That commercial is one the funniest in so long...
I have a very goofy family, and I love it. The thing that I have reveled in the most as I've raised my kids and watched them grow is seeing their little personalities and senses of humor develop. They crack me up. Laughter has to be the best medicine for sure, and there's no better way to beat mid-winter blahs than to spend a weekend with the hubby and kids being just... well, stoopid.
The hubby has always been the King at the distraction game. Many a pissy pout, or tantrum has been broken with the most inane or innocuous thing. The napkin had to be the best. Just throwing a crumpled up paper napkin across the table at a restaurant one evening turned into a fit of laughter and led to the perpetual, "I don't need to get the napkin do I?" whenever someone is cranky about something at a meal.
This weekend we were at Chili's and my two older ones went to use the rest room, and when my son came back to the table, his father spontaneously and oh so non-challantly said, "You know, mommy spit in your soda," causing biggest one to pause a mili-second before giving this little smile and said "No she didn't!" while I rolled my eyes. Of course it needed to be repeated, when sister came back to a chorus of giggles from the rest of us. It was amazing how much "mommy" was able to spit on by the end of the weekend. I feel like all we did was laugh. And it felt good.
Of course, I ate like a pig all weekend, so OPA was non-existent. It's a new day though. I just had a yogurt for breakfast. I am not going to the gym because it's colder than a 40 year-old virgin's va-jay-jay outside. I am taking a hot shower and cleaning up. I will probably do the equivalent of twelve stories on the stairmaster by the end of the day with all the laundry and
Oh, and RIP Darren McGavin.
