A Little Humor - for a Change

This morning my 7 year old step-son got up around 7:15 a.m. and walked out of his bedroom into the living room, got on the couch with the remote control by his hand and fell asleep without a word or other action and slept there for the next 2 1/2 hours.

It's nice - with all the craziness (e.g. now 800,000 Lebanese civilians having fled from their homes) - to simply be able to get a brief laugh out of something.

Our new house has a creek in back. Several days ago the "Owner Cat" - whose house is several houses down the block and across the street gave me an extremely disgusted look which clearly said: "What right do YOU have to be in MY Backyard!!!!" This was the 2nd time this had happened - but the cat was more emphatic this time.

Years ago, we were in a food store and I saw the mother of a two year old boy blush extremely when her son said loudly (with an inflection obviously similar to hers): "OH SHIP!!"

Any simple similar stories would be most welcome in response!

how about this one:

my dad tells me that when I was a child, quite young, he and I were out one summer day. We were sitting next to a nun, who smiled at me sweetly, obviously thinking I was a lovely child. Just then, a fly landed on my arm. I yelled at it, "get the hell off me, you damn fly!" The nun gave my father, who was laughing hysterically, a dirty look and hustled away!
