Ed loves to turn everything into an acronym. For example, he puts CRP (crushed red pepper) on his pizza. As we were waiting in line for a ride at Disney World, I hugged him and his ear touched my face. His ear was very cold, so I said, “Your ear is really cold!” He immediately made an acronym for cold ear syndrome: CES.
“So, you have CES,” I said, pronouncing it like “sess.”
I could see the wheels turning in his brain.
“The only cure for CES is to take a warm bath,” he said. “Do you know what that bath is called?”
“No,” I stupidly replied.
“A CES-pool!” Get it?
That husband of mine makes me laugh.
During our trip to Florida, we went to visit Ed’s cousin in Bredenton. We stayed at a nice hotel for the night, and Ed, of course, started talking to strangers. He kept running into an older gentleman who told him joke after joke after joke. He’d start off like this, “Here’s another one; when is a door not a door?”
“When it’s ajar!”
He also told us this joke:
Good morning Ginny,
I couldn’t believe it when I heard that we’re expecting 3-6 inches of snow this afternoon! I guess Steve next door was overly optimistic in running the gas out of his snow blower yesterday.
He had me for just a second, and then I remembered:
P.S. APRIL FOOLS! It’s supposed to be almost 70 degrees today…and no snow!
What’s tickled your funny bone lately?
