Fun Monday #53: the what in the world is so funny edition

Sayre, who always Smiles, is our hostess for this week's Fun Monday.

She is interested in funny things we see in our day-to-day lives.

Here is what she says we need to do for today:

Every day as I go to work, I see things around me that make me laugh. Usually these are in the forms of signs. So take your camera with you as you go about your business and take a picture of the things that make you laugh along the way (but it doesn't necessarily HAVE to be a sign).

Well, I am going to pull a Swampy and break the rules, sorta.

Cuz I tried all week long to find something funny in my travels, and I failed to be highly amused by anything.

However, I DID have get a smile from my baby girl for Valentine's Day.

She is the queen of the crappy homemade cards. Don't just take my word for it. Check out her trademark:



Anyway, Valentine's morning dawned, and here is what awaited me:


Why, it's a crappy homemade card!!

Open it up and here was what was inside:


Singles Awareness Day? Don't know where she got THAT, but oh that Roo-girl. She knows the direct route to my heart: Toblerone bars. Mmmmmm. Also please take note of the directions at the bottom to "Check the freezer."

So, goody-two-shoes-and-direction-follower that I am, I dutifully trekked to the freezer. Where I found this:


Cuteness, thy name is Roo-girl. U-no bars? They are hard to find ... and they taste best when frozen. And my daughter? Totally knows my weaknesses. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

If you look carefully where I directed you NOT to look at the ice cream in our freezer (!!), you will see her directions to look in the pantry -- where the soup is.

Where I found this:


There actually were two heart-shaped sugar cookies in separate plastic bags. One for me, and one for Wonderhubby (but he ate his before I should shoot the photo!). Apparently, her Roo-ness was baking while WH and I were meeting the Drama King and his boyfriend.

Anyway, it's not a funny sign or an internet giggle, but it did make me smile.

And it tasted good too! And... how can you resist this face?


So now if you want LAUGHS, go visit the rest of the Fun Monday crowd. We're pretty fun, all right!!

I love 'scavenger hunt' gifts - the hunt is half the fun! That makes me smile - especially the picture at the end - what a doll!

That's great.
In college I worked at a Subway and we called Valentine's Day "SALAD day" Singles Are Losers All Day. Nice, huh?
We gave away a free cookie with each salad. (Please note: This is not a Subway thing, only us college students did this that one time...many years ago)
