unexpected texts, and other painful things

 

 

My sister sent me a picture the other day.

 

You know… my sister of a million hairstyles?

 

The funny one?

The one who inherited the “this only happens to me” gene.  Except, it apparently only happens to both of us.

 

The picture.  Yeeeeeaaaaah… it took me awhile.

Until she sent a followup explanation via text.

So you’ll notice that I was immediately helpful.  I gave her the best advice I had.

 

And I can get away with offering that advice because SQUIRREL.

And yes, I call her “Ju”.  As in short for “Junebug”.  But unfortunately when I try to get her attention in public, I get all kinds of nasty looks for what they think I’m yelling, “Jew, hey JEW – I’m over here!”

 

Good times.

 

Now, for a closeup of what my poor sister looked like with her hand stuck in her VCR…

Yeah, she’s pretty much killing me for posting this.

 

I mean, if she ever gets free from that VCR.

 

 

So while the poor chick’s left hand was stuck, she apparently was able to text me with her right hand.  Which I’m sure she soon regretted.

So I threw out the only pun I could think of.

 

She was not impressed.

She was stuck for nearly an hour.

 

You try explaining to your dad what the text message “Are you aware your daughter is stuck in the VCR?” means.

 

And then I kinda felt bad.  Okay, really bad after I saw the picture of the aftermath.

And I knew that she wouldn’t be able to blog about it with a busted up hand.  So I decided to do her a favor and post it for her.  And, y’know, share it on Facebook and Twitter, et al.  Because I’m thoughtful like that.

 

And because NO ONE would believe me if I said it happened to someone other than me.

 

I’m sure she’ll be appreciative.

Help me out… what puns did I miss?  You guys think of the best ones!

Too funny! I could picture one of my kids in that scenario, with the hand stuck inside the VCR or something, tear-stained faces and all. =)

Oh no! That looks very painful. I wish you could have given her a hand. (That's all I can come up with.)

The Ju nickname in the store is hilarious! Have a great week Rach.

Oh good lord - that is great! One ring to rule them all and in the VCR bind them?

(-:

Props to her for still having a VCR - you'd think it'd be kinder to her since it's an endangered species (-:

Hahahaaa! At least I got a cool original hubby-drawn-on wedding ring out of the deal! Cuz, yeah....the swelling won't let me get the real one back on...SMH Love the endangered species comment Tamar SB-LOL! It's a combo dvd/vcr player if that helps...;)

No pun comes to mind, but it does remind me of the time in Jr. High when I got my fingers stuck in the beaters while making chocolate chip cookies and having to go to the hospital with the beaters still stuck to my hand and in my pajamas. It was a 12 year old's nightmare.

Yelling "Jew" in a store sounds like my experience when my kids were younger and it was time to leave the park or someplace like that. My friends would call their kids, "Hey Campbell kids, it's time to go!" And I would say, "Hey White girls, playtime is over." Good times!

Your stories make me chuckle!

Your stories are HILARIOUS! I feel bad that she was stuck, but I laughed my way through this post!

Jenny said...

Maybe if she pushed Fast Forward she wouldn't have been stuck so long! LOL Sorry but you asked. ;-)

Just when you think you've seen it all. Love your stories.
