Everyone’s a comedian

August 6, 2010

Husband to me (about lawyers):
“We are high priests of the language.
Can you pick him out of the crowd?

And this, also from the high priest of language:
“Has the milk of human kindness curdled in your breast?

And yesterday, while I was drying my hair, he came tearing up the stairs holding his heart. “What’s wrong?” I asked. “Do you need your nitroglycerin?” “Oh, you’re drying your hair,” he said. “Thank God. I thought you were vaccuming.”

He’s a funny guy. Sometimes it’s like living with Henny Youngman, though. (Does anyone remember who he is?)

And the other day, from my 30-year-old trainer,
who seems to have only middle-aged female clients:
“I wonder if it’s because I have such a good relationship with my mom?

(Uh, yeah, Chris? I wouldn’t make that one of your marketing messages.
Just a thought.)

    I like to tell this one.

    ME: “You know my body is Hispanic…”
    OTHER: “Really, your body is Hispanic?”
    ME: “Yeah it must be…because all my body parts keep moving South of the border!”

    Humor is the best weapon of all!

  2. This made me smile, nice to have lots of trainers in your life!
