Thoughts for Thursday: Laughter

Thoughts for Thursday: Laughter

It’s late Wed night and I’ve had a wonky kind of day.  Not sure what the funk is… I had a hard time waking up this morning and hauling my carcass out of bed to go up to Orem for an extra few hours at work.  And then after running errands with Brent and coming home, I tried writing a post for tomorrow’s TFT and worked on editing some pictures and was chatting it up with Amaryllis on Google Talk… the next thing I new I was waking myself up snoring on my desk.  Sooooo….. I bid adieu to sweet A who I totally “dissed” and dragged myself up the stairs to my bedroom around 3 and laid down for what was supposed to be a 30 min power nap. (uhhh…“3 hour cruise”) Yup.  Brent woke me up on his way out the door to a city council meeting.  I put a movie in the dvd player and fell back asleep…. this time being woken up by a phone call reminding me I was supposed to be a meeting for church.  OOPS!  Anyway… I don’t think I’m sick.  I think I’m just worn out and tired.   We’ve been staying up entirely way too late the past couple of weeks, too.

Then there’s mother nature. 

She’s in the dog house with me this week.

Last week we had some GORGEOUS days… even NO JACKET or SWEATER days….  And today she is snowing on us.  I swear…  Mother Nature is schizophrenic.

Ok, enough whining… I promise, this TFT is REALLY about Laughter. 😛


“Shrek, Brad Pitt and Jennifer Lopez were all having lunch together.
Shrek said, ‘I have always thought that I’m the strongest man in the World, but how can I be sure?

Brad Pitt said, ‘I’m pretty sure I’m the hottest man alive but I’ve Never had it confirmed.’

Jennifer Lopez agreed. ‘I’m told I’m the sexiest of them all, but Sometimes I wonder.’

They all decided that the best way to find out if their beliefs were true was to approach the wicked Queen’s mirror to confirm for them whether Shrek was the strongest, Brad Pitt was the hottest and Jennifer Lopez was the sexiest.

They agreed to meet again the next day for lunch to discuss their findings.

The next day Shrek walked up with a smile. ‘Well, it’s true. The mirror told me that I am the strongest man in the world.’

Brad Pitt followed and boasted, ‘It is true, it has been confirmed that I am the hottest man alive!!’

Jennifer Lopez walked in, head bent, tears in her eyes and asked, “Who in the heck is Erin Grotegut?”

Knock Knock…..

Leave me a joke in the comments and I will draw a name for some fun surprise RAK on Saturday…. I’ve got a new box of chipboard letters from the Comstock collection by We R Memory Keepers sitting here on my desk… looking for a new home 🙂

  1. I can’t think of a joke right now even though Bjorn and Mathias are full of the sweetest “Knock, Knock” jokes these days. Anyway, just wanted to stop by and say I’m glad to see you’ve surfaced again! As for tired, I think we can blame it on Mother Nature. She’s making trouble in Minnesota, too! About laughter, I can honestly say I don’t know if I’d still be alive were it not for my ability to laugh. It IS the best medicine!

  2. I’m no good at joke telling, sorry! I was wondering where you were last night…although I took the time to work on Gwendolyn! (hee, hee)Mother Nature is going to wreak havoc in our neighborhood if the forecasters are to be believed…it’s snowing right now. Supposed to be the biggest dump all season (which may not be saying much seeing as we haven’t had much snow to speak off at all…)Hope your body got the rest it needed!

  3. Hi, Erin~I’m normally a “lurker” and I’m honestly inspired and amazed by your wonderfufl creations. This is our family’s favorite joke right now. You have to imagine our 9 YO DS telling it . . .Did you hear about the invisible man who married the invisible woman? Yeah, it turns out their kids aren’t much to look at, either.hee hee . . . “Tex” tells it with the best timing. We laugh every time!

  4. Thanks for the giggle…now here’s one for you that my son told me these morning.Chuck Norris had a staring contest with the sun and won. Chuck Norris’ calendar goes straight from March 31 to April 2 ’cause nobody fools Chuck Norris.Chuck Norris sleeps with a pillow under his gun.He he he…thanks for letting us share! LOL

  5. Thanks for making me laugh! I agree mother nature is pretty messed up right now. I so want spring and I want it now!!!! *pouting & stomping foot* Okay, enough of my temper tantrum. Here's a cute winter joke for you, courtesy of my kids. What did one snowman say to the other? Do you smell carrots? LOL
