My Life Is A Sitcom

For my participation in Mama Kat's (pretty much world famous) Writer's Workshop, my chosen prompt:

2.) Share one of your “did that really just happen to me” life moments.

"I'm off to rehearsal" said my husband.

"What play are you in Dad?" asked our youngest.

"King Lear.  I'm the Duke of Burgundy and a few other smaller character's."

"Have fun!", we say and out the door he goes.  My youngest returns to the computer and Movie Star Planet.

I pick up the t.v. remote and find one of my favorite channels, Turner Classic Movies.  I see a movie beginning starring Rosalind Russel and Hayley Mills made in 1966.  It's a comedy and that's just what I'm in the mood for.

*Knock at the front door.  My oldest daughter's friend walks in wearing head-to-toe penguin footie pajamas.*

"Hey Katie", she says.  "Ready to go to the store?"

"Um, you're not wearing that, are you?" asks Katie.  "No."  (I think she actually was.)  "I'll go change first."  Katie goes into her bedroom to get some money for the store.  Her friend stands by me, in her penguin footie pajamas, and asks what I'm watching.  I answer, 'It's a movie called 'The Trouble With Angels'.

She asks "Isn't that the girl from The Parent Trap?"  Yes, I answer.  "Hey, is this the one where she becomes a Nun in the end?"

*beat* *beat* *beat*

'I wouldn't know.  I haven't seen this movie.  Thanks for that!'

*Cue audience laughter*

"Or, I don't know.  Maybe not!  I may be thinking of a different movie." she stumbles.

Katie comes out of her room and says, "I'm ready.  Let's go."  And out the door they go.

Yeah.  You do that.

*whaa* *whaa* *whaa*

What would life be without zany neighbors? :->

  1. Earlier today I was explaining how a conversation I had with my 17 year old would be appearing on my blog soon along with pictures. I stated, "He is blog fodder. You are all blog fodder." His response? "Will it make me famous?" Ummmm...no...This post just reminded me I need to get that one written down. I look forward to connecting with you more this week via our SITS tribe.
    *Scribe happy*

    1. "You are all blog fodder." Love that! I find the things my family and friends do/say so funny sometimes (not that they always do ;-> ) that I just have to write it down. This world is so crazy, we've got to keep our sense of humor!

      So happy to connect with you through our SITS tribe :-> Heading over to Scorpio Scribe now.

  3. And I thought my husband was Seinfeld :) met you at "Sorry, not Sorry Social. great blog!

    1. Thanks for commenting! Ah yes, the soap opera. I just hate drama and try so had to avoid it. (Some times that's not coffee in my coffee cup ;-> Mommy's happy place!) I'm off to check out Fascinations of a Vanilla Housewife :->
