Friday Fragments, Episode #85
Having been married for 20 years now, I think I know the secret to a happy marriage-- it's Friday Fragments! [Just kidding. I got nuttin' for my intro this week; it sounded believable to me, so I'm going with it. [To learn more about Friday Fragments and how to join in the fun, click on the button above, and don't forget to link up at Friday Night Leftovers, too!]
***Mom is recovering nicely, thanks. This morning, having spent the night, and while preparing to leave for school, I asked, "Do you want me to make the bed, Mom?" She replied, "Oh, no. I'll do that later; it'll keep me out of mischief!" She cracks me up.
***Felt like I was on Little House on the Prairie last night at Mom's; no internet connection, my cellphone died...we went to bed at nine o'clock! It's good to be back on-line :)
***My absolute, hands-down Favorite Friday Fragment this week came from MattyThoughts, where I laughed and laughed (along with many of you and, hopefully, Matty) over his fragment about making my Baked Mostaccioli recipe. It's a little too long to paste here, so please stop by his place to read it; it is hilarious; I promise. Matty, the award is yours this week!
Honorable Mention goes to Caution, for these "people will notice" tidbits:
If one volunteers in the church nursery and successfully delays changing a bad diaper until after the service is over and the parents arrive, people will notice.
If one fails to squeeze one's buttocks tightly enough during a sneeze and ends up with an embarrassing snart as a result, people will surely notice.
Caution, I've been there (not saying which one) so I could relate, and I really loved the "people will notice" angle on your fragments.
And to Coby, at Finding Joy, who shared this about her potty-mouth twin:
A couple of days ago I heard Baby A dropping F-bombs left and right. He did not learn this from his parents, I assure you, and he's not in preschool and doesn't really watch TV. So where did he get it?
"What are you saying, son?" I asked him.
He giggled and said, "Crows say, '#*@!, #*@!, #*@!'"
Apparently this is his translation of caw, caw, caw, because when I asked him if caw was, indeed, what he was saying, he answered yes. Hm.
~I loved Coby's fragment, because I remembered when my own two kids accidentally dropped f-bombs as toddlers. Yikes!
***Just want to say a quick thank you to Amy, of Pretty Babies for helping teach me the ropes of Gmail this week. I am slowly figuring out how to rebuild an address book!
***Want make a new friend or two? Connect with some old ones? Link your FRIDAY FRAGMENTS post up here and then play eeney-meeny-miney-mo to visit another fragmenter (or six.) I can pretty much guarantee that you'll be welcomed with open arms.
Have a great weekend!
