"We're THIS Funny" Or "Russell Gets No Respect"

Everyone was in the bathroom. The whole family. Having a family meeting while Russell was trying to have his own time. This happens to him more times than he'll ever admit. But I will. Right here. Right now.

I asked Russell. "If you look at the entire population, I mean, the whole POPULATION of whatever, the country, the world, what percentage would you think was funny?"

Russell was sitting (the only one sitting in the bathroom, I might add), and said, "funny as in HA HA?"

"Yes, how many of us are HA-HA funny?"

"And I'm this funny."

She said, "You laughed at my joke. That makes me this funny."


Awww... my sweet funny little--

Russell, still sitting, interrupted my silent praise of my child. "Yeah, you're all hilarious."

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.
