Our Family Holidays…

My family, as I have stated before, is a rare breed!  We have our own little holidays…some of which are celebrated several times a year!  We also make up our own words too.

  • National Dad Cooking Day – This is the day that my Daddy decides he is Betty Crocker.  The only problem is…his “dinners” usually consists of throwing any and all ingredients into one big pot!  These are the days we would rather go hungry!  LOL  Sorry Daddy!  I guess I should add in that the whole family runs when I attempt to make biscuits!  Sometimes they use them as rocks!  I’m serious…you can throw my biscuits against a wall and not a crumb will fall off!
  • Auburn vs. Georgia Day – This is the day when we all gather together to watch this specific college football game.  The entire family, except my Mom, Daddy, me, my brother and a couple more, roots for Georgia.  It is us 6 or 7 against the whole family!  We all become instant football coaches…screaming at the t.v. and yelling at the refs!  Pom-poms are even involved folks!
  • National Dance Till You Drop Day – My Mom loves to dance.  She taught me and my brother at an early age all the “oldie” dances!  LOL  We crank up music and pretty much dance and giggle all day long.  Yes, we are crazy…but we are a happy bunch!
  • Funny Argument Day – This one is mainly celebrated by my Mom and brother and happens several times a year.  My brother will start an argument with my Mom about everything!  They will even argue about chip bags…weight vs. volume.  WTH!  Haha
  • Opposite Day –   This is the day that my Daddy picks and chooses what is “opposite”.  He does this several times a month…obviously this is a popular one!  For example…Daddy will say, during his National Cooking Day, “The cook has to clean up the kitchen.”  Now, after dinner he announces that it is opposite day!  The next night when my Mom is cooking, she will remind my Daddy that the cook didn’t have to clean up the night before…here again, he announces “Opposite Day!”
  • National Mom Bad Hair Day – These are the days, yes I meant the plural form of day!, that my Mom does not touch a brush or comb.  She ends up looking like she stuck her finger in a light socket.  This is a permanent holiday now due to the fact that she has not touched a brush in about a year…Her hair is really short so she does that “spiky do thingy”.
  • Embarrass Mom Day – This is a frequent one too!  My brother and I pretend to have mental issues and speak impaired.  We also walk really funny…kinda like we got “skid-mark” issues!  We yell in stores that she needs to tie our shoes or help with our zipper cause we have explosive diarrhea!  Then we run around her holding our butts and yelling that we had a “woopsy”!
  • Embarrass The Kids Day – Mom reverses the role above and embarrasses the shit out of us!  She will just start laughing out loud…REALLY LOUD…and has even sat down in the middle of a store and continued laughing.  I swear, she looks like she needs a straight jacket and padded room on these days…LOL
  • National Pick On Family Member Day – Practical jokes rule on these days!  Greasing door handles, sardines in the vents, jello dumped in the back of their toilet…the list goes on and on.
  • Wambulance Day – My brother invented this one!  He will pick on someone, usually ME,  about anything and everything.  When I say something about it…to defend myself!…he does this…”Awww, call the wambulance.  Waa Waa Wambulance!”  So friggin’ annoying!


Here are some of our “made up” words…

  • duckies = money
  • mokey = remote control
  • drinky poo = alcoholic beverage
  • itchy = an itch  haha  “I have an itchy on my back.”
  • coo coo = popsicle

I have no idea why we use ’em and I’m pretty sure there are tons more…just can’t think of ’em right now.


Awesome…just awesome!


LMAO…Now, this is awesome right here!  Perfect for my rock-n-roll shower shows!

I think everyone needs one of these.


The Tom Cruise sock slide…

Ok, just had to share my most recent tale of embarrassment!  A few weeks back I get into my husband’s truck and scroll down to “shuffle” on the iPod.  Just before I hit the button, I say out loud, “Make this a good one!  Give me a song that will make my day!”  Well….with the volume up and a smile on my face the song “Fat Bottom Girls” by Queen begins!  What the hell???  LOL  Needless to say the smile instantly disappears and I’m just staring at the iPod like it sprouted wings.  Soon I can’t help but laugh and decide its just gonna be one of those days.  Now I told you that story to tell you what happened to me last night.  Ha!

I get into the shower and wash my hair.  Conditioner is in my hair and I’m thinking, “I need some music!”  Can you guess what damn song begins blaring at me???  Yep, good ol’ Fat Bottom Girls!  Seriously?  I mean, I know my butt is huge but I don’t need the constant reminder!  Haha  Instantly I laugh out loud and decide it’s time to sing and dance!  Getting the conditioner out of my hair I decide I’m gonna put on a rock show!  I am singing to the top of my lungs and attempt that “Tom Cruise sock slide” from the movie Risky Business….you know the one!  If you need your memory jogged a lil you can YouTube it!   Yes, I tried this in the shower…..right after washing CONDITIONER out of my hair.  Holy crap ya’ll!  Bottom of the tub is slick with all that conditioner.  I slid all right…straight into the wall and then over the side.  Legs and arms going everywhere, I’m laughing, face is kinda lodged into the shower curtain….damn.  It was like that feeling you get when you miss a step on a set of stairs!  I thought my life had ended!  I’m half in and half out of the shower and laughing so hard I can’t breathe.  It was pitiful!

Anyway, I have recuperated and am alive and well.  Hope ya’ll got a good giggle out of my lovely evening!
