A SHOCKING Experience

I went to my Mamas this morning, as usual, to have coffee, and then go on to get groceries. WHile we were drinking coffee and talking, she handed me this ball point pen. Before she did, she says "I want you to tell me why it does this, you'll see what I mean when you push the clicker on the top." (had one of those click buttons on top to press to get the point out)

"Okay" I say innocently.


I THREW it across the room and screamed "OH BULLSH*T!!!"

She looked at me like what in the world???

She said "Oh, come on, it just vibrates!"


She started laughing, doubling over in her chair, CACKLING her head off!

She picked up the pen, and tried it for herself


"Oh! It DOES shock you!"

"YEAH!!!!" I said

She busted out laughing again. She said it didn't do anything but vibrate last night. NOw Daddy has VERY dry hands, so I am assuming thats why it didn't shock him like it did me, I had lotion on mine. He had also taken it apart, trying to figure out how it did that.

They honestly thought it was a REAL pen! And something was wrong with it! LOL! She said she didn't know it was gonna shock me like that.

Anyway, Daddy found it in a rental car (He works for Budget) Guess it was somebody's April Fool Joke pen.

HA HA HA You see me laughing??? Okay, it was funny. I can't begin to describe what my face musta looked like when it shocked me, lol.

Ha1 The joke was on you huh!!
Reminds me of when I got my first cell phone with the vibrating ring tone. The first time it rang I was running a tractor without a cab, so there was a lot of noise. The first thing I knew I felt a tingling feeling in my chest. I thought: OH MY GOSH!!!! I'M HAVING A STROKE!!!! I then thought--I'LL JUST USE MY CELL PHONE TO CALL 911!!!! I grabbed the phone and thought OH MY GOSH!!!! THE TINGLING HAS SPREAD ALL THE WAY DOWN TO MY HAND!!!!
{Ok, I'll just fess up right now, the part about the phone vibrating and alarming me at first is true, the rest is pure fiction. When I read the story I thought it looked like it could use a little enhancement!}

sounds like mom's got a good sense of humor. my father in law came in and said somebody left more rabbits on the porch. i almost broke my neck get to the back door and he'd left an empty box with 2 stuffed animals in it. he thought it was real funny. i've got a dozen pregant bunnies and god help me when their all born.

Yeah, she would bust out laughing outta nowhere while we were shopping, I knew she was laughing at me, :).

You are gonna have to have a boys cage and a girls cage! LOL! Honestly, what are you gonna do with all those bunnies? Go into the bunny selling business? :)

I guess we're not as 'americanized' as I thought, 'cause here we don't 'celebrate' april fool's day thank you.

lol, we don't necessarily celebrate. SOme years I forget it's April Fools Day! I told SHelby to go to school and tell her teacher she got a horse, lol. I thought for sure the teacher would believe her, since we have so many animals already! Shelby said she didn't fall for it though, lol.

actually small rabbits go for $8-$10 each at the local flea market so i might sell a few. father in law says when they are 2-3 weeks old you can tell them apart. i can't but he can so he'll do the honors. he moved in with us about a week ago and i haven't asked but i'm sure he told hubby why. i know this will sound awful but mol never calls and that's ok with me.

I cannot help but wonder,
I know you said your father in law has moved in.
I am sure he is your hubby's dad;
is the mother in law his mom or step mom?

I know you mentioned how much he liked staying at your place before.
It just seems strange that she has not inquired about her husband,
unless she knew they were seperating.
I know it is not my business but since you have shared his plight with us, I thought I would ask.

she's his mom but as of sat .she still hasn't called this morning all he said is "thanks for letting me stay I just had enough.mol seems to have lots of anger issues has one of those fly off the handle tempers. always says she's sorry after but the the words hurts anyway.

"tell them apart?" See, there's 3 in that huddle over there, and 1 over by the waterer, and that pointy-looking one? well that's a chicken for kelly - you don't want that. And the one snacking? He's a rottweiller. Do you hafta gather them together to tell them apart? AWRIGHT BUNNIES - AT EASE! (boinkety boinkety boink) lol
