Nobody makes me laugh harder than my son. And, I'm not the only one who thinks he's funny. Almost everyone who has ever met him says he's hilarious. His best friend's mom has been telling me for at least 5 years now that he needs to go into stand-up comedy. She's been known to call me in the middle of dinner at a restaurant, where she's having dinner with my son, JUST to tell me how hilarious he is.
Anyway, I had to share this with you guys because it's STILL making me laugh!!!
Last night, he was out with friends. It was getting late, I was tired, so I shot him a text. Here's our "conversation."
Holy crap, I'm STILL laughing out loud!!
He had me cracking up this afternoon again. Things around here have been a bit crappy, to say the least. I mentioned the air going out, and needing to be fixed. I also mentioned the flooding going on in my freakin' basement. Without boring you with all the minutia, Stud and I had to take a big load of nasty towels to the laundromat this afternoon.
This was the first time he had ever stepped foot in a laundromat. I don't think he was digging it. The laundromat is about 100 yards from a 7-11. On the way there, I asked him if he wanted a Slurpee, his favorite thing on the planet! He had said no. But, after we sat there for a while, in the un-air-conditioned laundromat, I was suddenly the one who really wanted a Slurpee. So, I left him with the laundry and went to get Slurpees.
When I went to pay for our drinks, the cashier asked me if I was going to get a ticket for the Mega Millions Lottery. I am absolutely NOT the kind of person who buys lottery tickets, but for some reason, after chatting with Hannah (the cashier) for a few minutes, I found myself buying 2 quick-picks. I made sure to ask her her name so I can give her a little something when I win.
I went back to the laundromat, and gave Stud his Slurpee. We were sitting there talking when I told him how I had bought a couple of lottery tickets. He stopped drinking his Slurpee, turned toward me, and said, "WHAT did you do?" I told him again, and he says "You bought a lottery ticket?"
"Given your luck lately, do you think that was the smartest decision?" Ha!! He's such a smartass!!
Then, he kept going.
"So, we're sitting here at the laundromat, drinking Slurpees, you don't have a JOB, and now you're buying LOTTERY TICKETS?! You don't see it?!? Are we stopping at the trailer park on the way home?"
I couldn't help it, I spit Slurpee all over the place! That kid just cracks my shit up.
