Does everyone know who Jack Handy is ?
Deep Thoughts on Saturday Night Live ?
*I think the mistake a lot of us make is thinking the state-appointed shrink is our friend.
*I hope life isn't a big joke, because I don't get it.
*I think a pillow should be the symbol of peace, not the dove. The pillow has more feathers than the dove, and it doesn't have that dangerous beak.
*If you ever drop your keys into a river of molten lava, forget em', cause, man, they're gone.
I could list one quote after another, they crack me up. You have to feel the stupidity when you read them to enjoy them. It's a little Napoleon Dynamite'ish.
Ok, to get to my point.
I was getting ready to vacuum the floors. (one of my FAVORITE past times :)
Syd comes running in to the living room, "Mommy can I help !"
I am busy stacking toys, books, crap from the floor that won't fit in to the vacuum on to couches, chairs, and beds.
I headed to her room and started cleaning up the mess Cameron made while she was away at pre-school. "Sure you can help sweetheart, you can help by picking up some of this stuff on the floor."
Syd says to me, "I can't mommy, my hands are full." she immediately goes to the shelf and starts grabbing stuff. "See mommy, my hands are full, so I can't help you clean up."
I look up at her, she has a purse in one hand and her camera dangling over the wrist of her other hand.
So I guess when she said help, she clearly meant that help referred to her running around which ever room I happened to be vacuuming and jumping from couch to chair to bed screaming as if the vacuum was going to get her. And if that wasn't a big enough thrill ride...she could just stand right in front of the vacuum screaming as it came to her feet. Her feet which are planted on top of the carpet I'm trying to vacuum.
Back and around to my whole reason for bringing up Jack Handy. One of my favorite deep thoughts was this one :
To me, it's a good idea to always carry two sacks of something when you walk around. That way, if anybody says, "Hey, can you give me a hand?" you can say, "Sorry, got these sacks."
It's like Sydney was reading a script.
Damn it took me a long time to make my point.
Have a good day....and smile.
