We love how the little boy says he "makes a funny"!
At the Finlayson house, sometimes I just sit back and listen as everyone "makes a funny". I decided to start writing down the funny things that happen, and I will try to share a few of them once a month. Please know that most of them are NOT appropriate, so if you don't like inappropriate stuff you should probably not read this post. If you are Raynee...stop reading immediately! Love you Mom!
THE FINLAYSON FUNNIES - JANURAY 2015
+ Connor - "Nathan, if you could be black, would you?"
Rick from across the room, and not previously in the conversation - "FOR SURE!"
Both Nathan and Connor - "Me too!"
What? Where in the world did that come from?
+ Rick - "Connor, what do you want to be when you grow up?"
Connor without hesitating - "A lawyer or a Viagra salesman."
Rick without cracking a smile - "Would you have a license plate that says bone maker on it?"
Connor - "Yep."
And that was the end of that conversation.
+ At opening exercises for Young Men/Young Women...
Brother Farr (this is completely taken out of context) - "The eye can't do the hand job."
The second we all are home and together that night...
Alicia - "Did you guys hear Brother Farr talk about a hand job?"
Connor - "I was trying as hard as I could not to laugh!"
Nathan - "Can I please go up to Brother Farr on Sunday, put my arm around him, and thank him for explaining the hand job to me?"
+ The worst though...I got a membership at VASA (formerly Gold's Gym) a few months ago. I am usually smart enough to not try any new classes by myself so I don't make a fool of myself, but due to a lapse in judgement, I decided to try a spin class without a chaperon. I figured that I ride a bike so I should be okay. WRONG! I had gone swimming before the class, and quickly changed into my cycling clothes - my bibs, long cycling socks, and my Skecher athletic shoes I had just bought from Costco the day before. I also forgot my hat, so my hair was wet and extremely curly, but I was there for the workout, right? I walked into the class and immediately knew I was dressed completely wrong. EVERYONE there was wearing head to toe Lululemon. There wasn't a pair of cycling shorts in the whole room. And long socks??? Oh, heck no! I had no idea that you DO NOT WEAR CYCLING GEAR TO A SPIN CLASS! I saw a few people I knew, but they were smart enough not to make eye contact with the new weird girl. You don't want that reputation! Luckily, they turn the lights off for the class, so after a few minutes of feeling completely awkward, I remembered the reason I was there, and got a great workout! When I got home, I called Rick to tell him about my recent experience, and as I glanced in the mirror I realized that my shirt had been on inside out the whole time. Needless to say, the next time I went to the cycling class, I had my Lulu on, my shirt on the right way, little ankle socks, a hat, and no Skechers. I fit right in. My crotch might hurt more than it needs to, but that's okay, people talk to me now!!!
What does your family do to "make a funny"?
