Hilarious

I've had a rough couple of days (don't ask) and so I thought that instead of feeling sad I'd think about happy things. Even more specifically, things that make me laugh. A lot. So I have compiled a list. Please add your own!

Things That Make Me Go Ha!

  • Playing charades with nearly-four-year-old Boo. It goes something like this:Boo: Stands up in front of us, and makes some inexplicable sign with her left hand. Us: "Movie? Book? TV show?"Boo: "No!" Holds up three fingers.Us: "Three words?"Boo: "Yes!"Us: "Dora The Explorer?"Boo: "No!" Holds up one finger.Us: "Spongebob?"Boo: "No!" Holds up five fingers.Us: "The Simpsons?"Boo: Thinks for a minute. "Yes!"Us: "Hooray!"
  • The cable TV show "I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant", about women who had no idea they were pregnant till they started giving birth. I particularly loved the 20 year old who assumed she'd gained 25 pounds because she was eating so much junk food (you know, after the condom broke), and the 46-year-old mother-of-two who assumed that she was going through menopause and that her stomach was growing because of a 'tumour'. Oh, and I adore the re-enactments of the births with actors who are mysteriously far, far better looking than the real women themselves, and the 'newborn' babies who look like they've been at pre-school for a year.
    Boo. Don't mess with her.
  • The iPhone app that puts tattoos all over my kids.
  • The outfit my husband dressed Boo in when I had to rush out of the house early before (think frilled pink summer dress over long sleeve navy jumper, worn fetchingly with purple sandals and Dora The Explora socks).
  • The cost of replacing my car door handle after it fell off in my hand (though admittedly I was laughing through my tears).
  • My husband's face when I explained that his daily morning 'coffee' was probably responsible for his bizarre, recent weight gain, given that it is a 'White Choc Rasberry Grande Frappucino'.
  • Penises. Have you ever looked up close? They're hilarious. I don't know how men walk around with those things.

  1. I suppose men can't see their own penises. It's not like they are walking around holding it in their hand or anything... oh wait...

  8. My West Highland White Terrier, Baby Harriet, pretends she's a bunny rabbit and runs around.  It's hilarious to watch and her happiness 24/7 is a real lesson in life......

  16. You know what cracks me up? Those funny cone collars dogs wear to stop them licking their wounds. The Cones Of Shame. Even dogs have some level of pride and they look embarrassed to be stuck in them. You can pretend they're Elizabethan and imagine them talking in prim voices: "Orf with his head! Woof."
