Top 10 Monday

My top 10 list for today has once again become a Number One list.

The number one moment from my life that makes me laugh every time I think about it:

When my brother dropped the "F" bomb while telling a joke to my mom, aunt, sister and me.

Here's the story. In the summer of 1999, my dad and uncle were talking on one side of the family room while my mom, aunt, brother, sister and I were at the table on the other side of the room. My brother started telling a joke that I was already very familiar with.

It's kind of a long joke but the punch line is,"Pass the f*!@ing potatoes."

I was thinking to myself, "He's not going to say the real word. He's going to say f word or he's going to spell it but he's not going to say the real word to my mom and aunt."

I was wrong. After he very loudly said,"Pass the f*!@ing potatoes", everyone (but me) got very quiet. Then my uncle who had heard my brother say the mother of all curse words but not the actual joke, started telling a story about a guy who used to cuss all the time. He eventually beat his bad habit by putting money in a jar every time he cussed.

This happened almost ten years ago but it makes me laugh until I cry every time I think about it.

Hopefully AJ is about to kiss Natalie on the cheek and not about to pass on the potato joke.
