I promise ... and so I deliver

First, let me just say that your overwhelming response to my recording of "Unchained Melody" was ... totally overwhelming. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your amazing words of kindness and praise.

A couple people who said they couldn't play it wanted me to send it to them. If you really want this, shoot me an email at jsongbird4 (at) aol (dot) com, and I'll send you the original mp3. (And thank you for wanting to hear it so much that you're willing to do that!)

And for those of you who thought I should be on "American Idol" -- I do so love you all. But really? I'm waaaaaaaaay too old for them!

OK, on to why you're REALLY here this morning:

More from the snowy wilds of the Planet of Janet.

(And to protect myself from CPS, may I please point out that for the most part, nothing nasty was spoken in earshot of the Roo-girl. Unless you see her as a conversation participant, she was not around or in earshot. Sometimes, my boys have a little bit of decorum!)

Girlfriend talk:

Drummer Man: She wants to live on her own before we live together.

Evil Mother: That's probably a good idea.

Drummer Man: Yeah, well, that's her position on it anyway.

Evil Mother: What's your position?

Drama King: Missionary.

Wonderhubby: Oh, that can get boring.

Drummer Man: I'm with you there.

At your local Wendy's restaurant:

Wonderhubby: You could have had a buffalo burger at that other place we were at last time.

Drama King: Yeah, or ostrich ... or venison. That's what Z-man had.

Evil Mother: *shudder* Feh.

Drummer Man: *not always the sharpest tool in the shed* Was it real buffalo or was it like buffalo wings ... just called that, even though it's really chicken?

The Roo-girl: *her blondeness WAAAAAAY showing* Buffalo wings are chicken?

Loud laughing and general hysteria ensued. Followed by this:

Wonderhubby: There also is beefalo.

The Roo-girl: *clearly having a bad hair day* Is that a Jewish thing?

Evil Mother: WHAT????

The Roo-Girl: You know ... beef-alah ... like mammalah. It's a Jewish thing, right?

All of us in unison: Beef-alah??? Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Ski boots = bad:

Drummer Man: Maybe in 10 years, they'll have ski boots that aren't a pain to get into.

Evil Mother: Well, they do make those rear-entry boots.

Drama King: *says nothing but bursts into maniacal hysterics*

Evil Mother: You. Bad. You're BAD. And gross, too.

Drummer Man: Hey, Mom, we're adults, ya know? We get this stuff from TV and movies.

Drama King: Well, maybe YOU do. I get it from real life.

Evil Mother: Lalalalalalala I can't hear you!!!!

To be continued ...

Janet, I just love you! Your family, your sense of humor...everything. But my dream is now to sing a duet with you, I think our voices would be very complimentary. So, meet me in Nashville, we'll cut our first single and be on our way. (Sorry if you don't like country but it's an easier in, and I have a friend who writes songs (One was sung at the end of "The ultimate Gift))

Okay? Thank you for sharing your conversations with your kids- with my wacked up sense of humor and their beginning wacked up senses of humor, I definitely see conversations like these in my future.

ChrisB said...

I just sent you an email but I don't know if you will get it I had a pop up telling me it was not a valid email address!

I love these conversations you have with your children~ very funny :)

Karly said...

I want to join your family and be funny like your kids. Will you adopt me?

Tink said...

These always crack me up. And for the record Missionary IS boring. ;)


You and your family have a wickedley funny sense of humor..I love it when you share these conversations.

The Rotten Correspondent said...

Oh, dear. I have a feeling that I have a lot of these conversations in my future too. Sigh. And chuckle.

Thanks again for sending the mp3 of your song. Loved it!!

lisa marie said...

YOu guys are like living with a circus. :) I mean that in a good way.

Phoenix said...

What's really funny is every time you do one of these, I miss my brother. I bet this is what my mom has to put up with. ;)

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Can't. Stop. Laughing.

Love it!

Robinella said...

Oh man, that's rich and to think it's real. It's like the Cleavers(sp?) only in Today's world. Love it.

And I finally got to hear your recording and cried a wee bit. So sweet. I wonder if my hubs would put me on his IPod if I recorded a song for him. Somehow I doubt it. ;-0

Burfica said...

I just love listening in on your conversations. Makes me laugh so hard.

Jenni said...

LOL! Now off to google "mammalah". Does Babelfish do Yiddish to English?

Karina said...

Hillarious! Although, I have to tell you, the idea of having these types of conversations with my parents mortifies me...and I'm in my 30's. I don't think my mom and I even talked about sex EVER until last year. Seriously! ;-)

Jenni said...

Google says you made it up;o) Is it just some affectionate term for "mom"? Sheesh. This feels like a buffalo wing question. There are some buffalo farms out here, maybe I should ask them what part they get the "wings" from.

Oh, my LORDY!! Janet!! I can't believe your kids say that to you. Egads. I've been married nine years and my parents still think Sweetie Darling was brought by the stork!! I can't belive you had that missionary banter. Dear God! You are one fun mommy!
