Lots of laughs, lots of love

My family and I are quite different in nearly every regard.  From recreation choices, to food preferences, to climates in which we live, my family and I occupy nearly opposite ends of each spectrum.  However, when we are all together we do our very best to meet somewhere near the middle.  Yet our individual personalities do come through – often clearly and boldly, frequently with humorous and entertaining results.  And yes, such was the case today.

There were many moments throughout the day when I smiled at what one of my family members said, or chuckled lightly, or grinned and shook my head.  Amid the many amusing moments that occurred today, there was one instance in particular that caused my mom, my sister, and I to laugh out loud.

A commercial had just come on the television for a breakfast product:

I think we can all agree that this commercial is just silly.  Nonsensical, even.  Yet at the end of the 30-second segment, as the product logo came on the screen, my dad looked at the television and boldly declared, “Rainbows don’t eat, you dipstick!”  He then turned (a bit disgusted) and walked out of the room.

His comment was so completely unexpected, and so genuinely passionate, that it was ridiculously funny.  My mom, sister, and I all paused for half a second, looked at one another quizzically, mentally processed what had just happened, then started laughing.
It was silly, good-natured, and just fun.

And that’s how much of my day went.  Wacky comment after wacky comment, funny exchange after funny exchange.  Lots of humor, and levity, and giggles.

Yes, my family and I are quite different; but man, how I love ‘em.  They make me laugh, they remind me to live, and – despite our differences – they love me no matter what.

To me, it doesn’t get much better than that.

    I hadn’t seen those Jimmy Dean sausage ads – I ended up watching about half a dozen of them – so silly and fun!

    They are pretty silly – and rather fun, too. But I think this rainbow one is now my favorite. 🙂
