Funny Friday




It's Friday!  How about some funny things to kick off the weekend?

First, a story from the kids at church.  I'm hanging out with the 2-3 year old class on Wednesday nights this summer.  Let me just say that it is a good thing they are cute, because they are trouble!  This week, I was reading a book about farm animals to a couple of the kids.  One of the boys started asking me if I had any of the animals at my house.  It went something like this:

3yo boy:  Do you have chickens at your house?
Me: nope
3yo boy:  Do you have cows at your house?
Me: nope
3yo boy:  Do you have horses at your house?
Me: nope
3yo boy:  Do you have gooses at your house?
Me: nope
3yo boy (growing more and more concerned with each question):  Do you have cats at your house?
Me: nope
3yo boy:  Do you have a dog at your house?
Me: nope
3yo boy:  Well.... do you have a vacuum at your house?
Me: yes, I do have a vacuum.

So, at least I have something.  He seemed worried that I lived in an empty house.  I'm still not sure why we jumped from animals to cleaning machines.  Kids are so weird sometimes!  

And second, have you seen this video yet?  I love it for multiple reasons.  One, the original song is catchy, but so dirty/creepy.  I just can't listen to it. (especially since Robin Thicke looks so much like his dad, and I'm like "Dr. Seaver, noooo!") Weird Al keeps the tune, but cleans up the lyrics!  Two, I can get kind of riled up about grammar (exhibit A, exhibit B), so I hope this helps people figure out how to talk/write correctly!

Anyway, happy weekend!  Remember to link up next week with Ginny and me for Shorts Week!

  2. Haha you are so right about them being trouble, but adorable at the same time. And I have the exact same feelings about the Blurred Lines/Word Crimes songs as you!

  3. haha, I did see that video! Weird Al apparently is releasing a new one every day for 8 days. I used to love Weird Al. I figured I'd know a person or two who would get a kick out of the song. Also, kids are so funny. I miss hanging out with them. And I really like this color cardigan with the striped skirt. I had a dream about this striped skirt last night. So weird. Have a great weekend! :)

  4. I've seen that video too! I was an English major (and long time member of the grammar police), so I quite enjoyed it :)

  5. I have skirt envy. And I just bought a striped maxi skirt this week, now how do I justify a pencil striped skirt!

  6. Oh my gosh, that story is adorable! I worked at a daycare center for four years in high school/college, and I LOVED hanging out with the 2- and 3-year-old tykes. They always cracked me up with the things that they'd say :) Also, you look wonderful in your skirt as always!
