Recently I was thinking that I haven’t done a humorous post in a while, so today’s the day!! Well, it’s funny to me anyway.
Yesterday, I had to take my son, Daniel, for a follow-up appointment with our doctor to see how his throat is healing after his tonsillectomy. Daniel is the ham-bone of the family, and as we had to wait quite a while in the exam room he became quite restless, and that’s when the comedian always emerges. He had me laughing so hard that I was sure they were going to kick us out. There was a bendable floor lamp whose light end looked exactly like one of those old fashioned microphones from the 30’s. So, of course being Daniel, he bent it over and started singing into it. Without missing a beat, he then swung the light around into my eyes and asked, “have you been drinking ma’am?”. What followed was one slapstick act after another (including some rather rude ones which I can’t repeat here) until at one point I was laughing so hard I almost choked on my chewing gum!! That’s my Daniel 🙂
Anyway, on the drive home I asked Daniel what photo I should use for my blog today, and he suggested the picture that I took of him right before his surgery, standing in a hospital gown. I thought he was just kidding because remember he’s a teenager, and you’re not allowed to embarrass a teenager. That’s the worst thing a parent can do! And of course, hospital gowns don’t exactly portray men in a masculine light now do they? Daniel, however, assured me that he was serious. So, today’s blog is not me sharing one of my most beautiful photos. Instead, it’s me sharing with you my handsome son in a “gown”. Isn’t he lovely? Sorry about the poor quality, but he assures me that he could never look bad in a photo!! LOL
