Happy Friday, Heroes! Today I bring you the brilliance of Captain Earthquake. See, the Captain doesn’t like to shop. And by “shop” I mean entering any store, even ones that stock frivolous items such as food. He’s always hated stores. I have no idea why. Thankfully, he has managed to improve his attitude to the point that it’s at least tolerable to buy groceries with him. I’ve done what I can to make it easier for him, but the bottom line is that there are days when I just HAVE to buy food. It’s unavoidable. Who knew??
Annnnyhow. We were entering a grocery store last week and he was walking along next to me saying “uhhhh” in a disgusted tone. I replied “Uhhhhh” back to him. He responded in kind. After several “uhhhhs” back and forth I asked, “Why are we saying Uhhhhhhh?”.
To which he responded, “Because this is uhhhhhh-noying.”
Ba-dum-bum. Even he couldn’t hide a smile when I cracked up.
Welcome to the May 20, 2011 edition of fun for your friday.
