isn't it funny






1. isn't it funny how appealing that parking space is that's only maybe 10 feet closer to the store entrance and isn't it funny, how long you will sit and wait for that person to pull out, while they casually finish their phone convo and apply their lipstick---and isn't it funny how successful you feel as you exit your car and catch up to the driver that had to park further out--

2. isn't it funny how your kids remember with startling accuracy all the bad stuff in their childhood, but shake their head in non-recognition at the story you share about their great 6th birthday party, you gave them

3. isn't it funny how excited one can get as you wait on the beach, watching for everyone's safety, constantly counting the kids and grand-kids---you finally have a bright spot, you have discovered some driftwood, only to find out as they all come running to see, that it is just dried dog poop

4. isn't it funny how your spouse can put the scales up 10lbs over and over and how you never fail to fall for it--i know i love it

5. isn't it funny how you think you look pretty good sometimes until you look at the candid picture, some idiot has shot of you and you realize once again, you have a bad side and a worse side

6. isn't it funny how the things the next door neighbor, the delivery guy, the milkman, or a stranger, can say the same thing to your husband that you've been telling him for decades and he listens to them, like they are his personal guru

7. isn't it funny how easy the "i" letter seems until you go to write it and isn't it funny how i thought this would be funny

  1. Yes. It is funny. Especially the husband preferring to hear the advice of random strangers over you. I get that also!

  2. Very true!!! All of them. May I add, isn't it funny how we fall apart over the small and stupid things but the big things we've got covered?

  3. Isn't it funny how our children can't seem to hear a word we say when they are right next to us, but go whisper to their father in another room and they suddenly have 20-20 hearing?

  9. I don't do #1- I always park way out in the back somewhere so people won't park next to me. But, isn't it funny how they come out there and park next to me anyway? And I'm guilty of #2 but my kids are not. But, isn't it funny how I sit and wait for the other shoe to drop? Ha! This was fun! And funny!

  10. I love this post! I stopped doing the first one when my kid started saying "oh, couldnt you find a spot further away?" Ah the price of sarcasm...I park as far as I can!

  11. I'm forever impatient, and #1 got me shaking my head. Seriously, would it kill us to walk an extra 20 feet? =) Silly people.

  14. Every time I am with my husband and he waits for a parking spot, getting irritated with the driver, I wonder what is the big deal. One time, I kid you not, we sat for 45 minutes by our post office so some woman would quit talking, get in her car and leave. That way we could move up and park in her spot so we could visit the person that lives in the house next door. I should have taken a book.

  16. The parking space kills me! Why is it such a big deal to have that space when you are going to walk around in the store anyway?

    1. haha i know, but can i tell ya a secret---when i go to walmart where i might walk the length of the store, maybe 4 times--i still ask frank to drop me at the entrance and then park--crazy huh--thanks theresa :)

  17. Just today I had to wait for someone to back out of a parking place before I could proceed down the lane. Someone was waiting to take it. I waited for him to pull in. I found a place to park and still got to the restaurant two minutes ahead of my lunch companion.

  18. I find it really humorous when I watch someone sit and wait for a parking spot right outside the door of the gym, when there are plenty of spots in the back lot...humorous and a little "I"ronic!! Great post! And very funny!

  19. Very good. An entertaining post. I think I can relate to all of your examples, except for the misidentification of driftwood. I haven't experienced that one yet.

  21. What a fun post. For the reason that you'd mentioned, I'd much prefer people take pictures of me while I'm ready and prepared, as opposed to being caught off guard.

  23. It is funny! Isn't it funny how we are always hardest on ourselves?!

  24. Funny about parking, as my husband always tries to get the best spot. I'd rather park farther away in a roomier space. I can also relate to when your hubby only listens to your advice when it's coming from someone else.

    1. i am the same way---i like the further away roomier space too, julie----and why would anyone not pull all the way through, and avoid having to back out ;)

  25. I especially liked #5 and 6. And, 'isn't' is a great selection. It made me smile. Especially #6, I totally sympathize.
