I am admittedly a little deceptive, how you ask? My I know what I'm doing façade is cleverly cloaking my dorky side. I trip over my own two feet constantly, I spill anything my hands grab a hold of while wearing anything white, and I say the craziest things before I even think about how they will sound out loud.
It's Friday and every Friday needs a good full body chuckle. I thought maybe I could provide one to you by sharing with you some of my latest funny moments.
It's A Conference Call … ?
During our nightly chat one night before bed, my special guy asked if anything exciting happened. Here's our conversation...
Special Guy: "Did anything exciting happen today"?
---I am prepped and ready to answer his question tonight because I, in fact, did have something exciting happen that I wanted to share.
Me: "Ohhh I asked the kids to show me how to have a three-way".
Special Guy: "What"?
Me: "Yeah, I figured if I could do it in middle school there has to be a way to have one now".
Special Guy: "What The Fuck"!
Me: "Well it's not like I really needed to know how to do one, but it's cool to know how, right"?
---At this point I'm a little confused as to why he's reacting the way he is. I mean I was really excited about it and I am not understanding why he sounds so off putting to my exciting news.
Special Guy with a huge sigh says: "Raquel, what are we talking about"?
Me: "My new phone, now I can talk to two kids at once. You know a three-way".
Special Guy: "No, that's not a three-way. Please don't say that out loud again. It's called a conference call".
Me: "Are you sure? I thought a conference call was with 4 or more people"?
Special Guy with a chuckle in his voice: "No, it's all the same. They are just called conference calls".
All I can say is at least I know what they are called now and thank goodness I was not having that conversation with anyone else other than my husband, and of course all of you.
WHAT Is Under My Bed !?!?
My entire life there has always been some kind of light on during the night while I sleep. Whether it is a street lamp, a bathroom light, or the tv's light. There has just always been a light on while I sleep, so now irrationally I am scared to sleep in the dark. I just can't do it, don't think that I ever will be able to. This is of importance because the other night one of my kids and I watched a scary movie together. While to most it probably wasn't that scary, it sent chilling fears down my entire body when the movie concluded. In response, I had a nightmare that night. I can't recall any of the details of the dream, but it was spooky enough to wake me up in a panic. My heart was pounding, sweat dripping down my forehead, and my throat was drier than imaginable. My first thought was that I needed a glass of water asap. Tossing the blankets aside I swing my feet over the edge of the bed beginning to step my foot down onto the floor. Only to feel something horrifyingly make contact on the back of my ankle. It's official I just made contact with that monster that lies underneath my bed! Ohhhh, have I never retreated faster into my bed than in that moment. Peering down to look, I see IT in the dark swiftly pull back under my bed before I can make what out IT is. A shriek leaves my mouth, my brain is processing all possible outcome within milliseconds and none are of the happy nature. Now crouched on my bed with a pillow in hand ready to whack whatever IT is. My youngest with sleep in his eyes and annoyance in his voice walks into my pitch black room. Asking what in the world am I doing, to which I inform him in distress that there is something under my bed. Braver than I will ever be he reaches under the frame to pull whatever IT is out and into the light. Prepping myself to see a rat or something, my heart happily comes down form racing a hundred miles a minute. When what emerges is my dog, contently covering my son's face in kisses. I did feel like a dork in that moment, but she has two beds and has never slept under anything. Why of all nights does my dog choose to find a new sleeping spot? It is an incredibly hilarious story to tell, but oh my at that moment I have never been more ready to run for my life. Thank goodness my son was there to stop me from whacking my poor sleepy dog!
I hope my latest funny moments brought a smile to your face and made you laugh a little on this fabulous Friday.
