  • it almost snuck past me!
    Hey! How did I miss this post/offer? I check your blog daily, Lou, even if I don't always have time to write something. And I would love to see this show!

    So let's see...

    Well, a funny thing happened when I went to see a couple of shows last weekend. At the first theatre, they offered me a senior discount. At the second theatre, they offered me a student discount.


    Well, I thought it was funny, anyway.

    A funny thing happened on the way to my own wedding, which was Friday the 13th. My husband and I both worked that day and my husband had to work later than expected. Did not make it home untill about an hour before the wedding and it was snowing that day!! Made it to the justice of the peace only to be told that he was running behind and we would have to wait and reschedule. Well we finally did it that day and have been married for almost five years now!
  • Magna
    A funny thing happened during Magna cum Murder one year. Magna is a mystery convention in Muncie that I've worked at for a few years. One year during the second day I had an incredible piercing pain on the left side of my gut. During lunch Kathryn Kennison, Magna's coordinator, noticed I wasn't eating and I mentioned my pain. So she, of course, rushes to the microphone and asks the entire convention if there is a doctor in the house because Austin has appendicitis. Various authors who have medical background take me to the back of the room to look at me. After deducing the appendix is on the right side, they figured out I pulled a muscle during the week. After a few hours rest I was perfectly fine, but the rest of the convention still thought I had appendicitis. I just kept telling people I recovered quickly throughout the weekend.

    ...at our church garden wedding! The priest forgot that Wednesdays were "lawn care day" at the church and about halfway through the ceremony, a big Dixie Chopper headed toward us. But the lawn guy figured out what was going on and QUICKLY drove to the other side of the property. We all laughed about it afterwards!

    When I was watching my 4 year old grandson over night. We had a fun time eating popcorm and watching a movie the off to bed. In the morning he wanted to sit on the kitchen counter while I made breakfast. Taking a carton of eggs from the fridge - he commented:

    "Nana guess what? .... Eggs don't bounce!"
  • Oh Deer!
    Walking my two dogs one morning on the banks of the White River near the WRYC, a large deer with a huge 10 pt rack came walking right up to us. Followed us all the way home like a little lost puppy, and stood looking in the door after we came in.
  • Boys vs. Girls
    A funny thing happened when my two boys were visiting my best friend's two girls. Girls apparently scream. A lot. My boys were taken back each and every time. They've been angels since the moment we left.

  • A funny thing happened on the way to my sister's wedding
    ... I was the maid of honor and forgot to bring my future brother-in-law's ring with me when I walked down the aisle. When the exchange of rings portion of the ceremony came, his cousin saved the day by taking off his wedding ring and giving it to my sister so she could place it on her "now" husband's finger. She tells people, "I really did marry the family!" Oops! Thank goodness she's forgiven me! :o)
  • A Funny Thing Happened
    While my 13yr old daughter was at her friends. The adults had spent hours trying to figure out how to turn one and use their new 60" TV. Pouring over the manuals. Daughter passes by, presses two buttons (on, and Satellite). Adults sit stunned in silence.
  • Wrong Room
    Went to the Men's Room only to find my wife was in a stool. Said "Get out of here"..scared her silly.
    • A funny thing happened...
      A younger collegue of mine and I were traveling together for business. We went out to dinner and had to wait to be seated. This was a lovely restaurant in DC that had an outside bar on the Potamac. As we approached the area to enter the bar, the person at the entrance asked for ID. My collegue-who is always talking about how much younger she is than me-a whole 3 years-started to pull out her ID. He said-I don't need to see yours-I need to see hers-pointing to me. It was a wonderful moment!!! I coudldn't stop laughing....I kid her about it as often as I can.
    • "In a stool?"
      That is a funny thing.
    • Goodwill's Gain....
      A funny thing happened when my husband went on a cleaning rampage and gave a lot of stuff to Goodwill...including a fancy purse and pair of shoes I had borrowed from my sister!
    • A funny thing happened....
      at church. My then toddler age son was getting very cranky while we were standing for a hymn. I reached down to pick him up. When I did, he pushed his feet down against my elastic waistband skirt, pulling it down past my booty offering the family standing behind us something besides the sermon to think about on their way home that day. *sigh* I didn't wear elastic waistbands again until my kids were too old to carry!
