Happy Hump Day (What Happened to Monday?)

Happy Hump Day

Sorry about missing everyone on Monday.  I got tied up with family, life, and stuff like that. 

But here we are, back for another Hump Day post to get you over the mid-week hump and on your way to the weekend.

First, I just have to mention...

Hooray for the 2013 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox!!!

 Yeah - there was a lot of celebrating in my family.

Let's start out with another bit of wisdom...from the mouths of babes.

You know he's right.

Here's a little story to help us get ready for winter. 

On a bitterly cold winter morning a husband and wife  were listening to the radio during breakfast.  The announcer said, "We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the Snow plows can get through."  So the good wife went out and moved her car.

A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer said, "We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd numbered side of the street, so the snow plows can get through."  The good wife went out and moved her car again.

The next week they are again having breakfast, when the radio announcer says, "We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must park...."

Then the electricity went out.

The good wife was very upset, and with a worried look on her face she said, "I don't know what to do.  Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snow plows can get through?"

With a long-suffering sigh and a gentle smile, the husband replied, "Honey, why don't you just leave the car in the garage this time."
  I didn't see it coming. Did you?

I just like this one.

I have the same feeling sometimes.

Hey, want to make people crazy - just for fun? Here are a couple ideas.

At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars.  See if they slow down. 

When you go out to eat, order a diet water. With a straight face, of course.

When leaving the zoo, run towards the parking lot, yelling "Run For Your Lives!  They're Loose!" 
Hee hee hee.

  Don't worry, I didn't forget your weekly "aw".

I thought this one was perfect, even without the words.

Did we make it? Are you over the hump and coasting to the weekend?

Wonderful. That's what I'm here for.

Have a great weekend and I'll see you here on Monday. Hopefully.

Smart arse answer for Today:

A lady was picking through the frozen chickens at a grocery store but she couldn't find one big enough for her family. 

She asked a passing assistant, "Do these Chickens get any bigger?"

The assistant replied, "I'm afraid not, they're dead."

Saw the garage one coming! And I've always wanted to try the trick with the blow dryer.

Stacy McKitrick said...

Thanks for the laughs! I did not see it coming, either.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

I wonder if you would get in trouble for the hair dryer thing. Really cute picture.

Julie Flanders said...

I didn't see the garage coming and I couldn't begin to guess what the joke was going to be LOL.

Love the kitten and HUGE pup, how adorable. Glad you're still enjoying that Boston win!

Heather Holden said...

LOL, poor little kitten, getting licked like that!

And the "aw" for today is way too adorable! Those two look so precious...

Robin said...

The dog licking the kitten made me think of Lucy and Snoopy from Charlie Brown. How many times did she complain about dog kisses? And Snoopy would have in a thought bubble, "What's wrong with dog kisses????" Yep.

Arlee Bird said...

There was a World Series? I didn't even notice.

Funny stuff, though those drive people crazy things could get you in trouble these days.

Tossing It Out

Julie Luek said...

Oh my, a few chuckles and groans with this post. And no, I didn't see the even/odd dilemma's resolution! LOL.

Thanks for the midweek smile.

Maria Zannini said...

Go you! These were all good ones today.

And I totally laughed out loud at the dead chicken joke.

James Garcia Jr. said...

Hey, LD. As I told you, I'm a poor long-suffering CUBS fan. *sigh* So, during the world series I was living vicariously through your beloved Red Sox. Congratulations, World Series Champion. How does that sound? Pretty sweet, huh? ;)


Lexa Cain said...

I literally laughed so loud at the dead chicken one my hubby thought I'd lost it and gave me the hairy eyeball.

Thanks so much for the laughs, and congrats on your team's victory! :-)

Kaye George said...

So true! My oldest knows all about the 12 hours of labor. AND the saddle block headache. :)

Love love love the last one!

Mike Keyton said...

Our oldest took 17 hours and I endured 17 hours of Billy Joel back to back. My wife endured more.

Julie Dao said...

At a Halloween party, I made my friend block the TV the entire time that last Bosox game was on, just so I wouldn't jinx them. And it worked!! And P.S. I gotta try that sunglasses/blowdryer trick sometime.

mshatch said...

I didn't see the garage one coming and I love the aw :)

LD Masterson said...

Susan - Good point. Better warn Alex.

Julie F. - Oh, I'll be riding that Red Sox high all through the winter.

Julie L. - You're welcome, as always.

Maria - That one will be making the rounds as turkeys when we near Thanksgiving.

Mike - Aw, poor baby. How you suffered.

Julie D. - And WE THANK YOU!

mshatch - Thanks. Glad you enjoyed.

Tammy Theriault said...

I love love love your sense of humor!! I think I gotta tweak that joke so she can say "how can I pit it in the garage with all your junk in it!" Because we all know that's the truth!! Haha...

farawayeyes said...

Late to the party, but now my weekend will be better.

Did not see the garage deal coming, because that IS something I would do.

Emily R. King said...

Love the snow plow story and the smartass answer!

LD Masterson said...

Tammy - Ah, you've seen my garage.

farawayeyes - Not me. Too cold to be moving my car outside.

Emily - Thanks.
