For about an hour now, I have been complaining that I can't think about one single thing to post. Something that would get my bloggers cracking up like I did with this post or even something touching and close to my heart like this one. Instead, I made the sad mistake of asking my family's opinion...and I quote (with a little embellishing on my part. Hey, I can do that, I'm related to these people.)
Dad: "Ahhh....Jumpin Jehoshaphat. I don't know what you can write in your blog. I'm afraid I am coming up empty!"
Aaron: "Funny?" Hmmm....(Sigh) ummm... (Rubbing his head) Clicking his tongue like a mother hen... Well....ummm...hmmmm.....
~Ya that was a whole lot of help!~
Mom: Silence (Thinking hard) Can't think of anything funny in my life right now!
~In her life? When was this blog dedicated to her? Self centered I say!~
Carole: How about that time when you were in fourth grade and you congratulated your teacher for expecting a baby. And then have her say"What?" "What are you talking about???" Only to have your best friend who told you the news in chapel, start giggling (like only a fourth a grader would do) and say...."Not Mrs.______ my MOM!"
~Oh, I am not finished with Carole's helpful hints. Just hold on to your seats.~
Carole: Oh, I'll read you a book to inspire you. "This is red. Can you say red?" "RED!! NOW LEAVE ME ALONE!!" "You know...I think you should write more about John Boy. He is a gifted writer! "In the show!!" I know, I know, but still he is so cute! "He's 60!" I meant then....sigh.... You know Carole, maybe you should go and watch the Walton's (In my Curt voice)
Carole goes over to a red covered strawberry bubble container. "NO...Carole that smells worse than Play Dough!! "Oh, come on Ging the bubbles may help inspire you for your blog..."
~How did she know?~
Me: *Gag* Please Carole, close that up!! *COUGH* *COUGH* Please *Gag*
Carole: Hmmmm...wow this does stink?? Isn't this fun??
Me: GAG it smells like those scented stickers!! Gross!!!
~Back to the Present~
This may be the last time I ask my family for any blogging advice....Yeah...I agree, there is no way I am doing that. I am sure you will read many more posts like this. I am so glad I can have wacko nights like this. Where I can play with words about my family and then read my post to them all and have them laugh with me!!
