skating back in junior high, so I tried on a pair myself. After a couple of awkward steps, I was back in the saddle. Skip turned the corner just as I did a turn and began skating backwards. (I know, I truly have no shame.) The look on his face was priceless. It was the last thing he expected to see coming around the corner. Then we started laughing so hard I almost fell and had to grab his basket. In case you see him, I really do want these for Christmas.

3. I went to a very crowded convenience store two nights ago for a couple of items, and I was just in one of those smiling, happy moods. Well, I was until I turned onto the aisle by the freezer items. You see, I am wearing flip flops in December and not paying attention to the water on the floor by the ice section. You can probably guess what happens next. Actually, if I would have done a quick fall that would have been better. Instead, time stood still as I slowly did the biggest split (that was almost a fall) I have ever done IN MY LIFE and I've done plenty. Last year at Seaworld, just to name one example. When I looked up, I saw this handsome young man in shock next to me. He tried to act super concerned to see if I was okay, but I know he was about to bust a rib trying not to laugh. I don't blame him. I totally would have. Anyway, at record speed, I made it to the counter only to find a 5 minute wait with guess who behind me. I know my face was as red as Santa's suit.

4. My friend Tiff sent me a funny home school video the other day, and when I showed Skip we found that the guy who made it has a website. He is Christian comedian, but we've never heard of him before. We have to get him to come to our church. Our favorite is Cletus take the Reel but you can check out some of his other videos and clips here.

I can SOOOO relate to the roller skating nostalgia. How sweet for you to want to share that with your little girl. And I can SOOOO relate to the splits in the convenience store. I mean, not THE EXACT same circumstances, but the embarassing myself before having to stand around wondering who will crack first - me or my audience. :) Hope you had a GREAT Christmas!!!

Were your legs sore the next day from going the splits? It is always fun to impress our hubbies after many years of marriage! I'm excited to see the video of the Christian comedian.
