In which i HATE that



You know what I hate?? I hate when I wake up in the middle of the night and I write the worlds greatest and most fantastic post IN MY HEAD and then …THEN I wake up in the morning and all I can remember is that I wrote the worlds greatest and most fantastic post.  Can I remember what I said in it?? NO!!


Yeah, I hate that.  Kevin was asking me what it was about and I just remember that it was a list … a list of funny observations I’ve had while on vacation.


Of course, the two Cadillac marguerites might have had something to do with the memory loss.  I’m really not sure.


I’m not going to go into detail about my vacation but some funny and/ or unusual things have happened.


We got here on our vacation on Saturday and because of delays and whatnot our first day by the pool was Sunday. So we are hanging out by the pool and as I was looking towards the beach I saw that there was a parasailer out on the ocean and I can’t believe how he’s jerking all around.  I mean it looks really dangerous and I’m pretty sure the guy is going to die.  Being that it was a windy day I finally tell Kevin “holy shit that guys gonna die. Look at how he’s jerking around” to which Kevin replies ” Lynn. That’s a toy; like a toy kite.  Haven’t you noticed it hasn’t moved at all?”   I mean, obviously if I had noticed that I wouldn’t have been so stupid to ask.  Asshole.


Same day I’m lying on the chair and I see a line way up high.  Now it’s a beautiful day so I have my sunglasses on and there’s a LOT of glare.


Me.                 Look at that jettrail

Kevin:             what jettrail?

Me:                 the one up there, way high.  It’s so straight.


A little later


Me:                 wow, there’s another jettrail on the same line

Kevin:             Hmmm

Me:                 what are the odds?

 Kevin:             hmmm

Me:                 … and they’re so straight.  Where do you think they’re going?

Kevin:             no idea


And still later


Me:                 that must be a major plane route

Kevin:             why do you say that?

Me:                 I mean, they’re all on the EXACT same path

Kevin:             bizarre huh?

Me:                 I mean how many planes fly on the EXACT same path everyday

 Kevin:             I have no idea


And even later


Me:                hey wait a minute!

 Kevin:             what?

 Me:                 that’s not a jettrail!

Kevin:             no Lynn, it’s not

 Me:                 shit. That’s a wire above me

 Kevin:             yeah, about 20 feet above your head

 Me:                 did you know that?

 Kevin:             yeah

 Me:                 you asshole

 Kevin:             hahahaha

 Me:                 you let me go on for hours

 Kevin:             it was so funny

 Me:                 asshole

 Kevin:             you are the least observant person I know

 Me:                 why do you say that?

 Kevin:             the parasailer this morning and now this

 Me:                 oh Kevin, 25 years of marriage down the drain


You see the kind of people I have to deal with? No wonder I’m so fucked up!

    While reading this I kept thinking WTF is a jetrail, as I have never heard that term before. Now I know it’s a wire. Thanks for clearing it all up.

      Julie, did they not have jets in Kentucky?? Figures…hahaha

        Nope. No jets in Kentucky or in Chicago. Seriously, I have never heard that word before. I assume it’s the exhaust stream left behind? Go Big Blue!!

    Oh man, we’d have so much fun on vacation. We’d giggle over shit like this the whole damned time while our husbands rolled their eyes at us.

    My best friend and I do stuff like this ALL THE TIME. Pretty sure it’s why we travel together. So we can laugh so hard we almost throw up.

      what is the point of going on a trip if you can’t laugh??

      Hi Melanie!
      We have same thing.. My best friend and I want to travel together. It’s better to travel with a person who has same interest with you, and share same stuff too! We both enjoy our every travel. Especially when we see some out of this world people, we laugh to death with it!

    Hahahahaha… My Handsome Prince would do the same thing! I’m always asking or saying things that sound right in my head but come out sounding something like… What is the height of sea level? I blog best at 3 AM in my head when I’m too sleepy to actually get up. Then poof by the time I’m up and ready to inspire the masses all relevant thought has exited the building.

    I just wanted to let you know I listed you on my blog under my Versatile Blogger award post. You. Kill. Me. Every day. And, I thought, it’s really unfair to keep all this jocularity to myself, isn’t it? So, do with it what you like, but I hope you get even more peeps who find you as hilarious as I do. If not, screw ’em.
