here are a couple of funny things to brighten your day.
I was talking to a friend today and she said:
“my grandpa turned 88 and for his birthday he got to smoke a cigarette and have a steam bath”.
I thought this was hilarious, and a good reminder that it is not the money spent on a gift that counts, but how much the recipient really wants it.
Last night the boys pulled an all-nighter. The goal was to stay up all night long playing video games, xbox etc. It is Christmas break, so I figured why not. I bestowed my blessing in the form of a caffeinated soda for each boy. Kjell has accomplished the all nighter once before and this time, Broder was determined, really determined. When I got up this morning at 5am, both boys were still awake. I expressed my surprise that Broder was still going strong and he said:
“I have been putting ice cubes down my back to stay awake”.
Oh, yeah, that’s Broder.
