I love to laugh. I might not be as quick to come up with a good joke, but you can tell me yours and I'll enjoy hearing it and laughing with you!
Let me introduce you to one of my daughters, Brittany. She is gifted with a very quick and funny humorous personality, with a keen sense of timing. After all, timing is everything, right?
(I rarely have the timing correct when I'm attempting to be humorous...sigh.)
For those of you who know my husband, Elmer, she takes after him in the humor department!
This morning, while she was preparing to brush her teeth, I noticed that she quickly grabbed the bathroom mirror door without being careful where she placed her hands. (It's quite a large bathroom mirror, larger than most, and I've taught the girls to open it with their fingers underneath, so they don't constantly get new fingerprints onto the mirror. Then, they don't have to clean the mirror as often. You may think that is very Type A of me, but they usually seem to appreciate not having to clean things as often compared to if they were careless all of the time.)
I mentioned this to her, showing her again how by opening the large mirror door from underneath, she will rarely get fingerprints on the mirror itself.
She said, "Mom, I really don't think it's me that's getting the dirty fingerprints on the mirror."
Me: "Oh, really?"
Brittany: "No, I think it's always Kelsi getting it dirty."
Me: "Why do you think that, Brittany?" as she starts putting toothpaste onto her toothbrush.
Brittany: "Well, Mom, one day I was in here, and Kelsi came in to brush her teeth. Her hands were dirty, and she grabbed the mirror and opened it carelessly with her dirty hands. It made a big hand print on the mirror."
Brittany: "Well, when I mentioned it to her, that she was getting the mirror all dirty, Kelsi said, 'Who cares? It's no big deal!' "
Brittany, with her mouth now full of toothpaste, pauses for 15 seconds or so while brushing her teeth and then looks at me with raised eyebrows and says, "Based on a true story."
She rolls her eyes and giggles, while I laugh so hard I'm thankful that I wasn't in the middle of brushing MY teeth...the mirror would have really been dirty when I finished laughing!
Me: "Based on a true story, huh? So, what part of this is made up?"
Brittany, as she giggles and rinses out her mouth: "Uh, well, I don't remember. Some of it, I guess!"
So...what's happenin' in your neck of the woods these days, that is based on a REAL story?
