Laughing Out Loud

 

 

 

 



So many funny things happened while on this trip - a few of which I got photos of - and a few were things people said!

I was walking the beach in Galveston one morning. A couple of guys were surf fishing. As I walked back to my car, I saw the sign on the one man's truck and it made me laugh out loud. I went to the car, got the camera and took a photo of it. He came up and said he gets a lot of business because of the sign. I bet he does..........

Then one of the funniest things was while I was staying in Galveston with friends. They were out of town. When I would walk into their bathroom I would here this whirring sound for about 10 seconds. I couldn't figure out what it was. This happened several times until I realized that every time you walked by the super duper toilet called "Toto", the lid went up automatically. Needless to say, I had fun walking back and forth. Super duper it is! The seat is heated and a bidet is included in this device. Price tag - close to $3000 retail. But think of all the fun you can have.........

Last but not least is the sign my son-in-law put up over the alarm system on the day I was going to be arriving at their house to spend the weekend. Made me laugh out loud. I always worry when I'm going to their house that someone will forget and set the alarm and the police will come. I worry about that because it happened one time! Clever way to take care of the issue, huh?

Several funny things said. The "deer hunter" was telling me about trips to the Hill Country with his buddies. I asked if they cook - he said, "Oh no, we go to a little cafe in Comfort we call Huevos con breast!" REALLY! That cracked me up. It seems that the waitresses are very attractive and well endowed. The guys eat breakfast and lunch there every chance they get. Boys will be boys! And waitresses are not dummies.

While at dinner with friends in Galveston, it came to light that one of the men who I had corresponded with on Senior People Meet was someone they knew. They had told me earlier that they knew him but at dinner this night, they told me an unbelieveably funny incident. The conversation started with the husband saying he was glad that I had gone no farther with this man then meeting him for coffee at IHOP. I determined through conversation that he was not someone that I would want to date. Luckily! My friend told me that they knew he was a retired cop and one night saw him standing on his balcony in Galveston in a pink negligee holding a gun. OMG, that so tickled my funny bone that I couldn't stop laughing. We ALL got a good laugh out of that. REALLY!

It's fun to laugh out loud. It seems life gives us plenty of chances - if we're just open to it, daily.

Thanks for putting a smile on my face this morning.

I'm still trying to figure out how to goad you into sharing your seven secrets.

A smile on our faces every day is a GOOD thing.......

You don't REALLY want to know my seven secrets.....it would blow my image, ha.

Love the cop in the pink negligee with his gun story! I know the IHOP is really hard to pass us, but glad you didn't succumb. HA!

Felipe Zapata said...

You know people with a $3,000 toilet?!

You dated an armed man in a pink negligee?

Good Lord.

Babs said...

Felipe, yes I do and NO I didn't...only coffee and an hour of my time!

I am with you on laughter. As far as I am concerned, it is God's greatest gift to us. Without laughter, there can be no compassion.

Babs said...

Well, I wouldn't say its His greatest gift, but it's close!

Glad to finally see photo instructions on the bidet, lol.

The alarm reminds me of dashing into my daughter's home to use the bano (I was having one of my food sensitivity issues, if you get what I mean). She was on a camping trip out of town. Never sets her alarm, never!! I was around the corner doing my thing when the alarm started whooping and a man's voice was loudly saying enter my code or the PD would come. Aaaugh, I was yelling back while desperately pulling up my clothes & dialing her phone, getting the out of svc area message, I'm telling the guy yelling at me, I'm the Mom, he doesn't care. I desperately dialed again, this time the call went through. By this time I was so angry as she hurriedly hung up to call the alarm folks. We never did discuss this caper, lol.

Gin, that is exactly what happened to me the time the alarm went off except when I tried to call my daughter, she didn't hear her cell phone. The police came. It WAS a scene....So, needless to say, I'm scared to death to walk in their house. However, they did finally relent and give me the security #. Hopefully I'll remember where I put it if I ever need it.
