Comic relief.

I lived with my father in high school and loved a particular brand of chewing gum, Bubble gum flavor.  We traded grocery shopping every other week with list in hand from the other.  One week I asked for that brand of chewing gum, pink, large pack (I wanted more than a small 5 stick package).  Dear father returned with a case of purple  sanitary pads of the same brand name and apologized saying there were no bulk pink ones. :lol:


Last week I was texting with my father, who is more aged now.  I said  "ears stuffy, no pop in a couple days" while complaining about a cold virus.  He replied "Drink more water, eat prunes and buy stool softener". :)


We had a family visit over the last  holiday weekend.  They have 4 children including 2 young boys.  Of course jumping on the bed was great entertainment.  We are in an Recreational Vehicle (small living space) for now that has a sliding door from bed to bathroom.  My dear daughter asked to go potty, when I went to help her she tried to stand in front of the toilet. :o


I hope these put a smile on your face :)

Hi Kathy,


Thanks for sharing your amusing stories about your family (I particularly like the second one about the cold virus!  :lol: )


My elderly mother quite often misses the point as well (like your father!) I have a very dry, caustic sense of humour and have to be careful that any wisecrack I make doesn't sound too facetious.  ;)  There's nothing worse than a pained silence greeting the punchline of what I imagine is an amusing remark!  :wacko:

Joelf, I understand having to monitor my sense of humor around my mother. It has created quite a few misunderstandings.


Kathy D. I also thank you for the giggles.
