MAKE ME LAUGH MONDAY #3
I thought we could all use a good laugh on Mondays…I know I sure can! To participate in Make Me Laugh Monday
share something really funny that has happened to you or someone you know. Choose one of those things that just makes you giggle every time you think about it!
You’d probably have to know my father-in-law to fully appreciate this one, but he is one of the funniest people I know. He is a tall, bald man, with funny facial expressions and bright blue eyes. We are buddies and he always cracks me up.
We took a family vacation to Santa Cruz a few years back and it was a really, really hot day. My husband was off with my daughter, so my FIL and I were hanging out together. We were at the far end of the boardwalk when one of his flip-flops broke. The rubber part came out of the flat part. He took it off and we decided to go clear to the other end of the boardwalk, where the shops are, to get a new pair.
We start walking…him with one flip-flop on…and it looked so funny, I was cracking up. The ground was sooooo hot, so he’s hopping around to find shady spots to land in as we walked, saying, “oooh..aahhh” all the way. I found this hysterical and I start laughing even harder. This goes on for about half way down the boardwalk, when I hear him say, “ahhh man!!”…I look over at him (I’m still trying to catch my breath from laughing), and a Seagull had pooped down the front of his shirt. OMG…I was about to pee my pants. I went into one of those uncontrollable laughs, and I couldn’t stop. People were staring at us (needless to say), and I’m gasping for breath. He starts laughing harder too.
So let’s recap…we’ve got a guy hopping down the boardwalk with one flip-flop, and bird poop down his blue shirt. I’m doubled over laughing. Okay, okay…we decide (through the laughs) that we will go into the shops and buy a new shirt and flip-flops.
We finally arrive at the shops and he heads to a clerk and asks if she’s got size 13 thongs…she looked at him in the funniest way (thinking the other type of thong)…of course, I lost it again. They did not have size 13 “thongs”…and the other shops didn’t either. We rounded up the rest of the gang, they laughed hysterically, and we went back to the hotel…
I will never forget this day…I think it is the hardest I have ever laughed….geez, I love that man!
