A Week of Fridays

This week, besides readying the kids and bracing ourselves for the start of the new school year, we’re also cooking up some new stuff for the blog. We hope to add some special features soon.

We aren’t making any promises though.

You see, we are wives and mothers first, and blogging is about 114th on our list of responsibilities. All it takes is for one of the kids to get a cold (which then moves methodically through the grandkids, one at a time for six consecutive weeks) and we’re winging it. Should one of us get pregnant, new blogging plans are shelved for at least twelve months.

But there are no colds or pregnancies this week (not that we know of!), so we’re dreaming about ways to improve the blog and serve you better. Which is why we’re going to take the week off from writings posts, and send some laughs your way instead. Yep, it’s a whole week of nothing but Friday Funnies. (I predict a spike in our male audience this week—welcome guys). We’ll get started with the moment this woman’s age caught up with her:

A woman was sitting in the waiting room for her first appointment with a new dentist. She noticed his DDS diploma, which bore his full name. Suddenly, she remembered that a tall, handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name had been in her high school class so many years ago. Could this be the same guy I had a crush on way back then? she wondered.

She quickly discarded any such thought when she met the balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face. He’s way too old to have been my classmate, she thought to herself.

Still, after he examined her teeth, she asked, “Did you happen to attend Morgan Park High School?”

“Yes! I’m a Mustang,” he gleamed with pride.

“When did you graduate?” she asked.

“1959,” he replied. “Why do you ask?”

“You were in my class!” she exclaimed.

“Really?” he said, looking at her closely. “What did you teach?”
