True Story Tuesday - Weapons of Mass Destruction

Did y'all miss True Story Tuesday as much as we did?  Even putting the weekly stories on vacation for a bit didn't actually give us a break from the real life craziness that tends to happen to us!

There's got to be a good tale from your holidays... an outrageous gift?  Something the kids said in front of your Christmas party guests?  Or maybe you ended up with a houseful of puppies? (Ahem, Brandi)

Just post the amazing, hilarious, miraculous, outrageous and (mostly) true story that has happened to you and link it up at the bottom for some comment love!

You can also link something you've already written (haven't we all had those blogworthy stories?) - just grab the True Story Tuesday button code (that gobbledegook below the picture of the four gals on the right sidebar), copy in into your post and enjoy sharing your tale!

This week brought to you by the incorrigible Mr. Daddy.  We're starting off with a bang.  Or rather, a "I can't believe you just did that".

WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION

 

Yes my beautiful bride bought me a Nerf gun for Christmas.

And I think she gets more enjoyment out of it than I...

But she breaks all the rules...

 

SHE IS A HEAD SHOOTER!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Now if you are harvesting game, or putting down a beef for the freezer that is a good thing.

If you are playing a friendly game of Nerfsie...NOT SO MUCH!!!!!

I was standing in the kitchen just the other night and she rattled off six or seven rounds to the back of my head, before I could even duck and cover.

And I think that the success has gone to her head.

 

(Rach In:  Honey, where are you going with this?  Just because you aim for my rear end, doesn't mean that those suckers sting any less.)

The other night we were out to dinner at the local restaurant, and she gets to clowning around shooting spit wads out of a straw at me...

Yep, you guessed it, right at my head.

(Rach In:  Oh no you don't.  I do your laundry.  And dude, you've been fishing for the last four weeks.  You owe me.  You wouldn't embarrass me on my own blog...)

But guess what folks? SHE MISSED...

(Rach In:  Ohhhh Lordy)

 

went right by my ear into the booth directly behind me, and hit the lady IN THE HEAD...

(Rach In:  I can explain...)

 

Dinner at Country Cousin's $39.38

Hitting a stranger in the head with a spit wad $00.00

The look on Rach's face.... PRICELESS!!!!

 

And to top it all off, before anyone else could react, she handed the straw to Itty Bit, and said

HONEY, I TOLD YOU NOT TO DO THAT.......

Bet we won't be going back there for awhile....

 

Rach In:  Hand the blog keys back over dude... you do a spectacular amount of damage in a single post.

Okay, so the deal was that Mr. Daddy is a big ole baby when it comes to spit wads.  And it wasn't really a SPIT wad... just a crumpled up piece of straw paper.  And I was doing my part in educating the little guy on the proper loading procedure.

Only the dang thing went off, and the intended target didn't take one for the team.

It wouldn't have been so bad except that the victim kinda sorta had a minor freakout.  She jumped and started batting at her hair like something was alive in it.  Those drama chicks...

Goshdarn.  I'll just show you in pictures, cuz it just can't get any worse.

(And if you thought we looked bad after (ahem) Itty Bit shot the poor woman, you should have seen how many stares we got whipping  the camera out).

Time to link up and share your own tales! We can't wait to catch up with y'all!

Oh man. I so would have done that Rachel...awesome. SOrry Mr Daddy. LOL. I would have loved to see the freakout too.

Buckeroomama said...

VERY quick thinking, Rachel, handing over the straw to Itty Bit. Good thing he didn't announce, "But Mom, it was YOU who did that!" =) I would have loved to have seen the whole episode. :)

I love that Mr. Daddy signed T.S.T.! =)

Kmama said...

Oh my gosh. that is soooo funny. I love this TST!! Definitely one to go down in history!

brian said...

The best part is when you hand the straw to Itty Bit and admonish him :)

Foursons said...

Bwhahahahahaha- that is SO something that would have happened to me. I have a similar version but we were in a bar and I was throwing coasters and I may or may not have spilled someone else's drink.

And oh my gosh girl, are you quick or what handing that straw over to Itty Bit?! I'm never that fast on my feet.

I so wish you had video of the freak-out. How old was this woman who was freaking out over a non-spitwad?

BJ_Mama said...

HAHAHA! That;s AWESOME!!! I love that you blame it on the kiddo! HAHAHA!

