These are a few odd actual conversations/remarks or potential conversations that have made us laugh lately:
Months ago, Mini admitted to me that she thought that 'Hyundai' was plural for Honda. As in, a person would use that word if there were more than one Hondas in view. Now when I see a Hyundai, I smile.
The health club recently announced that if you're working out intensely, then you're allowed to work out without your mask. This made Tank realize that this new rule COULD lead to the following . . . "You don't look like you're working out intensely, get your mask back on." How embarrassing would that be? Exercise types might have their own definition of intense, right? Anyway, the possibility that someone working at the health club might need to speak this way to a patron who they think is breaking the rules, made us laugh.
|Mini just discovered that Tank rated|
his father on Google. Two years ago.
We never knew. Mini chimed it too.
"You've touched me before," - A former patient of Coach's was at Easter Sunday mass. When the gentleman and Coach attempted to shake hands or slap one another on the back or have some kind of physical contact while masked, their arms/hands sort of stuttered mid-air. Awkward. The former patient uttered the above phrase.
Translation: you can shake my hand, I've been your patient and you've laid hands on me. Instead it came out the above way. Obviously not well thought out. Since we are a goofy bunch, we've adopted this quote as a new family favorite.
"I'm all yours, Tim. Do whatever you want with me." My caddies say this ALL THE TIME. Credit for coining this phrase goes to a club member. Apparently the guy is goofy and socially awkward. According to my caddies, most of the members cannot stand him. Tank compared him to Michael Scott. This member approached the caddy master, Tim - the most sarcastic guy alive, and said the above. Tim froze, contorting his face to deliver a squished up 'EWW' look. My caddies enjoyed this moment immensely.
Note: 'Michael Scott' of the golf course is also obsessed (according to Mini -the boys tend to agree) with our family. He told Mini that he thinks Coach and I are raising great kids and that he'd like to meet Coach and I. She thinks this 'we're great' thought stems from a greatly exaggerated story Lad told him years ago about how he (Lad) helped out the member's kids at the pool when they were being picked on.
Um, the guy can't be THAT goofy, if he thinks we're great - right? When I suggest this to my caddies, I encounter eye-rolls.
Anyone have a fun quote that only your family gets, or that has been generated by the pandemic?
