I have my own quirky sense of humor that at times has failed to impress others….which generally cracks me up even more.
Confession: A guy my daughter once dated wasn’t impressed with me though I left an impression. To my credit, I did not maim him nor was he “found” anywhere so kudos to me for self restraint. He was a terrible boyfriend and caught cheating. Having broken my daughters heart, I felt it only fair to fork his yard. He woke up to about 5000 plastic forks stuck in his tiny front yard. Dare I say that I had much more fun placing them in the middle of the night than he had removing them? I also in no way concealed the fact that I was responsible in fact took a gentlemanly bow at the credit for such fine work.
Some years ago, Clay and I purchased an old horse trailer online. It belonged to a barrel racer and was a great price, however, it was painted in bright baby blue and pink! It was like dragging an Easter egg around behind us. We had our granddaughter with us and were taking our filly to pasture at my moms.
It was pouring rain and Clay wanted to stop at a convenience store and parked us along the front of the lot. We certainly drew a great deal of attention with our trailer, everyone seemed to do a double take. As I spied Clay emerging from the store and dashing through the rain, I reached over and locked the door.
When he tried to get in, I smiled sweetly and told him to start dancing. The dawning realization that I wasn’t kidding was priceless. My grin broadened and our granddaughter squealed with delight chanting ” Dance PawPaw! Dance!.” Oh, he was a fabulous specticle doing the Running Man and The Cabbage Patch, in the pouring rain with the entire parking lot watching and dying with laughter.
Granted, it was a risky move on my part but I let him in. If there’s one thing I can say about my husband, it’s that he has a riotous sense of humor and a complete child when it comes to fun. He actually helped me fork ol dudes yard, took the kids to toilet paper a friends house, played flashlight hide & seek and once ran outside in the snow with nothing on but a strategically placed tube sock, at midnight to make naked snow angel’s with me in our yard on a dare. He’s so much fun and there’s no predicting what mischief we might get into.
We’re older now, calmer, more adult these days so when he ran to the car during a veterinary visit not long ago, he was completely unexpecting that I’d lock him out….
