Happy Hump Day!

It's another cold, gloomy day here in Minnesota and I am once again questioning exactly why it is that I choose to live here. Although we have gotten snow, none of it has stayed...but I know it is just around the corner. I actually don't mind the snow all that much as it is pretty and we do have fun playing in it, when it's not too cold of course. It's the bitter, cold wind and the gloominess outside, that gets to me after awhile...that's when I just want to hibernate inside my house. We just got back from shopping for new boots and snow pants and let me tell you, putting two kids in and out of car seats is bad enough when it's nice out, but when it's cold out, it really bites. Okay, enough complaining.

Whenever I get feeling this way, I try to keep my sense of humor by finding funny things to read or look at many of your blogs! Today was my lucky day as my daughter sent me a short little story and another friend sent me a great picture of a men's bathroom. So, in the spirit of lightening my mood, I thought I would share these with you. I hope you enjoy! Happy hump day!

The miracle of toilet paper

Fresh from my shower, I stand in front of the mirror complaining to my
husband that my breasts are too small. Instead of characteristically telling
me it's not so, he uncharacteristically comes up with a suggestion. 'If you
want your breasts to grow, then every day take a
piece of toilet paper and rub it between them for a few seconds.'

Willing to try anything, I fetch a piece of toilet paper and stand in front
of the mirror, rubbing it between my breasts. 'How long will
this take?' I asked.

'They will grow larger over a period of years.' my husband replies. I

'Do you really think rubbing a piece of toilet paper between my breasts
every day will make my breasts larger over the years?'

Without missing a beat he says 'Worked for your butt, didn't it?'

He's still alive, and with a great deal of therapy, he may even walk again.
Although, he will probably continue to take his meals through a straw.

Men's Restroom Mural -------- Read before looking at picture

Edge Designs is an all-women run company
That designs interior office space. They had a
Recent opportunity to do an office project in

The client allowed the women of this
Company a free hand in all design aspects.
The client was a company that was also
Run by all women execs.............

The result.........well.....We all know that
Men never talk, never look at each other....
And never laugh much in the restroom....
The men's room is a serious and quiet place...
But now...with the addition of one mural
On the wall......lets just say the men's
Restroom is a place of laughter and smiles.

I love both the jokes. So funny. You made me laugh.
Sorry you are having a gloomy day...I hope it gets better. I agree with the getting toddlers in and out of car seats, such a pain in life...I really forgot what it was like myself. In about 10 years or so, I may be doing it again w/ grand that is a scary thought.
take care,

I literally laughed out loud at these. Great picture and joke!
I really miss the snow and a real winter but I do KNOW that after about a week, I would be done. You can come see me any time. Just bring your hip hop booty! LOL

ah funnies...just what we needed on a cold winter day!

thanks for sharing...

and getting little ones in and out of the car is challenging all the time...adding bad weather and extra layers must add a little time to the process...yikes..

haha cool bathroom! I thought it was going to be something else... once got a forward about urinals in all different shapes!
I have heard that joke before but it is a good one. Ah, men.
I love snow, but that is only because we only get it occassionally. It must be quite an effort everyday.

As your husband why boys don't use toilet paper. I'd love to know why they think drip dry is the way to go. Are they afraid that it will shrink from contact?

Love the bathroom.

I wonder why public toilets called stalls?
