Have You Ever?

Have you ever had a restless sleep that progressed to the point of WIDE awake by 2 a.m. and so you lay there and contemplate life. And while you are contemplating, you think about some really funny stuff and you giggle a bit (sometimes loudly) and decide that you have GOT to blog about such funny topics. You think to yourself "Self, I should write these things down so that I don't forget them by morning" and then your evil/stupid/forgetful side convinces you that you will NEVER forget such funny stuff by morning. Except you wake up the next morning with only the thought that you should blog about some funny stuff and you can't remember what? . . . . No you haven't? Me neither.


Have you ever spent an hour in the evening trying to console your screaming six year old because an airplane has flown over the house several times and quite low and he is freaking in hysterics because he thinks it will crash on top of you. Then an hour later, you are trying to quiet the same child, who is giggling wildly because he has farted loudly and scared the poor dog, who WAS lying next to him. And for some reason the six year old was finding this extremely funny and would have continual outbursts for about an hour or so, while you threatened him to stop?. . . . Nada? Me neither


Have you ever spent your evening (when not consoling/threatening a child or thinking of funny blog topics) picking zits, pulling out grey hairs and having a hot flash all at the same time? Which you find to be quite annoying because seriously should these two things overlap each other for real or are you just some freak of nature going through puberty and the "the change" all at once?. . . Nope? Same here.


I guess we're even then! Have a nice day!

Oh, sleeplessness. It is one of my many arch-nemeses. You should keep a notebook by your bed. I have written several blog posts from things I wrote on the back of receipts from my nightstand.

If I don't write down the funny stuff IMMEDIATELY, it's gone!

*Poof!*

I'm always picking zits, pulling out gray hairs, AND plucking wiry hairs off my chin. The hot flashes are right around the corner...I'm sure of it! :0

I have also never farted and burped at the same time. Not even once. Hardly ever.

Thanks for the laughs! I found you through Rowena's Rants - one of my favorite spots - and I'm so glad she had you "pegged!" I'll be back!

I have gray hairs growing out of my acne.

wait til your Dr. asks you if you are still menstruating--gah

The doctor always asks if I'm entering menopause yet, so I just toss my chin hairs in the air and fart on my paper gown.

My dog has lived in this house for 5 years. He's built up the most amazing fart immunity I've ever seen. He doesn't even wake up now or whine when we throw a gas fest.....not even on Burrito Night!
