This past week has been good for some laughs at our house.
To begin with, our cat jumped into the center of our Messianic Seder dinner table last Friday evening during Passover. Muppy is well behaved and isolates herself from others so we were shocked when she crashed our party and her tail caught on fire. My husband's wit was sharp as he explained that we were suppose to roast a lamb tonight, but instead we will use our cat. Oy vey, the smell of burnt fir!
When the night began, we all took bets on how long it would be before my son-in-law's pressed, white shirt would stain. That has been pretty much his history. I was so careful sitting across from him, and I meticulously poured the grape juice slowly for each cup we raised in prayer. Even with the surprise of the cat jumping on the table, and four cups of grape juice later, he was "stainless!" That's a first!
My granddaughter called me over the weekend to tell me about the basket she received for Easter. I asked her what did you find in that basket? She said: "Chocolate and chocolate." Sounds good to me. I learned that a new Max & Ruby DVD was hidden in there, too!
This is funny! I got a fax at work the other day. It was in regards to the company's new sales promotion. Let me just say that in years passed, sales promotions were five star blessings! I can count on my fingers and toes the times our office's sales quotas met the requirements for company perks. It was marvelous to be given trips to hoity toity resorts in Hawaii, Costa Rica, Mexico, Bahamas, etc.
But the economy stinks and now the incentive to sell the product is.....are you ready for this (I wasn't) a new polo shirt! Yeah!
