Something Funny Happened in Florida

Ed loves to turn everything into an acronym. For example, he puts CRP (crushed red pepper) on his pizza. As we were waiting in line for a ride at Disney World, I hugged him and his ear touched my face. His ear was very cold, so I said, “Your ear is really cold!” He immediately made an acronym for cold ear syndrome: CES.

“So, you have CES,” I said, pronouncing it like “sess.”

I could see the wheels turning in his brain.

“The only cure for CES is to take a warm bath,” he said. “Do you know what that bath is called?”

“No,” I stupidly replied.

“A CES-pool!” Get it?

That husband of mine makes me laugh.

During our trip to Florida, we went to visit Ed’s cousin in Bredenton. We stayed at a nice hotel for the night, and Ed, of course, started talking to strangers. He kept running into an older gentleman who told him joke after joke after joke. He’d start off like this, “Here’s another one; when is a door not a door?”

“When it’s ajar!”

He also told us this joke:

So it’s all fun and games until we are back in Chicago, and Ed sends me this email at 6:30 a.m.

Good morning Ginny,

I couldn’t believe it when I heard that we’re expecting 3-6 inches of snow this afternoon! I guess Steve next door was overly optimistic in running the gas out of his snow blower yesterday.

He had me for just a second, and then I remembered:

P.S. APRIL FOOLS! It’s supposed to be almost 70 degrees today…and no snow!

What’s tickled your funny bone lately?

  1. Loved the cespool!

    We never say peppermint or parking space at home. We call them for p-mints and p-spaces. Now I have moved to Norway and need to take anti conception pills. Guess what they are called: P-pills! Honestly truly!

  3. haha! That’s awesome. All of it.
    When I was a kid, my dog went to the groomer and they did the strangest thing – they shaved the hair around her butt!! So I said she had “SBS” – Scary Butt Syndrome. Only, it was really SAS – but I didn’t want to use that word on your blog.

  4. The CES pool tickled me! My husband fooled me on April 1. Looked pretty awful and told me he was sick….I thought for just a moment and then realized. I told him if he ever is sick, I won’t believe him!

    Hope you had a nice Easter weekend.
