Fly On The Wall In A Home For Lunatics

     Welcome to another edition of the Fly On The Wall group posts, hosted by Karen of Baking In A Tornado. Today 14 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you'd see if you were a fly on the wall in their homes.

     There are days when I feel like I'm living with lunatics, but let's be honest---life would be pretty dull around here if I didn't have my crazy family around to give me the inspiration for my blog posts. Here are a few snippets of conversation that were floating around my house this week. Yeah, I know…the fly is shaking his head at me, too.


"I can't sleep. I'm thinking about coleslaw."
"You're hungry?"
"No, I just wanna know why it's called 'Coleslaw' instead of 'Coldslaw.'
"You woke me at 2:00 a.m. to ask me about coleslaw??"
"Yeah, because it's bothering me."
"I have the answer. It's called GOOGLE."

"Throwing up while wearing a mouth guard is right up there on the list of the worst things that I've had happen to me. "

"Have you seen my mind? I think I've lost it."
"Yes, you left it at the hospital after the last kid was born."

"That dog turns into a piranha pug when she sleeps in our bed. If you accidentally bump into her, she snaps. I'm too afraid to reach down and grab the covers because I might lose a limb and end up with nothing but a stub for an arm."

"I'm fat."
"I'm chafed."
"That sounds like a law firm to me. 'Got into an auto accident? Call Fat and Chafin.' Injury at work? Call the lawyers at Fat and Chafin'….. 1-800-CHUBS.'"

"Shopping at a discount grocery store that has potato chips in the same aisle with dairy products is like having an enema without the tube. Nothing is in the right place."

"We're almost empty nesters but we can't get the last egg out of the nest. It just keeps rolling back in."

"Why aren't you dancing?"
"Because I need to poop, and I'm afraid if I jiggle too hard, something is going to fall out."

"The folds of fat on my body have a dual purpose. They serve as a storage shelf for peanut M&Ms. Melt in your mouth, not in your fat fold."

"Forget calling that wedding picture you just posted on your Facebook wall as your 'Throw Back Thursday' photo. That picture should be called your 'Throw Back to the Jurassic Era photo'."


And that, folks, is just another day in the lunatic house that I call home.

  14. I think my house is "dullsville" compared to yours. My daughter and I used to joke that a reality show on our lives would be terribly boring: she sitting and studying, me organizing. The most exciting thing we had going on was dog antics, but she died last March, so now it is JUST TOO QUIET.

  15. That fly must be having such a blast! Or maybe it's completely lost its mind, LOL! This was such a fun read, especially on a Monday! Thanks for perking me up, Marcia!

    1. I wish I could take credit for these posts but really, it's all just the recorded words from my family when they don't see me off in a corner, feverishly writing down their comments…..

  17. That question about the coleslaw has kept me up at night too. I don't know why I didn't think to google it either. And throwing up while wearing a mouthguard? Ew.

    1. Ha-ha!! Disgusting, isn;t it? Leave it to me to say something no one else EVER wants to think about.

  18. I always, always, ALWAYS love your Fly on the Wall posts! And I totally agree with the mouth guard sentiment...GROSS!
