Sunday Funnies #1

So, I've been posting some pretty heavy stuff lately, and thought it would be good to share some of the funnier tidbits of everyday life.  Having kids gives us some good material.

Let me set the stage.  We're all sitting in front of the fireplace asking M about her friends in preschool and she says something like,

"I have a friend in my class named Laundry." 

Surely, we assume, we have misheard her.  "What's her name?"


"Hmmm...I don't think that's her name, are you sure?"

"Yeah, I asked her if her name was 'Laundry' and she said, 'yes.'" (Can you imagine that conversation?)

So, I've heard of some unusual names, but "Laundry?"  I just don't see a parent wanting to name a child that.  But here's the best part...

"Actually, I think there are two "Laundry's" in my class."

Two Laundry's!

This is when the mental rolodex kicks into high gear (and believe me, it's had a lot of practice over the past 4 years).  Laundry.  What name sounds like "Laundry?"  Maundry?  Oh.....!  Then it comes to me--Audrey!  There are two Audreys... 

Love these little funny things she comes up with as she grows.  Thanks for the smiles, M! :)
