Okay, you all know I’m not a funny person, but I’m on a humor roll lately! Seriously, for 3 years in a row now I’ve made at least 1 funny crack that’s made my husband laugh out loud. It’s a streak! First I got him with the “whopperhole” comment a couple of years ago. Then last year I had him in stitches over the “Rockwell with a twist of King” reference. And the other night I had him with a new word I made up.
He’d asked me to read over one of his posts before he published it, and I was cracking up while reading it. Have you ever had it happen that you read something incorrectly? He’d written, “Anyway, I doubt any of you need me to tell you what the movie is about.” I read, “Anyway, I doubt think any of you …” So I said, “Oops, there’s a typo here.”
He leaned down to see the monitor, an edge of panic in his voice, “Where?”
I pointed to the screen and as I did, I saw that there really wasn’t a typo but that I’d misread it. Trying to cover my own butt I said, “Oh wait, it’s not a typo after all … it’s an … eye-po.” Anything to avoid saying, ‘I was wrong’!
He started laughing – and believe me when I tell you – that’s NO easy feat for me! “Did you read that in one of your tweets?” he asked.
“No … “
“You mean you just made that up? Really? All by yourself? That’s pretty good! You should tweet that.” High praise from Caesar. *snort*
So that’s my new word, eye-po, use it with love and think of me. I’m still on my funny streak and boy, I’m heating things up. Lord knows what I’ll come up with next year! Think I can get a gig in Vegas?
