3 dollars for the cleverest title

My thoughts are buzzing around in my head these days at a million miles an hour, and really aren't related. But in the spirit of This American Life, today I'll attempt to bring you three stories on a common theme. This post's theme is hilariousness. This is gonna be awesome. Let's pretend!


1. While up to my elbows in dishwater this evening I decided to forgo the usual pandora in order to listen to the music in the other room. Wipe Out has something very humorous to children and husbands approximately every 8 seconds. I counted between their bursts of laughter. It was pretty hilarious.

2. As Ben was clearing the table after dinner I asked him if he would finish med school if we suddenly won a million dollars a year for the rest of our lives. He said yes, but he would buy a really nice car (and I even know which one without him saying so). I said that's fine, because the first thing I would do is buy this dress:

to the tune of about 2 grand. And i'd probably go for the bag while I'm at it. And then we proceeded to laugh for the next 5 minutes about how hilarious it would be to get a million bucks a year. That's $83,000 a month. hahahaha I just laughed typing that!

3. We had strawberries and cream in crepes for part of our dinner last night (which Banks REFUSED to even try... I think his buddy Ambrose is sending him anti-food vibes from across the ocean:) ) and then I made up the rest of the crepe batter at lunch today. THEN I left the bowl with a few small strawberry remains on the counter under the open window and went to take a sweeeeeet nap (yessssss!). When I woke up (to my alarm-- gotta go get Benson) I wandered into the kitchen half asleep for a drink of water. I noticed the bowl of strawberries and wondered how all those poppy seeds got into the bowl. How odd.

Fast forward to an hour later when Ben discovers a trail of ants from the window to the bowl exactly like you'd see in a movie, or a painting of a picnic, and the bowl is swarming with, uh, poppy seeds. My lack of sleep for the past 4 and a half months is nothing if not hilarious.

And that's the post for today. I hope you enjoyed it!

Really, this is why I love your blog. Your posts are so enjoyable to read. Can you imagine that much money a month... It makes me giggle too!

83000 a month is pretty dang funny. not funny though. but so funny.

stephanie joy said...

I certainly did enjoy it. I take great comfort in a child of yours also being impossible to feed since I look up to you so much in the mothering department... amongst other departments as well. :)

Can we have crepes next week when I'm there?

Carrie said...

Heck yes! I froze some baklava too, so we'll see if that keeps in the freezer at all. mmmmmmm

melissa marie said...

also wanted to say that dress is amazing.

but also wanted to say i'm not down with the socks thing. noooo.

Randy said...

I don't think you want this dress. The model doesn't look all that happy wearing it.

Pam said...

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha...
If you ever do get that kind of money can I ride in your car and be your well paid nanny? Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha...(loved it)

Carrie said...

Ben hates the socks with heels too, but I have to say... I'll be fashion victim eventually because I like them!

Carrie said...

oh and dad, she's mad because she doesn't get to keep the dress you see.

melissa marie said...

i'm thinking that maybe you could wear your socks like that and not even be a fashion victim, but melissa mckankles even when she's not pregnant would stand no chance. (but i'm not too sad about it because it's really not my favorite anyway.)
