Things that are making my week

In bullet points for your viewing pleasure:

  • Seeing the ultra-conservative CEO of our parent company try and dance at a staff block party celebrating construction of a new wing. If only I'd had a mini video camera I could have shared his super spaz-ticity with you. Picture a "suit" walking over hot coals with ants in his pants. It looked something like that. And I experienced pure joy when he turned three shades of red as he danced. Because I knew he was highly embarassed at his lack of skills and probably forced in to shaming himself by his staff who I'm sure were trying to make him appear less stuffy . Yep watching him squirm was fun. Literally and figuratively.

  • my son's comment after his grandma tried to clean his nose and came across a particular little stubborn boog she couldn't get. "I don't know Grandma, maybe it's backed up to my brain"

  • my son at the dentist last night, thinking up every excuse he could not to have to get in to the chair "If you make me do this, I swear I'm going to cuss, dammit". Proof he is my child

  • and this. I freakin love this commercial...

    I love it when the "suits" try to get down. Very funny.

    I love that commercial, too. I always do a quick spot check before I go anywhere because I'm notorious for spilling my drinks all over myself. My kids think it's awesome... me, not so much.

    Your son at the dentist - too funny. I love that commercial too. I am soooo glad my stains can't talk for me.

    And your son at the dentist...sounds like my nephew (who is also 5). "I swear I'll swear, dammit" hahaha

    A booger backed up to his brain? That is the kind of hilarious, creative stuff only kids say. Love it!

    I love seeing coworkers/my superiors/stuffy folks trying to "cut loose".
    My favorite was when I had to socialize with a curmudgeonly coworker who got reallllyyy schnockered at a work function.

    He still can't look me in the eye when we talk. HA!

    I can't watch that commercial without being close to tears at the end. I get giddy every time it comes on.

    My Gah, that is the funniest thing on TV. Thanks for posting it!
