Rolling On The Floor Laughing My Bum Off - 11/04/13

     Not a day goes by without our kids saying something that is fall on the floor funny.
     Take this weekend for example.  My sweet daughter was reading her Bible.  She recently attended Bible Blast at church and they gave her a new one, so she's been reading independently these last few weeks.  I walk into her room and she says, "Mom, I feel like I'm reading another language."  I said, "I know honey, it seems like that in some parts of the Bible."  She then says, "You know what.  If you hand me a highlighter right now, I can correct ALL of these run-on sentences."  ROFLMBO
     Just a few weeks ago at breakfast, she says, "Mom, did Nana & Papa have a car when you were little?"  Without skipping a beat, my husband chimes in: "Nope, just a horse and buggy."  Really?  Does my daughter really think I'm THAT old?  Doesn't she know the 40's are the new 30's?   I know we had kids late in life, but geez.  What's she going to say when we're 60?  ROFLMBO
      My son is funny too.  One day he woke up in a grumpy mood.  I said, "You woke up on the wrong side of the bed."  He declared, "I did not.  I was in the middle."  ROFLMBO
      And this one happened several years ago when he was in preschool, but it still makes us laugh.  We had gotten KFC on Sunday for a picnic & hike on the Natchez Trace.  We had some leftover so I packed a chicken leg in his Monday lunch.  His teacher said, "Did you go to Kentucky Fried Chicken?"   With such innocence he said, "No, I got this in Franklin, Tennessee."  ROFLMBO 
      Then there was the time my parents pulled out a very ripe banana to eat.  He says, "Does that have caramel on it?"     ROFLMBO
       Finally, one more from this weekend.  We're at dinner Saturday night and my husband, like many men, has an Adam's Apple.  My daughter says, "Daddy, can you make your Applebee go down?"  ROFLMBO
       I feel so blessed to have these little laughter makers under my roof.

FIRST FAMILY-HIKE

McLEAN, Va. (AP) -- It was a family spring outing. But in this case it's the first family. President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, and daughters Malia and Sasha took a walk in the woods yesterday. They hiked along trails just outside Washington at Great Falls Park in Virginia. The president greeted two eager kids. He also took a selfie with an onlooker before starting along the woody trail. The 50-minute trek ended as a light drizzle began.

LESTER'S GLOVE

CHICAGO (AP) -- It was a throw to first -- and not just the ball. Cubs Pitcher Jon Lester fielded a ball that was hit back to him. But the ball got stuck in the webbing of his glove. When he couldn't get it loose, he flipped his glove underhanded to first basemen Anthony Rizzo. Rizzo dropped his own glove and caught Lester's mitt, ball and all for the out. But the Cubs went on to lose to the San Diego Padres yesterday 5-2.

UNIVERSITY-FRESH FOOD

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Burgers made with grass-fed beef and topped with local cheese. That's what could be on the menu soon for University of Utah students. The school is committed to spending more on fresh, locally produced food. The move comes after students asked for more sustainable menus. University President David Pershing has signed the Real Food Challenge, making a commitment to spend 20 percent of the school's food budget on so-called real food over the next five years.

ANTARCTICA HIATUS

DEKALB, Ill. (AP) -- When Lee Clark moved for a job, it wasn't across town or even across the country. She went to Antarctica. Clark says she applied on a whim for a 911 dispatcher position at the bottom of the world. More than a year later she finally heard back and got the job offer. Clark recently completed her 8-month stint at McMurdo Station. She says Antarctica was so quiet and calm. So, what did she miss? Clark tells the DeKalb Daily Chronicle she couldn't wait to get back to roller derby. She practiced with her roller derby team the day after she returned to Illinois.
