There is a nail behind the door to the upstairs that usually holds the flyswatter and my back scratcher. (If you don’t have a back scratcher, get one.) This summer that nail was reassigned to hold up the Record Of Awesomeness.
Actually, it was the Record of Funny (which in my book is the same the thing). We decided that a point would be awarded when somebody said the absolute funniest thing that could be said in a given situation.
We were pretty good at keeping the record straight for the first few, but then I just wound up giving myself a whole bunch, trusting that I would be funny sometime in the future.
Well, Brad is gone,so there was no reason to keep my ‘winning’ record up. (They knew where the marker was.) Now that nail is helping to solve a completely different problem.
Lloyd really likes Special K Red Berries but he only eats it once in a blue moon, so I wind up finishing the box. Without fail then next day he wants some cereal.
Today, we bought two boxes. One for the cereal cupboard, and one for the nail.
