My dad is in a funk.
He's been in a funk for a while.
Granted, his funk is justified.
In fact, it's a funk my family members take turns going in and out of.
But my dad being in a funk is not always fun.
Today was an exception.
I called him and asked him to take a drive with me.
"Where are we going?" he asked.
"To a store I want you to see."
"Because Dad, you want us to be open-minded about business opportunities. I think we could franchise this store and do really well with it."
He agreed to go with me.
He picked me up from the parking lot at work and I got in his truck.
I had barely reached for my seat belt when I heard him ask me this:
"Are you pregnant?"
I was speechless for a minute.
"Just like that Dad? No how are you today? No asking about Jason, or the weather?"
"Nope, I just want to get straight to the point."
"In that case, no Dad, as far as I know I'm not pregnant."
"Well, when will you know for sure if you are or aren't?"
"I'm pretty sure I'm not Dad. But if you're that curious, I'll let you know the exact day I know 100% for certain that I'm not"
Dear Dad, hanging out with you could give a girl a complex. Do these jeans make me look fat or something?
In other family news...
I stopped at Trouble's house to discuss some things with my sister.
Trouble ran up to me for her usual hug.
She put her arms around my neck and looked at me and said, "You got gum?"
"Yes Trouble, I have gum."
"I want some."
"Sorry, I don't have any more."
"Give me some from your mouth."
And so I did.
Yes, I did.
Trouble ran off.
A few minutes later she came back.
"I want more gum. Can I have all the gum in your mouth?"
I gave her the rest of the gum I had been chewing.
She ran off again, but before she disappeared around the corner she said this:
"You're my best friend!"
I'll take her as a best friend any day!
About that card...
(If you need to refresh your memory so that you know what I'm taking about, I'll give you 3 minutes.)
(Ready. Set. Go.)
This is what the inside said:
"We'll look out for the lions together."
ALL of your guesses made me laugh...some right out loud.
But there is a definite winner.
This is what Kristi said:
"It's a concrete jungle out there...glad we have each other."
Don't you agree?
Don't you think that's close?
The first time ever that Kristi comes out of lurking mode and she wins a prize.
I already have her address.
She'll get her goodies soon!
I don't know if you've noticed, but I can't simply narrow it down to one choice.
I've got to give honorable mention to one more person.
Stephanie has been around a long time...I'm not entirely sure how she found my blog...she just showed up one day. And I'm glad she did.
I was on the verge of tears when her comment popped up on my phone.
I laughed instead of cried.
Because of that, she gets goodies too.
Email me your address won't you Stephanie?
"It says...since -stephanie- didn't win the Stephen's Caramel Apple Cider she had to buy some herself..let's go to her house and have some. It's going to be a long walk since she doesn't live in the big city. Did you pack your trunk?
Am I close? ;o)"
Am I close? ;o)"
Just one more thing...
Is it just me, or do girls handle being sick better than guys?
Happy Thursday Friends!
