I had a GREAT visit from my family recently. My mom, grandma and step dad flew down to visit us last week. Kevin and Chad (my step dad) are pretty good buddies. Chad has always been an extremely funny guy, he loves to tell stories and always, ALWAYS has the last laugh. About 10 years ago he had several severe strokes, caused by a rare blood disease. The strokes took away much of the use of his hands, and for a very long time took most of his speech away. But, with a lot of work, he gained back both the use of his hand and also learned to communicate again. I can’t imagine going from being a huge story-joke teller to having zero ability to communicate. But, Chad was able to work hard and get back his “funny”. You may recognize him from my blog, at any rate, back to my story. Kevin and Chad have become pretty good friends over the years, and each of them like to pick on the other. Each of them like to make the other the butt of whatever joke their telling and that’s how the visits usually go. One trying to one up the other with the jokes. Well, it has moved into an all out war with Kevin’s last prank.
I’ll give you three guesses as to what the picture on that piece of paper is. I’ll give you a hint. The black hat on my dad’s head was dangerously close to a naked set of these on that piece of paper. Never, I repeat, NEVER leave your hat unattended while you sleep. Your son-in-law will sabotage you. I’m locking my tooth brush up from now on.
I am curious to see what the last laugh between these two will be. Hope I don’t get caught in the cross fire.
