Not a Great Week

  It started off okay.  I finished the photo challenge with a pic of me on a pony.  Then the Sinus virus hit.  I tried to fight it but, I lost and missed too much work.  Then my wife was in a car crash.  She was a passenger and their car was hit by the Ralph’s lunch truck.   Yes, she got run over by the same barf wagon that visits my workplace daily.  I teased her that she just wanted everyone I work with to eat healthier.  She is bruised but, not really injured and I told her that she made a brave sacrifice for my work buddies.  

  It is amazing to me that I can still be funny when I feel like crap.  Carol says about her bruises “it only hurts when I laugh”.  Oopppss!!!  She married the wrong guy.

  Missing work at my new job gave me some anxiety so I visited my friend Dr. Goldbloops.  Dr. Goldbloops told me an old joke of his that made me feel better.  Here it is:

Young polar bear comes home from school, this is a true story.

He asks his mom “Mom, Grandma and Grandpa were polar bears weren’t they?

His mother answers “Of course they were son.  Go get washed up for dinner.

At the dinner table the young polar bear asks his father “Dad, Nanny and Pappy were both polar bears weren’t they?

Father answers “Of course they were.  Why do you ask such a silly question?

Young polar bear answers “Cuz I’m freezing!”.



That’s the best I can do this week.  Next week I promise I’ll do better.

  3. It's kind of a groaner, but you're playing along when you don't feel well and your wife is all bruised up. The two of you get better.

    Have a terrific Silly Sunday. :)

  9. Sorry about your sinus infection, and what a sacrifice your wife made for your co-workers. Hope she is feeling better soon. Stick to the polar bear joke and she won't laugh as much :) (Just kidding, I actually laughed.)

    1. That's what is great about Carol. I can tell that joke every week and she never remembers. Thanks.

  10. hey 54. Anyone can have a sense of humor when everything is going well. The real measure of people is there ability to be funny when the chips are down. In my book you are an exepliry human being. Please continue on your pursuit of all things that are awesome.

  12. Well that definitely qualifies for a crappy week. Cold season has officially begun, Hubs has a cold this week. Hope your wife's bruises heal in spite of her laughter.

  13. That joke sure is cute. I can sympathize with your sinus probems, for I have been battling them for the past few weeks. The change of the seasons really gets me every year.

    Thanks for visiting and sharing your joke at Royalegacy Reviews and More.

  23. That does sound like you had a really rough time when you wrote that. The polar bear joke was cute, I did get a chuckle out of it. I do think it's ironic that your wife got hit by the roach coach that frequents your workplace. Definitely a bad day.....

    1. Yes, I happened to recycle that joke as I came down with a fever yesterday.
