Here are some examples of very typical conversations between me and Joey... if you know us at all, you know these to be true (or you got the text or saw it on Facebook...);
Joey: "Lindsay, who discovered America?"
Me: "Abraham Lincoln. WAIT! NO! Bill... umm... George Washington? Ok, I know this... Amy Grant sang 'In the year of 1492, when Columbus sailed the ocean blue.' So, Christopher Columbus?"
Joey: "I'm texting everyone I know... I can't believe you just said that!"
Lindsay: "Is China in Asia? I mean, If we go to "The Asian Pearl" for dinner, can we order Chinese food there?"
Joey: "Lindsay, China is IN Asia... the Continent."
Lindsay: "So, we can get Chinese food there?"
Joey: "I'm texting your Dad. Where in the world did you go to elementary school?! This is going on Facebook."
So... now that I've completely embarrassed myself (not really. Hey, with a dad and 2 brothers like mine, you gotta have thick skin!). Here's the conversation we had yesterday... hopefully, you'll think it's funny because I DIED laughing (and yes, I have Joey's permission to post this :-))!
Joey: "You should make that seafood stuff your mom made for dinner while we were there for Christmas.":
Me: "That was good! I'll get the recipe. Did she serve it over rice or noodles?"
Joey: "Neither... she served it with pasta."
How perfect can 2 people be for each other? I love him so much :-)
BAHAHHHAHAHAHHHAAAAAA!!! All three conversations are cracking me up!!!!ReplyDelete
That's too funny!ReplyDelete
Y'all are just too cute!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for compiling this list. This is wonderful.ReplyDelete
Two that I would like to add to the list are: at least you are healthy. I had a family member say the most horrific thing to me: you have the freedom to get up and do whatever you want everyday. My child is the best thing that has ever happened to me but he is both a blessing and a burden. WHAT???
I don't care how you see your child. What is right for me and my family and what God wants me to do has nothing to do with freedom to do whatever I want. It doesn't change my desire to have children and saying that to me won't help the situation.
Thanks for letting me vent.
It's nice to know I am not alone in a journey that seems so lonely.
