In an effort to get back on track, and an excuse to put up another picture of my son, I thought it may be a good idea to post some of the random thoughts or funny stories that are too long to put on Facebook. Here are a few:
If you’re an adult, and you fall down and skin your knee, that is THE MOST IMPORTANT THING that will happen to you that day. Maybe that whole week. You’ll be embarrassed initially. Eventually, you’ll tell your friends and coworkers. You may call your mom. If you have a visible injury like a scratch, or a scab, EVERYONE will ask you about it. Really, falling down one time will be the most important thing that happens to you that week.
My son will fall down 104 times today.
Today is a friend of mine’s child’s picture day at school. Hearing this reminded the group of people I sit with how cool the free plastic combs were on picture day. I remember standing in line at Jefferson Elementary School in Parkersburg, WV, waiting for my teacher to walk down the single-file line and give us each our very own plastic comb. There was nothing better than slicking back your hair and slamming that comb in the back pocket of your corduroys.
As I tried to find a picture of a black plastic comb, I found this hilarious post that shows the other end perspective of the dreaded grooming device: The Desperate Housemommy. The article is a little long, but it’s really funny. Ha-ha funny, not bad hair funny.
Did you know that burrito translates to, “Little Donkey?” Proof.
The name burrito possibly derives from the appearance of a rolled up wheat tortilla, which vaguely resembles the ear of its namesake animal, or from bedrolls and packs that donkeys carried. – Wikipedia
