Wanna hear a story?

Are you tired of Mattisms yet?

So we were in the van going to church yesterday and from the back of the van, I heard Hayley tell Matt, "Hey, Matt, let's play a game. I'll say one word, then you say another word, and we'll take turns adding words and we'll make up a story. OK? I'll start." So she started: "The"

And Matt paused for a moment, thoughtfully, and replied, "End."

I laughed so hard that I almost drove off the road. Hayley and Jimmy both laughed. We had to explain it to Paul, but once he got it he laughed too.

I am thankful for funny things. Laughter heals. Laughter brings people together. Laughter makes life not boring. I'm thankful for Monty Python, Jerry Seinfeld, Brian Regan, Jim Gaffigan, the movie "Tommy Boy," every episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000, Rifftrax, pratfalls, doubletakes, the websites I Can Has Cheezburger and Cake Wrecks, and mostly my children. And Jim. Believe it or not, from that quiet exterior has come a few sarcastic remarks (at my expense) that have caused me to ROTFLOL despite being the butt of the joke.

That is one way to end a game that didn't sound like THAT much fun!! That is great.
He and Hayley played it more successfully on the way home. He actually likes that kind of game.

I figured he liked it, but it was a clever finisher. Wish I had that ace in my pocket when you and Julie would make me play Monopoly.
