Because We All Need A Little Levity

I picked up dinner Friday night from the little Jalisco around the corner. The place was crazy busy.  Drive through was six cars deep so I went inside.  It was bring your kids to work day for the waitresses.  Glad we decide on ‘to go’.   Anyway I ordered and I waited. 

Meanwhile a lady comes in; she’d ordered over the phone.  We both wait.  Making small talk.  My order comes first.  He says I thought you were together.  Nope. 

She asks is your number 123-4567?  Nope. 

She looks over at me and says “watch this” She hits re-dial, the phone starts ringing.  Doh!   Haha. Profuse apologizes with offer to comp her meal. As I exit she says “it’s free?  In that case I ordered …” 😂

I wish I could think that quickly on my feet. 

As always more to come. 

Dance with me people 💃🏻

Because We All Need A Little Levity

I posted the following on FB 3 years ago. Hard to believe three years have passed.  This was two months before the beginning of the end.  Lulu’s issues were still bubbling just beneath the surface. The constant is a still use laughter to cope.  One of my better strategies. I need to remember that!

Lulu: “Mom, you have this condition!!”

She shows me her phone and I read …

Tarantism (n.) overcoming melancholy by dancing; the uncontrollable urge to dance

Me: “hells yeah!” As I busta move in the middle of Tommy’s Mexican restaurant this AM. I was already foot tapping under the table because the tunes were saweeeet!!!!!It is a real thing. 

A disorder characterized by an uncontrollable urge to dance, especially prevalent in southern Italy from the 15th to the 17th century and popularly but erroneously attributed to the bite of a tarantula.

Funny I don’t remember being bit ;). Happy Saturday ya’ll make it a good one!!

Funny Math

Because We All Need A Little Levity

Funny Math: We were picking up prescriptions for Lulu and decided to grab some chocolate.  We see a display with new M&M flavors.  Carmel, dark Chocolate and peanut, peanut butter.  All in shareable bags.  Two bags for $6.00 or $4.19 each.  Our conversation went something like this:

Me: Let’s just get one bag.  She’s queasy anyway and I or rather YOU surely do not need any candy.

Billy Bob: Two bags are cheaper.

Me: No, one bag is $4.19, two bags are $6.00.

Billy Bob: I know, $3.00 each or $4.19.  That’s $1.19 more.

Me: Per bag silly.  Actually, one bag is $1.81 less than the $6.00 we’d pay for two bags.

Billy Bob: I give up.

Me: I didn’t say anything.  You see, I know when to keep quiet.  Lol :).

As luck would have it, the single bag was only $3.19 because I am a CVS frequent flyer and we got $1 off our purchase.

As always, more to come.

How Big A Boy Are You?

Because We All Need A Little Levity

After Lulu was born, I took a job working nights.  I became daytime nanny and Billy was nighttime nanny.  That way I could stay part-time and we’d save the cost of daycare.    I had just lost my mom after all.  She was our original daytime nanny.  I miss my mommy!!  Especially at times like this.  But this post is about levity so I’ll continue. 

My coworker introduced another coworker (carpool buddy) to the comedy stylings of Roy D Mercer.  We’d listen to these cassettes  on the car rides home.  Yes you read that right!  Cassettes.  It was 1999 after all. Today these gems are on You Tube and converted to CDs.  They’re still just as cheesy as ever.  

I re-discovered Roy when a blogging friend and I commented back and forth about prank calls in the 70s.  Last week at work I listened to these to relieve anxiety of Lulu’s pending surgery.  And I got a lot of work done! Distraction causes focus! Oxymoron alert!   And you see I don’t need no stinking alprazolam.  I just need laughter. Even my physical pain went away.  Laughter.  The best analgesic out there!!

Take a listen.  I hope you enjoy!!

Because We All Need A Little Levity, Life

As I’m taking stock of how we got through these most recent events, I’m realizing that of every coping mechanism used, laughter was the best!   In this section titled because we all need a little levity, I’ll post a plethora of funny stuff. An eclectic mix mash.  

Kicking it off is Billy Bob aka Gene Hackman.  Why Gene? Well because he has  his Popeye Doyle glasses on of course.  Maybe only Truly Unplugged will get me.   

I about fell off the hospital cafeteria stool when he whips out his phone and says “now where’s my notepad?”  And starts typing away.  Will wonders ever cease?!?!?

I pretended I was snapping the guy in the F/U Mickey Mouse T-Shirt behind him.  Instead I got this 😀. Notice he has got on his reading glasses AND his shades.  I think he’s taking notes so he can key payroll.  Lol!  

As always more to come.
