True Story Tuesday by Rachel

In the words of Larry the Cable Guy, “Lord, I apologize.”

Has it really been a whole week since I’ve posted?  Truly, I’ve tried to keep up with y’all, but I was down for the count after a no.good.awful.morally.draining.kick.butt week at work and I just needed some family time to recover.

And of course those family members don’t disappoint.  And usually create more TST fodder.

What’s TST you say?  Why it’s True Story Tuesday!  Come play along – just link up your old or new post with a story that is amazing, incredible, outrageous, hilarious, miraculous, and (mostly) true.  And Linny… you have got an AWESOME story this week, so you’d better link your cute little tushy up (just sayin’).





Y’all remember last year’s Thanksgiving conversation, right?  Where my husband waited for the perfect moment of silence around my extended family’s table… then said with all the mock horror he could muster:

“Rach asked me for my phone so she could take a picture of a stranger’s naked butt.”

Well, this year was much improved… if only because I wasn’t the source of amusement.

So the same guy waits for another opportune announcement moment and says,

“Hey, remember when I got caught on camera peeing at the cell tower site?”

(Total silence as everyone quits chewing)

Me desperately whispering:  “Umm honey?  You said that was your brother?”

“Ha ha ha… Nope, that was me!”

“Honey, no you said it was Brush Ape, not you, right?  Right?”

Nope, I really had to go and we were a million miles from nowhere.  I just unzipped and took a whizz.  Then Brush Ape noticed the security cameras aimed our direction.  Hey, at least I wasn’t taking a dump!  Ha ha ha!”

I am mortified as the table erupts in riotous laughter.  I have no clue what prompted this lovely new topic, but I am desperate to be done with it.

No honey, it was your brother, not you.  Shhhh!  It was your brother!”

Finally my calm and logical father steps in…

“No Rach, he’s right.  That’s what the newspaper said too.”


Doesn’t every family have these kind of Thanksgiving table conversations?  Come on, share your memorable moments and link ‘em up… Just grab the code from the right sidebar and we’ll be around spreading some holiday comment love :)  Can’t wait to catch up with y’all!

OMG sooooo funny
Mr Daddy is the best
Hope this week is better Rach

Lauren said...

Oh no! Mr. Daddy cracks me up! I can honestly say we have never had a conversation about public elimination around the holiday table at my house. At least not one that made the news!

Foursons said...

Oh gosh- I hope this week is better at work! I can't even imagine the stress you are going through.

As far as dinner conversation...with kids anything goes! So I'm sure conversation along those lines has taken place, but I don't believe any of our stories made the news. That would be reserved for Mr. Daddy- of course.

Wow. That Mr. Daddy.. he should start a manners school, no? (most definitely.. NO!) Lawd, Mr. Daddy, as Lewis Grizzard once said.. "Brother, I don't believe I'd a told that!" Well, not in front of the in-laws, anyway. It's so nice that Rach loves you anyway....

He & Me + 3 said...
