Dry Spell



I think my funny juice has run dry...




Kind of like the poetry phase I went through ten years ago. I produced some bomb diggity (as Emily would say) emo verse. You know, full of teenage angst, unrequited love, etc. Back when the worst thing that could happen to you was that a guy you had a crush on liked your best friend...Well, that would still be awful. Even if you were ninety.




And when all the drama ended, I had nothing to write about. Stupid happiness stifling my creativity...




Now, it's the weight of the adult world that has shattered my funny bone. And we all know what happens when shattered funny bones heal, right? They make you sardonic. And give you Cankles ( you know calves + ankles, and when you get so swollen in your legs, you lose your ankles...like your calves have succeeded in a hostile take-over and your ankles have been assimilated...? Whatever, you get the point.).




As I type this, I am sneaking Popsicles (I am getting ready to break out number 3...), just in case my kids catch me. I shouldn't have to sneak. Why do parents have to sneak?? Because we don't want to have to share! Don't tell me it isn't so!






Anyway...I'll come back later. Until then, enjoy this! Can YOU make it through the whole thing??

Where did you find that abomination?

I made it through 43 seconds until I realized I need to go take care of my kids... (smile)
I sneak too. I just did it actually with a jolly rancher outside. Those darn noisy wrappers...
I think you are still funny. Your post about not being funny was funny! Keep it up. We all love your posts!!

i sneak treats too! I don't want to share... :) I only like to share those yummy single chocolate brownies and icecream with my sisters :)

You know - the mommy is tired and weary treat?!?!?!

LOL!!! I do the same thing too. Especially when I am sneaking Ho-Ho's. You definitely have to eat both of them. You can't have 1/2 of a sugar rush, you have to get the whole thing!

Dude, I saw one of those, not the exact same one, but those Charlie videos are the worst. I don't know if it is pure stupidity, or some whack geniousness. It makes me wonder if someone watched so much South Park and Barney that it fried their brain. What do you get when you mix South Park and Barney? Your worst nightmare!

LOL. "What happened to me? I lost my horn!"

I always feel slightly guilty for sneaking, but I shan't anymore. Also...I thought I was the only one who could write totally awesome poems only when severely depressed....aw, it's nice to know I'm not the only one who does things......
