Rescheduled Services and Funnies, a Random and Happy Tuesday Post


It's time once again for a random and happy Tuesday, linking up with Stacy's Random Thoughts at Stacy Uncorked and Sandee at Comedy Plus 

Up until a couple of days ago, every time i went out in the morning to take Coda for her morning constitutional, all i could hear was the roar of generators.  Now, i hear crickets, and i do mean actual, real crickets.  It's a lovely sound.

This is funeral week.  Mr. C from our church, Mr. Jack (Ms. PA's husband), and my brother all this week.  The hurricane really messed up a lot of schedules.

Things go on though, and we have funnies.  Like the following Senior Texting Codes.


ATD - at the doctor. 

BFF - best friend fell.

BTW -bring the wheelchair.

BYOT - bring your own teeth. 

FWIW - forgot where I was.

GPA- gotta pee again

GGPBL - gotta go, pacemaker battery low.

GHA - got heartburn again. 

IMHO - is my hearing aid on? 

LMDO - laughing my dentures out. 

OMMR - on my massage recliner 

ROFLACGU - rolling on floor laughing and can't get up.

Here are some real life examples of why teachers and parents might decide to drink.

Have a blessed and beautiful day, everyone!

I hope all those lives can be suitably commemorated and celebrated.
And thank you for the Senior codes.

Those test answers are hilarious!

Nancy Chan said...

The answers to the tests are funny. The teachers wouldn't know whether to cry or laugh when marking these tests.

My GBGV Life said...

The senior codes are being sent to Gramma and we love the tests, how funny! Sorry it is a funeral week and we are very sorry to hear your brother passed away. Hugs to you.

Great humour today. Thanx Mimi.

God bless.

Charlotte (MotherOwl) said...

Funeral week ... hugs and prayers from Denmark.
Those answers some of them cracked me up.
And acorn squash day ... I thought it was what I was doing on my way home, namely stepping on, and thus squashing acorns. I had to look it up to see if I was rigth and inadvertently did something on the right day XD I learned something new today.
And now I'm caught up with your blog, I don't know why I was a day behind for some days.
