It makes me laugh…

Yes, I say that a lot. A LOT. But it is true! Simple things make me laugh. Today, there was a great example:

In the homily at Mass, the priest was making the point that we should be more mature in our understanding of the Faith, and said, “We are all adults now.” There was a very short pause, after which Peter (2 years old) interjected with a distinct: “Uh-oh.”

As you can imagine, there was a moment of laughter. Little kids are so cute…and I think that God has a great sense of humor to allow a normally quiet toddler say something in Mass that makes everyone laugh.

Uh-oh…. 😀

Quirky meme (or just me)

I was recently tagged by Decorus Verum in meme titled, “Six Quirks About Me”. So here are the technical rules:

1. Link the person(s) who tagged you
2. Mention the rules on your blog
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours
4. Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

1. I enjoy washing dishes and organizing. Not continuously and constantly cleaning up after tons of other people, but just on a normal basis.

2. I scrunch my face when I get kissed on the cheek.

3. I would much rather pet a chicken than a dog.

4. My hair is nearly always put up during the day and taken down at night.

5. I get really excited when it rains … and even more particularly so when it is a thunderstorm.

6. I randomly break into song or laugh at all times of day.

And I am going to break the last two rules, because no one I know who blogs does it very often–and so they probably won’t get around to it for a month or two anyway. 😀
