    Stale Nuts and Blowing Balls (again)

    Here is a repost from last year. It still makes me laugh.

    Have you ever had one of those days where you just giggle all day? Come on. Fess up.

    Today was one of those for me. T (my stepdad who is also my boss) eats peanuts all day long. He's a little guy who flies around like a hummingbird so I guess he needs extra nourishment. Today when I came into work, the bag of peanuts was open. I burst out laughing and told him that he had stale nuts. (Insert nervous giggle along with outright guffawing). A little later (a minute) he decided to see how stale his nuts were. As we are working across from each other at the work bench I could smell his breath. It was all I could do to stop myself from saying, "I can smell your stale nuts from here". Again, I'm giggling and there is no way I'm letting him know why.

    The nut story reminds me of another one. My friend and I were shopping just before Christmas in the mall. There was a cart in the center with a man selling flavored nuts. You know the ones that smell so delicious? So my friend decides that she has to go get some. I told her she should ask the vendor if she can smell his nuts first before she buys them. This lady standing next to us in the aisle rolled her eyes at me and walked away. I, of course, could not breathe because I was laughing so hard.

    I have a really cute jacket that has pom poms on the ends of the strings for the hood. The funny thing about them is that the balls hit me right at the end of my nipples. So now I have balls on my nipples. It's been very windy the past several days. As I was walking up to the school to pick up my daughter, the wind blew the pom poms back. I again burst out in a fit of giggles and was still laughing when I entered the office. The secretary asked me what was so funny and I told her that it was so windy that it blew my balls back. The entire office exploded with laughter and I don't think much more work got done today.

    I have always thought it funny when I went to the renasaunce festival and they were selling the kings nuts. Now I see I am not the only one with an odd sense of humor.

    Very funny, thanks for the laugh.

    Jenn, you have the dirtiest sense of humour, we could be sisters. lol

    Over here we have a brand of nuts called...wait for it...Nobby's Nuts. Now that does make me laugh.

    I haven't tried them yet but they sound good!

    Since I don't think I was around when this post was originally put up thanks for reposting it. I needed a good laugh.

    I'm all caught up on your recent posts that I missed. My internet at work is touchy at best and I don't get on the computer at home, for reasons I will not go into here. If you'd like to know, drop me an email.
