Life Keeps Changing My Plans

Tons of stuff to do and no energy. Here is something to make your weekend a little nicer... smile!

The Seniors Breakfast Special

We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the "seniors' special" was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99.

"Sounds good," my wife said. "But I don't want the eggs."

"Then I'll have to charge you two dollars and forty-nine cents because you're ordering a la carte," the waitress warned her.

"You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?" my wife asked incredulously.

"YES!!" stated the waitress.

"I'll take the special then." my wife said.

"How do you want your eggs?" the waitress asked.

"Raw and in the shell," my wife replied.

She took the two eggs home.

DON'T MESS WITH SENIORS!!! We've been around the block more than once

Another oldie but goodie...

Husband and wife in bed together. She feels his hand rubbing her

She: "Oh, that feels good."

His hand moves to her breast.

She: "Gee, honey, that feels wonderful."

His hand moves to her leg.

She : "Oh, honey, don't stop."

But he stops.

She: "Why did you stop?"

He: "I found the remote."

Welfare Office

A guy walks into the local welfare office, marches straight up to the counter and says. "Hi.. You know, I just HATE drawing welfare checks. I'd really rather have a job."

The social worker behind the counter says, "Your timing is excellent. We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur and bodyguard for his beautiful nymphomaniac daughter. You'll have to drive around in his Mercedes, but he'll supply all of your clothes. Because of the long hours meals will be provided. You'll be expected to escort her on her overseas holiday trips. You will have to satisfy her s.xual urges. You'll be provided a two-bedroom apartment above the garage. The starting salary is $90,000 a year."

The guy wide-eyed, says "You're Bullshitting me!

The Social Worker says, "Yeah, well........You started it."

Weekend Trip Info

One of those interesting moments when you get to the places you want to take pictures and realize your camera battery is low... so low it won't let you take a picture. Yaa... and the one I charged is 100s of miles away at home. Seems I forgot to put in the new battery and bring the charger. Sigh. We had one camera that was working (Tot's) and it needed batteries as well as Tater's. Luckily their cameras take AAs. Phew. Here are some pictures from their cameras since MY camera does NOT take normal batteries.

Road Trip

We are going on a road trip for the weekend. While I will come back with some good blog fodder, I will not be taking my laptop with me. Those who have access to my blog are welcome to drop in a line or two... otherwise, you will have me back on the same bat spider time, same bat spider channel on Monday (or Tuesday).

Enjoy the break! I know I plan on it.

And just to drive you nuts because you can't get it out of your head once you start singing it:

Spiderman, Spiderman,
Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size,
Catches thieves just like flies
Look Out!
Here comes the Spiderman.

Is he strong?
Listen bud,
He's got radioactive blood.
Can he swing from a thread
Take a look overhead
Hey, there
There goes the Spiderman.

In the chill of night
At the scene of a crime
Like a streak of light
He arrives just in time.

Spiderman, Spiderman
Friendly neighborhood Spiderman
Wealth and fame
He's ignored
Action is his reward.

To him, life is a great big bang up
Whenever there's a hang up
You'll find the Spider man.

After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social Security.

The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver's license to verify my age.

I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at home.

I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have to go home and come back later.

The woman said, "Unbutton your shirt." So I opened shirt revealing my curly silver hair.

She said, "That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me", and she processed my Social Security application.

When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at the Social Security office.

She said, "You should have dropped your pants... you might have gotten disability, too."

I have been sick for a week now... and for some reason this just hit me as really funny...

The makers of Viagra funded a study at Stanford to see why the head of a man's pe-nis was larger than the shaft. After 1 year and $180,000, the researchers concluded that the reason that the head was larger than the shaft was to give the man more pleasure during s.x.

After they published the study, the makers of Cialis decided to fund their own study. After $250,000 and 3 years of research, the Berkeley researchers concluded that the reason the head was larger than the shaft was to give the woman more pleasure during s.x.

M.I.T., unsatisfied with these findings, conducted their own study. After 2 weeks, a cost of around $75.46, and 2 cases of beer, they concluded that it was to keep a man's hand from flying off and hitting himself in the forehead.

Nothing like having a child to keep you on your toes. Here is a conversation we had at the dinner table the other night... one of the unusual dinners with daddy at the table with us...

