I write a lot about my family. Well that's about all I know. I have had them since I was born and then I married, and I got inlaws, so thats all I can relate too. Oh I worked for over 30 years and if it was a legal job, I did it, but my body gave out long before I wanted to have to stop working, and well, the mind, some days its there and somedays.......
I laugh a whole lot. I laugh at commercials, the animals, my 84 year old Best Friend I call Moma and well just in general. Not all the time is it just hysterical here but when I laugh, I do it with my whole body. And its sometimes at the most peculiar or worst places, like at a funeral or in church or something somber. And even if I am here at home, I can start laughing and get so tickled that I just can not stop and it gets louder. Then when my husband, who is my other best friend, asks me what I am laughing about, I cant straiten up to tell him. And then he sees no humor in that, so he gets miffed and I just go into a screaming howling laughter. If indeed laughter is the best medicine I should have no medical problems.
Then there are things he finds so darn funny that I dont and thats the times he tells folks that living with me is like living with Lucille Ball. You just never know what its going to be like from one day to the next. I dont get it. I dont think I am that unusual.
I have been married so long, I cant remember life without my husband. And I dont want to. But there are times he can tell one of my "happenings" and I just want to crawl under something.
One of his favorites is when we were newly married. I was working (told you I worked almost my whole life) anyway, I was at work in Jacksonville and there was a gym next door to the bank I worked at. Well, Hubby had made mention several times about he likes the marital arts and how he would love to train with different teachers and the different techniques and so on, so I just came home all excited one day and told him I had read this sign at the gym and they were offering classes. And one of the new classes they were offering was something called MING SOON.
With a very quizical look on his face, he asked me over and over what the new class was and I would tell him Ming Soon. I had heard of Karate and some of the other forms of Martial Arts and I was trying to impress my new husband and how I had taken an interest in his interests.
So after a week or so I guess that curiosity had gotten the best of him and he came to my job. We went to the gym and before he entered the door to inquire about the classes, he looked at me, took me by the arm, and said,
"Deb, look at the sign. It says that they have Karate and they have new classes....but it supposed to say COMING SOON. The C and O have fallen off and are laying beside the sign on the floor."
Without missing a beat, I wasnt going to let him know I was embarrassed, so I just looked him in the eye and said, "well, I know they have different names for their forms and types of martial arts, so I thought MING SOON was a new one. "
And to this day he still thinks it is so funny.
I dont get it........
He has a strange sense of humor.