Aunt Crazy said...

I am dying for Rachel and yet a little proud at the same moment! You are quick on your feet {or bum since you were sitting} blaming it on Itty Bit! Bwahahahahaha

Mr. Daddy should have totally taken one for the team! ;-)

Just Add Walter said...

bahahah -- love that you blamed it on Itty Bit but love even more that you whipped out the camera AFTER this happened -- hahaha!

Tiffany said...

Oh man! Are you sure we aren't related? Cause one of our "famous" stories involves my dad teaching Jerome the finer points of creamer launching in a Dennys. And hitting the waitress.

And Mr. Daddy? Sheesh...

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

What a funny story! You two are hilarious!

GunDiva said...

Love the fact that the camera got whipped out and that Mr Daddy's spelling TST. Cracks me up.

BTW, we're not going to have any wrapped straws at HCR. Or Nerf guns. Wait...Nerf guns might be kind of fun for playing cowboys and indians on horse back.

Leiah said...

The look on his face while signing TST is the priceless part. Thank goodness Itty Bit didn't decided to ask what you were talking about. In his OUTSIDE voice...lol!

Tina said...

Poor Ittby Bit having to take the blame. That's just unfortunate for him.
So funny though, if it had been me, the histerical laughter would have probably given me away!!

deepintheheartoftexas2 said...

I have missed TST. I love the pics to go along with the story. Your hair looks cute. Cute trying to blame it on your kid. Lol.

kc said...

renee said...

Saimi said...

Ha! I love it!!! I also think it's cool that Mr. Daddy contributes to the blogging...What's he signing there anyway?

Mom of M&Ms said...

Seriously Mr. Daddy... I thought more of you.. Rach, ya did the right thing in handing over the weapon to the baby....and Drama queens deserve it.. right???

Together We Save said...

Oh my goodness.... very funny!!

passionofthemom said...

LOL This kind of reminds me of this summer, when we took the kids out to McD's one night for some ice cream cones. We were in a really silly mood, and were tossing our crumpled straw papers back and forth at each other and giggling like fiends. Then, this weird douche at the next table starts throwing HER straw papers at my kids....and we didn't hit her with any of ours!! Kind of took the wind out of the sails, but the lady responded well to my death look and vamoosed, and we got back to our hijinks. ;) Gotta say, I loved this story!!! Especially the part where she tried passing the straw to Itty Bit....PRICELESS!!! xD Hope you guys had a wonderful Tuesday!!

Julie said...

That is just hilarious!! I'm a head shot kind of girl too!! Of course, if anyone else does it..look out!

K- floortime lite mama said...

OMG
I love the three of you
you guys totally rocked country cousins!!!!

Beth Zimmerman said...

That sounds like something I would do! I like playing paper football across the table with my grandkids ... until their *mature* parents comment on the mess we are making! LOL!

Emmy said...

LOL!! Love love love that you took pictures. That just makes it a zillion times better.

This post is awesome

Tracy P. said...

Oh so glad Angie and Amy sent me over to your awesome grandma shot this morning. This story reminds me of the time our son shot the wrapper off his straw towards Daddy at Sunday lunch, and it hit the grandpa across from us all dressed up proper with Grandma in their church clothes. There was that split second of horror until Grandma cracked up. Good thing she didn't have pop in her mouth or it would have come out her nose. And Grandpa looked over at us and said, "You know we teach them to do that" as though accepting the blame himself. That's grace. Love your photos!

Cannot. Stop. Laughing!!

danette said...

Bwahahaha!!!! My family is giving me funny looks because I am cracking up over here, that is too funny :). And then just as I'm getting myself back in control I get to the part where you handed Itty Bit the straw and scolded him I started laughing even harder.

on the topic of Nerf guns, I came home one day to find dh had all the boys armed to the teeth with Nerf guns and darts now... I got pegged in the eye once but otherwise have managed to defend myself. ;)

Julie said...

oh my gosh...too funny.

Oh, and my sign language pretty much sucks...I was wondering why you were signing TAT?!

:)

(I am glad you two were on your best behavior when we went to dinner ;)

Dyann said...

Oh, no.

I would not have had the capacity to think so quickly. Or been brave enough to teach my 4yo about spit wads. You just may regret that teaching moment, my dear.

And I love Mr. Daddy's TST response.
