What are 5 words of phrases that make you laugh?

Geez… ummm… my husband loves dad jokes (his description)… and honestly just says hilarious things without meaning to, so few of my favs are below.  *Note: most of these are probably had to be there moments.

That’s some white people shit!

I don’t want any tea, bitch! (This is a quote from an Australian true crime show re-enactment and is now my notification tone when he texts me)

I hope Sandy doesn’t have to go “pawty” later. (Sandy’s our dog, and it’s like a nightly statement so we don’t have to get up to let her out)

Poopin’ Cat – now we just have to say it and I crack up, but it started with a night I was overtired and the Pinterest meme below

poopin cat

Estoy Poopin – an extension of the above

estoy poopin

Oh boy, I’m crackin’ up now. 🙂

What are 5 ways to win your heart?

Books, food, back rubs, silliness, and kindness

What is something you’ve always thought “…. What if?” about?

I dated a guy in high school, we broke up, he asked me out the following Valentine’s Day “for old times’ sake.”  I knew he was upset that we had broken up and didn’t want to lead him on, so I said no.  I wonder about what would’ve happened if I’d said yes.  Not because I miss him, but more in an anxiety producing way.  My husband (not high school guy) is most definitely my better half.  We don’t just finish each other’s sentences, but frequently will say the exact same thing at the same time with the same inflection.  We’re regularly called out as being the same person in two bodies, and I think at least every few weeks that we’re #relationshipgoals.  So, I wonder what if I had said yes and missed out on all of this happiness.  It’s a weird thing to get hung up on…

What are 5 of you pet peeves?

Chewing with your mouth open, rudeness, being ignored, surprises, and asking the same question when it’s already been answered

If you could trade lives with anyone for one day, who would it be, and why?

Probably a stay at home mom.  I can’t have children and long to know the joy of caring for my own little ones.

What is the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?

BLT Pizza – My niece and I had a day out for her 16th birthday, and I couldn’t say no to the birthday girl.  It was surprisingly delicious (minus the shredded lettuce: see below for weird habit)

What is your favorite joke?

What do you call chips that aren’t yours? Nachos

*ba dum ch*

Where would you go if you were invisible?

I’d probably follow James Arthur around.  He’s not much to look at, but his voice does things to me…

What is one thing you own that you wish you didn’t?

An electric organ.  We received it as a gift because my husband and I are both music freaks.  It’s a cool piece for our living room, but takes up a lot of space.  Anyone who’s willing to pay to move it can have it!

What is a weird habit that you have?

I hate shredded lettuce.  I have an irrational fear of choking on it, so I refuse to eat it and have mauled meals before (even in public) to avoid eating it

What is the longest word you know?

Outside of everyone’s fav from Mary Poppins?…. Maybe librocubicularist, someone who reads before bed because that’s me!


I think everyone I know on here has already been nominated, so instead of following the remaining rules, I gift you a few puns I’d saved from my Home to Roost post.

  1. Some of the scenes left me a bit “peckish” for more
  2. It’s a “flappingly” good story
  3. Don’t go off half-“cocked,” make sure you read this book
  4. You’ll “crow” for more from this author
  5. “Beak” careful about reading this after dark

Have a fabulous day, friends!

  1. Ha ha!! Great answers!! I would love to own an electric organ! My nana used to have one and I miss it. But, I could understand why it would be a little in the way. Lol! I want to know who in your lives went “You guys are musical?? Well, than you need an electric organ!! That’s what ALL the musical people need!”
    By the way, pooping kitty had me dying.

    1. Yeah. We got a random text from a family member about an organ that needed a good home, so we took it in. Who are we to leave a poor organ orphaned? Neither of us are overly skilled keyboardists so it’s mostly just a fancy living room ornament. That cat has become such a joke in our house that I got up to go potty one night to find that my hubby had printed it out and taped it under the lid of the seat. I woke the whole house up howling in laughter.
