Here’s the thing. My mom is STILL in the hospital. Which is really depressing. Really really really depressing.
So, what does one do while hanging with their mom in a yicky hospital avoiding all the yicky medical talk?
OF COURSE! Bring up all the stupid crap the family can do that was so hilarious (and not a little awe-inspiring) when they were a child. That apparently Mom doesn’t remember A-N-Y OF.
So the cavalry was called in, aka my accordion-playing Aunt Heidi.
She remembered it ALL.
– That my grandmother could touch her tongue to her nose.
– That my grandfather could wiggle his ears. A LOT.
– That SHE could bend her thumb back to touch her arm AND put her toe in her mouth.
At that point I pretty much had my mother peeing in her hospital gown, so, yeah, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED – but I was intrigued. My aunt, not known for her flexibility or grace, could put her TOE in her MOUTH?
I had to try.
And I made my sister and my son do it with me.
Stupid Blogger Tricks was born.
Clearly I am good at putting my foot in my mouth.
HA HA HA HA!!!
Torrie and Rachel were so amazed by my abilities, they are joining in too. Well, Rachel has to get back to Australia first, because her trick involves twirling her baby in the air while washing the dishes or some such shit, but I know it’s gonna be AWESOME.
But, Torrie? Torrie can catch a grape from about 20 feet in the air. IN HER MOUTH.
They don’t teach that stuff in college, folks.
And the only other blogger I caught on tape, even though I think I pretty much told the whole room about this idea, whether they wanted to hear about it or not, was Liz from Mom 101. Who, hands down has the CUTEST stupid blogger trick with her imitation of Beaker. Seriously.
Now it’s your turn.
