treat

You know how sometimes you get a little treat in your life that reminds you all is well in the world, that God exists and things are good and people are awesome and life is beautiful??

I know, I know, you're wiping a tear while you think about your own "tender mercies." Today, cute baby and I had to wait for 100 years (LITERALLY...literally...) at the clinic for her to get a blood test since she is 2 weeks old (timeout to brag and say she is packing on the pounds, er, ounces thanks to mama's cream). She's napping, I'm wishing I was asleep, and I'm staring out the window when TO MY DELIGHT AND AMAZEMENT I see two 'heavy-set' or 'plump' or (insert politically correct term for chubby here) women in their 50s come out of the lab. And they are twins. And they both have dyed red-but-also-slightly-pink hair. And they are WEARING MATCHING CLOTHES, khaki pants and navy t-shirts.

And....

they are both in jazzies.


God bless America.

If you aren't going to use Cute Baby's name on the blog, you should at least come up with a cool nickname for her...

I'm thinking Gurrbonzo Bean.

Just Bean. And the term "mommas Cream" is hilarious and disturbing. good job.

gurrbonzo said...

Joel, thank you. And Kiersten, great suggestion! I hereby e-christen our child with the e-name of Bean.

This made me laugh so hard because of a hilarious commercial Ryan and I saw a few weeks ago on some obscure channel during a lame late night tv show. Surely you must have seen it too for this moment to have been a "tender mercy" in your life?

For all to enjoy:

It's the extended version, but the parts you'll find funny are in the beginning and at 1:40 or so.

Blessing indeed. I hope the twins made your wait worth it.. I also hope this was baby's first exposure to half century year old twins...

I am feeling Kathy-ish and need my baby fix again soon..

Allyson said...

Thank you for making me laugh today. That was gold.

At least they won't be terrorizing the community at more than two miles an hour.

Mommas cream,
Baby Bean.

That assonates.

What I'm trying to say is that is a very nice start to a poem that I think I may have just commissioned from you.
