All talk and no action. Except for the good vibrations

It is only fitting that over a four-day weekend when I have a combination of the creeping crud and back problems that Wonderhubby and I should watch the home shopping network.

Erotica style.


It was an entire show dedicated to ... um ... playthings. Some of them were kinda cute and playful. Some were reasonably artistic. Some of them looked like Long Dong Silver meets the silicone valley. (Ok, you have to admit that was reasonably clever ...)

Others were just outright scary-looking. John Holmes would have been jealous.


We were snuggled together in the dark, watching, pointing, giggling, wondering.

And then it happened.

It was a blue silicone thingy, with a silver bullet inside. What the saleswomen were saying about it, I don't know or care.

But Wonderhubby was suddenly alert.

"Look!" he yelled. "No, really! Look!"

I looked ... and didn't see anything but a blue silicone thingy with a silver bullet inside.

"No," he insisted. "I swear, you can see the face of Jesus in it!"

It has been more than three days, and I have not stopped laughing.

It's not nice to do that to someone with a hacking cough and a bad back.

It is said that laughter is the best medicine.

He's everywhere, he's everywhere!

You do realize, of course, that Christians are the original reformed Jews, right?

OMG! Where was his mind at? I imagine you had a hard time breathing after that laughfest! :)

I always see Jesus when I .......

I probably should have kept that one to myself.

These media giants will do anything to sell a product! Pahahaha!!

Mommakin said...

I don't even know what to say! Wish I'd said what nikki did, though...

Clearly that means Jesus approves of the Home Shopping Network. Or something.

OH, please tell me that you have Tivo, DVR or teh like and you backed it up and saved that for future reference! Cause... priceless.
I hope you're feeling better soon!

Jaina said...

Lol. Wow. :) I hope you feel better soon!

Ramit said...

Yeah I don't have that channel! Thank Goodness!

Nikki: Duh!!!

Pamela said...

You guys should have a sitcom.

MJ said...

LOL! I know you've got a horrible cough, and that couldn't have helped much, but really, that was perfect.