Out of the blue while we are all eating -

Tater: You're just a little fat aren't you mom?
Mom: **blink blink** Uhhh. Yes.
Tater: Dad, your really fat, right?
Dad: **shocked look** You really should not comment on people being fat, you might hurt someone's feelings.
Mom: **blink blink (hiding face to keep from laughing out loud)**

Tater: "Mom, take a look at this picture"
Mom: "What is it?"
Tater: "It's you with a pe-nis!!"
Tater/Tot: Laughing out loud
Mom: "Sigh"

I hate to say it but you could barely see the stick figure because the size of the pe-nis. Guess this size thing starts at an early age.

Pastor's Business Card

A new pastor was visiting in the homes of his parishioners. At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out a business card and wrote "Revelation 3:20" on the back of it and stuck it in the door.

When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, "Genesis 3:10."

Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter. Revelation 3:20 begins "Behold, I stand at the door and knock." Genesis 3:10 reads, "I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid for I was naked."

Easter Egg Hunt

We went to the community church's Easter Egg hunt. They always have 1000s of eggs and the kids love it. This year my kids got divided between two areas. Tot went to the 'hay stack' for 0 to 3 year olds, while Tater went to hunt around the Pastor's house for the 4 to 6 year olds.

While waiting to get into the Pastor's yard, Tater posed as a Jedi Knight:

Since my boys have a fascination for poop lately, I decided to do a search on it...

The Intellectual Appreciation of Poop was the first thing I found. Does Mountain Dew Pitch Black really turn your poop green? You can find the answer at that website.

And found at a couple of sites:

GHOST POOPIE: The kind where you feel the poopie come out, but there is no poopie in the toilet.
CLEAN POOPIE: The kind where you poopie it out, see it in the toilet, but there is nothing on the toilet paper.
SECOND WAVE POOPIE: This happens when you're done pooping, have pulled your underwear up to your knees and you realize you have to poopie some more.
POP-A-VEIN-IN-YOUR-FOREHEAD POOPIE: The kind where you strain so hard you practically have a stroke.
LINCOLN LOG POOPIE: This kind of poopie is so huge, you are afraid to flush without breaking it up with your pencil.
GASSEY POOPIE: It is so noisy that everyone within earshot is giggling.
DRINKER POOPIE: The kind of poopie you have after a long night of drinking. It's most noticeable trait is the skid marks at the bottom of the toilet bowl.
CORN POOPIE: (self explanatory)
GEE-I-WISH-I-COULD-POOPIE POOPIE: The kind where you want to poopie but all you could do is sit on the toilet and fart a few times.
SPINAL TAP POOPIE: This kind hurts so bad coming out, you swear it is leaving sideways.
WET CHEEKS POOPIE (aka POWER DUMP): The kind that comes out so fast, your behind is splashed with toilet water.
LIQUID POOPIE: The kind where yellowish-brown liquid shoots out and splashes all over the toilet bowl and you.
UPPER CLASS POOPIE: The kind of poopie that does not smell.
SUPRISE POOPIE: You are not even at the toilet because you are positive you will only fart, but...(oops!) a poopie.
DANGLING POOPIE: This poopie refuses to drop even though you know you are done pooping. You just hope that a shake or two will cut it loose.
ATOMIC POOPIE: The kind that burns on the way out and it still burns hours after you poopie.

To Burp or Not?

Seems Tater has figured out how to drink water and then make a big burp come out. Tot can get a belly laugh from watching his brother and hearing the burp. Now I finally got over the 'poop' discussions and it is not outlawed at my house any more. The boys can say it anytime they want except at the dinner table. That does not mean I will stick around to hear it but they can say it. Now burping... should I outlaw it or not. Right now I don't, but it is getting really annoying. Any thoughts?

And I definitely am living with boys. Tater drew a butt with poop coming out of it on his Doodle pad (or I would have gotten pictures) and Tot was roaring with laughter... after he erased it, he drew a pen-is with pee coming out... more laughter by the boys... finally he holds up a cloud with eyes and the top of a head above it... yaaa... Fart in Your Face... told dad about it and he laughed almost as hard as the boys. I just don't get it. But I have decided to put this in my blog so I won't forget it. Wait till those boys get to have their own kids!
