Just Hangin' Out This Summer

Just a few days left to get in the drawing for a copy of The Lady of Bolton Hill.

Thank you for those of you who pitched in with your Dad Stories. They are all pretty and showcased HERE at Southern Belle View. I loved each and every story. Some made me tear up; some made me laugh out loud. Thank you for sharing. It meant a lot.

I follow a few of my former students on Twitter, and often their their tweets crack me up. Thought I’d replay a few.

-Medicine commercials: One thing it fixes plus 25 ways it can kill you.
-Saw a man doing yard work in his tightie whiteys on the way home. Guess that’s one way to beat the heat.
-I wish it was socially acceptable for men to shave their armpit hair because it’s just plain nasty.
-Met two little British girls today who went to the Royal Wedding. Jealousy overwhelmed me in ways that I can’t even explain.
-My sister definitely changed races. #spraytangonewrong
-What genius decided to confuse the world and have a town named Kansas in Oklahama?”Last year, I went to a -Robot Convention. Have you been before?” haha I love meeting nice people on buses!
-I’ve been trying to teach my mom the art of being calm, cool and collected. I’d say the only C she has down is crazy.
-Maybe all of the rain will flood the school and we won’t have to go tomorrow.
-I don’t care how old you are, when the ketchup bottle makes a fart noise, it’s funny.
-It’s probably bad that I just had to Google a picture of a tux because I don’t know the difference between that and suit-ish things.
-Whenever I drive over a cross walk I’m always scared that there is somebody under an invisibility cloak walking across that I can’t see.

Finally, not students, but funny tweets all the same:
“Pakistan is seriously Whackistan if they expect us to believe they didn’t know where OBL was. Are they on Crackistan?!” Mo Rocca

(from author Jennifer Weiner, pronounced WHY-ner) “Today’s revelation: Googling “Weiner photos” will not end well.”

“I assume that anyone who stopped following me on Twitter died, I hope peacefully. I’m sorry for their loss.” Mo Rocca

Thanks to former students, Sydney 1, Sydney 2, Gab, Karly, and Ashley for their contributions to my day.

Have a great weekend!

    Those tweeks were HILARIOUS!!!! You make me laugh as usual :)

    My favorite was, “I’ve been trying to teach my mom the art of being calm, cool and collected. I’d say the only C she has down is crazy,” because that’s totally me.

    I chuckled at all the tweets, but this one slayed me:

    “I’ve been trying to teach my mom the art of being calm, cool and collected. I’d say the only C she has down is crazy.”

    Your former students are HILARIOUS.
