Excuse the Pun

Over dinner last night with the family, we got around to discussing current events. My mom, having been away from TV and the newspaper for most of the week (because she didn't realize my sister and brother-in-law have cable- their TV is so small you can't make out anything that is happening on it anyhow, and just forget about reading subtitles and besides she was too busy with baby Finn), was shocked to read about the guy, his mother and the penis pump/bomb at the airport. Talk about a case of needing to tell the truth! I mean, this guy who was so worried his mom would find out he packed/uses a penis pump lied to authorities saying the pump was a bomb. Smart thinking. You should have just owned up to it, man. Because now? EVERYONE knows you use a penis pump.

Then Double B chimes in about another penis-related debacle. It's a bit of old news but still- talk about taking the law into your own hands. This judge was taking liberties with himself under the bench while ruling over court cases. My mom, appalled, said, "What a whack job!" And Dokey, Double B and I all burst out laughing like the pre-pubescent kids we apparently are. It took a second or two but then my mom's face went "Oh!" and she started laughing too.

Yes, these are the things we Jones' discuss over dinner.

Reminds me of the time I was sitting around with my mom, my grandmother, and a friend of my grandma's. The friend mentioned that a mutual friend of theirs was in the hospital.

"She has a vagina in her heart."

Now, in my head I automatically corrected her - my mom and sister are both nurses, so I knew she meant ANGINA. But it took me a second to realize what she had said.

"Gee," I said. "I hate when I have one of THOSE in my heart."

A second later and the whole room was laughing. The poor woman turned about 98 shades of red.
