Funny Friday: May 2015

Funny Friday, May 2015


Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.




Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by Spatulas on Parade  




1. After the honeymoon, Cinderella left yet another shoe behind.


2. As the marathon runners came near, George had a choice. He could save his wife's shoes or his ham and cheese sandwich.


3. Harold was comfortable wearing one shoe and he didn't care who knew it.


4. Before he tripped, Harry's Cloak of Invisibility was a smashing success.


5. Remember the old lady who lived in a shoe? This is her beach house.

Fly on the Wall: May 2015

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the May Fly on the Wall Group Challenge. This month, 16 amazing bloggers and I are describing what it would be like if you were to take a peek inside our homes....



Have a "look" around mine, and then go visit the other blogger's pages. There's always something fun, sentimental, or better yet, embarrassing going on. It's like your house, only we're admitting to the craziness. You have our permission. Buzz on over!


Cast:
Me
The man
Alexandra, the eldest 
Micah, Alex's husband 
C., The middle (son, 17)
J., The youngest (son, 10)

Questioning our eating habits:
The man and J. have a weekly donut date...
***
We offered to meet up one weeknight with our daughter and her husband for dinner. I was thinking of eating at a steakhouse or somewhere along those lines. The kids had other ideas. Every one wanted to go to an all-you-can-eat buffet. Really? Really. The downside of this was that I wasn't able to visit with any of the kids. They were too busy getting up and down, while eating all 16 possible courses the buffet offered. The upside was listening to the kids for the two days up until that dinner. They were texting and reminding each other to wear elastic pants and to not eat breakfast or lunch so they could fill up. It was much like preparing for a big event, except that they were preparing to eat three days worth of food in one sitting. It was, in their words, a "big success".
***
These were my actual Mother's Day cards from the kids. No vegetables or fruit, unless you count the flavors...
Look closely. The kids made all of that by hand!

Questioning our down-time:
I can't tell you exactly how many days it has rained this month (too many!) or what we have left in the fridge. I CAN tell you though, that my son introduced me to Netflix. I didn't want to go down that rabbit hole, but I did. I also can tell you anything you'd like to know about the 8 seasons of "Scrubs" or the first three seasons of "Chuck." I need help.
***
Remember the rule, "No animals on the sofas?" This is how you get around that.
Lucy balances on the man's hip.

Random Family Quotes:

"I'm at the game and there is a lull, but the lady in front of me (on her iPad) is on Tinder, so there's that."

"I'm sitting in a classroom and I kid you not. The teacher said the Sun is a planet."

"I was on Reddit and read about these crazy guys who eat oranges in the shower. I thought it was a little weird. (pauses for my reaction) I'm telling you in case you're wondering why my bathroom smells like citrus."

"Can fried dill pickles be considered a low-residue food if I chew them up really well?"

"I hate driving your car, Michele. I feel like I'm riding in a clown car. I took it early this morning and put gas in it for you. I felt ridiculous."

My friend texts me later : "Hey, I was on my way to work this morning and I saw Mark driving your car. His head was bent sideways. Tell him to put the top down before he breaks his neck."

Questioning where the time is going:
May really has been a crazy-busy month.

J. worked hard to get his 4th grade "Phd".


C. went to prom and will be a High School Senior tomorrow. No, he's not a vampire. My flash was on!


Alexandra is now a college graduate! She received her B.S. in Elementary Education.

3 words left for this crew: Bring on Summer!
