Fly On The Wall On A Wacky Vacation

   
 Welcome to another edition of the Fly On The Wall Series, hosted by Karen at http://www.bakinginatornado.com. That pesky fly has been busy buzzing around the 12 bloggers participating in today's group challenge. He even followed me on a recent family vacation and left with an earful. My guess is that after spending a week with us on the road, he dove into the nearest martini to drown the memory of what he witnessed during our trip:

"I've had so much coffee on this road trip, I could hang a Starbuck's sign on my bladder."

"Stop feeding the pug banana bread! It may smell good going in but it smells really bad coming out."

"Don't make me laugh so hard in the car---I have to pee!"
"Next time remind me to get plastic seat covers..."

"Too bad it rained, because I was really looking forward to zip lining over an alligator pit."

"Why are we the only people in the hotel gym with Solo cups full of champagne?"
"Because the lounge was closed. This way we can drink and burn off the calories at the same time. Oh
look! There's champagne cup holders on every treadmill!"


"Did you just fart in the pool?"
"Um...no...why?"
"Because your swim trunks are billowing out like a flotation device."

"Oh great...take the guy with no cartilage in his knees on a rocky, ten mile hike through the woods...yeah, that's my idea of a fun, family
bonding moment."

"What on earth took you so long at the gas station?"
"We were comparing penises in the restroom."

"We've had so much to drink since we've been on vacation, my liver is crying out for an AA meeting."

"Stop dropping gas bombs in the car. You smell like processed ass."
"You're the one who bought me the fried chicken tenders, Dad. They upset my stomach."
"Chicken tenders? More like chicken stinkers out the butt."

"Nothing like driving a car with a transmission that bucks you out of your seat."

"We took a wrong turn on that last trail. I think we're lost. We could be in China for all I know."
"I think we've just entered another dimension, known as the Twilight Zone."
"Or we're starring in a new movie---Paranormal: The Woods Edition"
"I told you we should have left a trail of breadcrumbs..."

"Hon, you've eaten so much on this trip, I think we need to stop at Walmart and get you some men's maternity pants."

"Stop making booger patches on your side of the car!"

"Why aren't you going inside the caves with us?"
"Because I'm probably older than most of those stalagmites. And I'm claustrophobic. I might have a heart attack. Paramedics don't respond to cave calls."
"I don't understand what caused you to be so claustrophobic."
"I got trapped inside a mole hole as a child."

"Stop using the gingerbread cookie air freshener in the bathroom to mask your poops. Next year when I smell Christmas cookies baking in the oven, I'll think of poop."

"I know its been raining a lot, but it'll pass."
"Yeah, about as quickly as a gallstone."

"It's about time you got into a pool after 15 years. This is a HUGE event...sort of like man's first visit to the moon.... one small step for Marcia,
one giant leap into the pool."

"Why did you guys sprint ahead at the park and leave me behind in an open field with lightning, rain, 50 mile per hour winds and a funnel cloud above? You knew I couldn't run the mile back to the car with my bad knees."
"It's not our fault you're the injured buffalo in the herd."
"That means you'd leave me behind to be eaten by the wolves?"
"We didn't want to get hit by lightning or sucked up in a tornado. You were moving too slow for us!"
"I was busy clicking my heels, trying to get back to Kansas."



     And this, folks, is how we vacation Doyle style. I'm off now to swat a fly and fill my Solo cup with champagne. Be sure to visit the other bloggers in today's challenge!

  4. I'm so surprised that nobody in your family has come up with an invention to turn fossil fuels from your butts into gas for your car. Funny post, as always!

  6. Remind me to never get into an enclosed space with your family. Never mind, I think I'll remember all by myself.

    You guys are hilarious.

  9. I laughed SO hard!
    I can't decide my favorite part... the champagne workout, wounded buffalo in the field, pug bread. It is ALL so fantastic and memorable.

  11. You need to document EVERY event you go on with your family. I loved this! I will never look at a cute gingerbread man air-freshener the same, but I will definitely try the champagne next time I'm on an elliptical. Thank you, thank you for the laughs. <3

    1. I try to write everything down but when the family sees me doing it, they clam up...so I have to be sneaky about it! But they really are a fun bunch and they say the oddest things. never a dull moment over here. Glad I got you laughing! XO

  12. These are awesome!! Thanks for the laugh!

  13. You should have people pay you to take them on vacation. You know, like tour guides but better! HA HA!

    WHAT is your husband drinking on the treadmill and how sauced is he?!!!

    Thanks for the laughs, you never disappoint!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes!! I would make an EXCELLENT tour guide because everyone would get free jello shots and mini bottles of champagne. Then we could go down inside the caves and lick the water off the stalagmites. Too weird? OK then I'll just shut up and go back to my corner....

  14. Sounds like you had an awesome vacation - and some well deserved time with your boys.

  16. OMG... I laughed so hard at this post as usual... these two stood out and really made me laugh hard:

    "What on earth took you so long at the gas station?"
    "We were comparing penises in the restroom."



    "Why did you guys sprint ahead at the park and leave me behind in an open field with lightning, rain, 50 mile per hour winds and a funnel cloud above? You knew I couldn't run the mile back to the car with my bad knees."
    "It's not our fault you're the injured buffalo in the herd."
    "That means you'd leave me behind to be eaten by the wolves?"
    "We didn't want to get hit by lightning or sucked up in a tornado. You were moving too slow for us!"
    "I was busy clicking my heels, trying to get back to Kansas."

  19. I can see that you all had a wonderful time. Next time you should do a 'live' holiday show so we can all enjoy the fun you had from our sitting room chairs.

    MM, what on earth possessed the man with the checkered shorts to be hanging off those yellow handle bars, and when I zoomed in, I can see that someone else with flip-flops above on the counter? What were you all doing up there? It looks crazy.

    Love the idea of burning off the calories whilst your having a good drink, ha ha ha.

    1. The man with the checkered shorts is my husband haha! We are at a museum in this pic on an old train. My hubs is hanging from the bars while my son's girlfriend is leaning over from the top sleeper bunk. Yes, we SHOULD have a reality TV show. I bet it would be as popular as the Osbornes!

    2. The Osbornes wouldn't know what hit them. They would be making time to sit and watch what your family was doing, no joke :)

    Needless to say, we did NOT go back for lunch the next day as planned :)

    Fingers crossed I get to join in. Let's see if the banter of my colleagues is worthy of note, lol.
    I love the gym and swimming pool excerpts. Truthfully, I am sure we all think of fart when we see someone's clothes billowing *grin*
