Fly On The Wall In Happy Town

   
 Welcome to another edition of the Fly On The Wall group challenge, hosted by Karen of http://www.bakinginatornado.com  13 bloggers are participating today and inviting you to catch a glimpse of what REALLY goes on in their homes when they think no one is looking.  But the fly knows, and he's here to give away all of his secrets.
     When the fly came to my house this month, he saw what makes me happiest: time spent with my family and the freedom to blog about them. I love the quirkiness that runs in our gene pool and have always taught my children to embrace their inner weirdness.
     If you were a fly on the wall at my house, you would have overheard some of these oddball comments in our home:

"Close your mouth while you're eating. You sound like a cow chewing cud."

"I can't eat my scrambled eggs by the window anymore. The pigeons on the sill think I'm eating their cousins."

"Any teenager who sprays Axe throughout the house deserves a good throttling."

"When the office pooper takes a break, everyone knows it's goin' down in toilet town."

"I just burped up a piece of chicken and re-chewed it. That was my after dinner snack."

"I saw lots of spandex camel toes at the gym today."

"What are you doing with this fossilized granola bar in your purse---saving it for the zombie apocalypse?"

"For Christmas, I'm going to ask Santa for an artificial urinary sphincter."

"The pugs are tearing the sofa pillows apart!"
"Ahh….but the entertainment value of a pug tug-of-war is priceless."

"I gave you the energy drink so that you'd be pumped up to do yard work, not play air guitar with a rake!"

"Got a new bag of nuts for you, son."
"Are you saying I need to grow a pair?"

"I was on a safari in the bathroom and I just spotted a South African toilet snake."

"Nutella is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."
"No….just fat."

"This coffee doesn't work for me anymore. I think someone is punking me by filling the pot with decaf."

"I tried to hide the Halloween candy but our son is like a drug sniffing dog when it comes to chocolate."

     Hope you enjoyed your little visit to Happy Town, where toilets require a double flush and the air smells like Axe cologne.  Be sure to stop by and visit all of the other bloggers crazy enough to share a  personal slice of their home life with you!

  1. How easily my guys can get into an argument. The discussion stemmed from the regurgitated chicken, with my son saying it isn't a burp if solids come up, and my husband insisting it is. Really? Well...thanks for the lovely conversation starter ;-)
    By the way - those pugs are the cutest things ever!!! I may have to re-think my "no more dogs" stand.

  4. I think any place where the toilets need a double flush is lucky to smell like Axe cologne. Just sayin'.

    1. You are SOOO correct! I would rather smell the Axe than his….south African toilet snake!

  5. Now, a snake in the toilet is not a good sign, especially if your knees are bent :(
    And God didn't tell you to eat the whole tub of nutella did he? So you can't blame him for the extra calories covering the thighs, ha ha ha.

    The burped up chicken made me feel sick. I can just imagine it all chewed up, half digested, smelling and gross then someone actually eating it again, yukky.

    Have a wonderful crazy weekend Mama, I'm rushing off to read more of your great posts In The Powder Room. It's a great way to start the weekend.

    1. Glad you liked it! Seriously--I can't eat eggs by the window. We have a LOT of birds in our yard every morning because we feed them seeds. But then they sit on the window sill and watch me….eat eggs…it just feels very awkward….

  13. Fun post. Looks like you have a fun family. A bit of disfunction makes t even better!

    Happy Town, where toilets require a double flush and the air smells like Axe cologne - sounds like our apartment! At least that's what my gal tells me!

  16. Maybe my family is TOO weird. I'm not always "allowed" to write about what goes on in our crazy lives. You're lucky that your kids don't mind.

    1. Oh, they mind…..but the gave up fighting it a long time ago….

    2. When I lived in CT I used to write for a local free alternative paper. I sometimes wrote about family-related stuff, and they all learned to be careful what they said around me...because it could end up in a column in the paper the next week :)

    3. My kids no longer have a choice. Anything they say is fair game now….
