Box Tops

We have been collecting box tops for a service project. The problem is I am becoming obsessed with box tops. I should of seen the signs. My first clue should of been when I bought baby wipes to go in a baby shower gift. On the outside of the package was two bonus box tops. I kept thinking is it wrong to take those? I did buy them. Would the person getting the gift think who stole my box tops?
I just could not decide if it was right or not. So I left the box tops on the baby wipes.
A few weeks later we are buying toilet paper. You have to buy cottonelle because you get box tops. The kids found a bonus pack so we can get an extra box top. Now they have my obsession with boxtops.
Later that week someone brought snacks to girl scouts and guess what was on the box? You guessed it more box tops. I asked the leader can I have the boxtops?
People are going to start hiding their boxes from me. Maybe I should start carrying scissors so I can cut out the box tops people are going to throw away.

Do you think I am funny??????

I filled out one of those silly email question forms. Things about me. Sometimes I feel them out with real answers and other times with crazy answers. Once I sent one meant to go to one friend to everyone in my address book. OK this would be great if I had put real answers. I of course had all these outrageous answers. One was that I had 10 tattoos. I have none. I had some other funny answers. I meant to send it to a friend as a joke.

Earlier this week I sent out another one of these emails. I put real answers even though some of them were funny. For places I have been I put different Texas Beaches. Others put different states and countries.

Ok on to the point of this post. One of the girls who sent it back with her answers had an answer that causes great concern for me. One of the questions said what really annoys you about people? One of her answers was "PEOPLE WHO THINK THEY ARE FUNNY AND AREN'T"

Oh my gosh was she talking about ME !!!! Could she be talking about me? No not me I am funny. Really I am. I know I am. People tell me I am funny all the time.

So today I tell a couple of friends about this. Their response is they break out into laughter. Not a little laugh. A laugh out loud laugh. I tell them no really I am serious. They assure me I am funny. But I am still worried. Maybe she doesn't get my sense of humor.

So next time I see her I am going to try to not say anything funny. Not one funny thing.

I have some friends I can just look at and start laughing and no it's not because they are funny looking. It's because I look at them and remember just how loud they screamed when I walked in their house from the garage with a rattlesnake skin and say look what I found in your garage.

Really I am funny...........

The grass is always greener on the other side.

Several years ago driving down a country road we see a cow. OK so we see lots of cows, what was different about this cow? Well it seems it thought the grass was greener on the other side of the fence and got out. This to happens often, so why still laugh about this cow. All the other cows were sticking their head through the fence to eat the grass on the other side, this cow was sticking her head through the fence to eat the grass where all the other cows were. I wanted to stop and tell the cow You silly cow you are out you can walk up and down the road and eat all the grass you want. Why do you want to eat the grass that you didn't want when you had it?

Of course since last time I got out of the truck to help some cows on the side of the highway I ended up being thrown 20 feet through the air and landing in a ditch. I decided to let this cow prove the point the grass is always greener on the other side.

First Post

So I have spent a few weeks thinking of something to write. I have a million things I could write about. I just don't see how anything I write can be as funny as telling the story.

You really needed the visual effects. Hands waving, jumping up and down, laughing, screaming.
You really just need the full picture.

So this first post is going to be a list of the funny stories I may write about some day.

  1. I was hit by a run away cow on the side of the highway. Not my car me.
  2. Never drive with out a bra. I grew up hearing you should never drive barefoot. You should always have a pair of shoes in the car in case you break down or have a wreck. Not once did someone tell me you should always wear a bra. Now I know.
  3. When you are trying to scare a mouse out of a garage with tennis balls do NOT run out. Two grown women can suddenly become much thinner when they both want to stand on a ladder that says in big letters. WEIGHT LIMIT 200 Pounds.

OK so those were the only stories I could think of tonight. More later.
