Over Christmas some of my cousins were in town and stayed at my house. I have decided that to feel super good about my self and have other people think i'm really funny I need to hang out with them more. I have friends, Karin most notably, who are very witty. I would not consider myself in this category. But when these kids are here everything I say is riotous. I get to use all of my "best stuff", which is not much, on them. Note the following...

10:30 p.m. on a work night after having just seen a movie...

Rachel & Will: "Are you gonna come over and watch Harry Potter with us?"
Me: "Probably not."
R & W: "Why not?" (said in fake whiny voices)
Me: "I have to get up at the butt crack of dawn!"
R & W: laughter... "but crack of dawn! that's awesome!"

a few moments later...

Aunt Donna: "Lindz, are you gonna come over and watch Harry Potter"
Rachel: "No, she has to get up at the butt crack of dawn"
Aunt Donna: EXCUSE ME? (with a very motherly look)
Me: Ummmm....ya I just said that to them...I'm SO sorry!

Note to self: know the age of your audience when saying "funny stuff".
