Fly On The Wall In A Silly House

     Welcome to another edition of Fly On The Wall group postings, hosted by Karen of Baking In A Tornado. Today, Eight bloggers are inviting you into their homes to catch a glimpse of what goes on behind closed doors.

     Summertime in south Florida is ridiculously hot, and sometimes the intense heat fries our brains. That's the only explanation I have for the weird things that have been said around my house this past month......

"I'm scared to book a cruise. I've never been on one before."
"Come on, Mom, it'll be fun. Let's just go ahead and make the reservations!"
"No way---I remember how Titanic ended."
"Mom, there are no icebergs in the Bahamas......"

"You know your marriage is strong when you can survive head lice or a termite invasion without killing each other."

"That meat was awful and so tough. It wasn't prime rib---tasted more like prime cat."

"Coffee is my magic elixir."
"Well, they just said in the news that coffee promotes longevity."
"In that case, I'm going to live longer than Betty White."

"I really want to breed our pup at least once before he gets neutered. I need to find a good breeder."
"What are you trying to do, pimp out our pug?"

"I went on social media for just a few minutes. Two hours later, there I was, watching Youtube videos on how to toilet train cats. And I don't even own a cat."

"You have millionaire tastes on a chicken nugget budget."

"I'm starting a new diet, but I'm allowing myself one cheat day a week."
"Yeah, I said that once too, but my cheat day lasted a whole year."

ME: "This ice cream cone is stale" (continues to eat all the ice cream inside). "Here, I don't want anymore. You can have the rest."
HUBS: (Stares at empty, soggy bottom of cone) "How generous of you....."

"Just because I came from an era when there were no microwave ovens or cable TV does NOT mean that there were dinosaurs roaming the earth when I was born."

"I'm starving! When is dinner?"
"Not for awhile. I have to feed and walk the dogs first."
"I guess I know my place in the family food chain...."

"Stop showing me these graphic photos on the internet of human oddities. They'll give me nightmares of waking up with a tail."

"You never realize how little self control you have until someone walks into the room with a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts."

  1. Pimping out your pug -- sounds like a bumper sticker. I laughed out loud about disciplining yourself to be on social for 2 minutes and then learning how to toilet train your cat.

    1. Soooo true, isn't it? I always get stuck watching these weird videos late at night instead of writing like I should BE!!

  2. Everyone situation was funnier than the last. What a blast you all have, what great memories.

  3. I want to know how you walk into a room with Krispy Krene donuts. If there are any left in the box when they get in the room, that person has more self control than any human I know.

    1. Right?!? They're like potato chips----you can't eat just ONE.

  4. Ha ha! Hilarious. And yet so REAL. I think that's what makes it so funny :-)

    1. My family is a crazy bunch that always provides plenty of fodder for my blog.

  5. Ha! I've had a cheat day that lasted a decade.

  6. Prime cat? Lice and termites? LOL your family is so awesome. Said it before and will say it again - I so want to come for dinner there. LOVE YOU PEOPLE!!! :D

  7. haahahaha. I want to be a fly on your wall. I cannot resist a donut!

    1. I can't either....and I always need more than one....

  8. I may live longer than Betty White too!

  9. Flies have to be careful in your house.
    Belly laughing whilst trying to stick to a wall
    is not easily done. I know. I've tried it. Today I'm safe.
    And I can laugh all I want. Good thing because your
    fly on the wall posts are always hilarious.
    P.S. We're looking for a stud muffin for our Scarlett.
    Don't know if it'll work though. She's a Great Dane! 😜

    1. I cannot imagine mating our pug boy with a Great Dane....what would that turn out to be?? A PugDane? A Danepug??

  10. I too have zero self control when Krispy Kremes are in the room. They are just too good to refuse. I love the millionaires tastes on a chicken nugget budget, I'll have to remember it :)

    1. I swear to God----my future son-in-law hears this from us all of the time. He likes NICE things...but I keep telling him he cannot afford it YET.....

  11. It's too funny how your family gets involved with your blog posts. Funny stuff. Do they ever get embarrassed by any of this I wonder?

  12. You guys make such epic times. Thanks for always allowing us to tag along in your adventures. :)
