Funny Friday: Weekend with the Peeps

Last weekend my dad and his wife came down for a visit. Here are a couple of the conversations that had me saying, WTH. Some of the best laughter I've had this year...

Conversation 1: While watching a tribute to Michael Jackson...
Dad's Wife: Who is Jamal?
Me, Hubs, & Sis: Huh?
Dad's Wife: He is always referring to somebody named Jamal in his songs and I wonder who this Jamal guy is.
Me: Do you mean when he says, "Shamon'?"
Sis: Yeah, you me "Shamon." It's like he is saying, "come on."
Everyone: laughter

Conversation 2: While watching a tribute to Michael Jackson (The Way You Make Me Feel video)...

Dad: Oh, isn't that Tavoy right there on the end?
Me, Hubs, & Sis: Tavoy?
Dad: Yeah! Look!
Me: You mean Latoya???
Dad: Oh yeah whatever...
Everyone: laughter

Conversation 3: Talking about the
Blogalicious 2009 Conference
Sis: India Arie even made a quick appearance at The Blogrollers' party.
Dad: Who's India Arie?
Everyone except Dad: OMG!!!!

Conversation 4: In car listening to India Arie...
Dad: I don't know if I like her?

Me: What do you mean? Why not?

Dad: Well, when we were watching her on TV it sounded like she was doing know...drug chants.

Me: Drug chants? What the heck is a drug chant?

Dad: You that rap stuff.

Me: OMG!!! Drug chants? Where did you even get that from? And India Arie is not a rap artist.

Dad: Was she the one with the short hair or the one with the big hair (
referring to Jill Scott)?

Me: She was the one with the short hair, but Jill Scott was the other one and she's not a rap artist either.

Dad: Well she sounded like she was doing drug chants.

Sigh. Shaking my head.
Hubs: So why are you calling it drug chanting?

Dad: Because all those rap guys do drugs.

Everyone except Dad: Big SIGH...laughter

Conversation #5: Talking about shooting guns
Hubs: We have plenty of deer out here.
Sis: They even have turkeys walking around.
Dad: Yeah. I remember riding bareback on a mule and shooting birds out of trees when I was a kid.
Me: WOW!
Everyone: laughter

I mean did he really say, "bareback on a mule?" What century was this man born in?

What is the funniest thing your parent has said to you in his/her old age?

Oh my gosh, that was hilarious!!!! LOL about the rap guys!!

I remember when we were little, my dad used to tell us not to wear "cutex." My sister and I would be like, "Cutex?" He meant nailpolish! LOL

And it is times like these where it really hits me that this man is my father...I am related to this person. Makes me sad for myself. But what a compliment to our mother! We obviously got the brains from her!

I know I got my moms sense of humor. She says something hysterical on a daily basis but it's of course when I'm asked what is when I can't recall a thing. Your parents are so funny.

My best, Lynn
