A stomach virus (Scarlet), a cold so bad he missed three days of school (Des), and a partridge in a pear tree (Athena). Actually, it was three porcupine quills that I removed from her face, but I liked partridge in a pear tree better.
So after another exhausting week, I’m swapping laughs and giggles questions with my trusty co-host, Echo. If you offend easily, you may want to skip it. There’s talk of FLATULENCE and more! I can’t believe how much! Thanks for the laughs, Echo!
#AskAwayFriday was created by the amazing Penny from Real Housewife of Caroline County and Amber from Bold Fit Mom, as a way to connect with other bloggers with a great Q & A session of 10 questions and 10 answers, between two bloggers! This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know others while allowing others to get to know you and of course there is also the added bonus of making great friends along the way which is one of the best parts of this online world! Ask me if you want to swap!

Be sure to check out Echo’s hilarious answers to my questions HERE. Here are my answers to her questions:
1. What is your all time favorite joke?
Hmm.. that is definitely a thing that makes me go Hmmm… I’m certainly a fan of the Doctor Who knock knock joke.
(make TARDIS or Sonic Screwdriver noise or something)
2. Care to share your favorite funny musical parody?
I think it would have to be Weird Al’s “Amish Paradise.” To be fair, it’s probably because I love the original song. And also, this one time at Hebrew School, my group wrote a rap called “Rabbi’s Paradise.” I wish I still had the lyrics.
3. What is one meme that always makes you laugh?
Oh, this is hard! I’ll go simple. I do like the condescending Wonka ones, and a million others too:
4. What is the funniest thing your kids have said?
Well that’s a whole post! To be recent, I was changing Des’ diaper yesterday and he yelled out, “I don’t like my balls touched!” You and me both, kid. And then he was whining for water so I said, “Des, say it nicely.” And he said, “It nicely.”
And I have this story: Sometimes the influence comes from older kids – cousins, friends and neighbors. One day, when she was about two-years-old, I was reading her from Dr. Seuss: “Big A, little a, what beings with A?” Scarlet was very quiet for a second and then said, “ANUS!!” Cue stifled hysterical laughter and stunned disbelief. I mean..she was…correct, wasn’t she?
5. What is your favorite funny movie?
I definitely remember laughing until I cried at some Mel Brooks’ films. I think the major one was History of the World: Part 1. I absolutely adore The Wedding Singer. I find myself quoting it almost daily. It’s a favorite in general!
6. Care to share a memory that may not have been funny at the time, but is funny now?
Cassidy helped me with this one, and it’s my story in The Mother of All Meltdowns. I was potty-training Scarlet and I gave her my wedding ring to play with while she sat on the toilet. Why? I don’t know. She wound up using the kid potty successfully so I forgot about the ring when I was so excited about what she did. I flushed it down the big toilet and when I realized, hours later, that I couldn’t find my wedding ring, I just figured that she had dropped it in the potty. And that I had flushed it down. Goodbye, wedding ring. Luckily that’s NOT what happened. She had rolled it under a couch and we found it days later.
7. We both know that farts are funny. What is your favorite fart joke?
Is this a joke? “Beans beans, they’re good for your heart, the more you eat, the more you….FART!”
8. To go with #7: What is your favorite fart story?
I mean.. all fart stories are my favorite fart stories. One of my favorites is when my mom and uncle were kids at summer camp. My uncle knew how to do this weird thing where he would make himself burp and build up these little burps, and then it would turn into one really, really long burp. A true skill, right? So one day he did it, but the long burp never came. Relief never came! So he was lying in bed and suddenly he groaned and said, “Oh no! I don’t feel good!” And then out came the longest fart anyone had ever heard. The stuff of legends! It’s somewhat gross, but oh so true to my uncle.
I suppose you want to hear a fart story about me, right? Well you know I’m one of five kids. One day we had company over and there were probably about 15 of us. Suddenly my stomach hurt, and even though we had company over I was just a kid so I probably didn’t care about embarrassment. So I let one go and then I really did get embarrassed for a second and thought, “Did I really do that??” It was so loud and there was a stunned silence in the room. Suddenly my sister yelled, “CHELSEA!” (our dog’s name) Wow, they really thought it was the dog. I was off the hook! I laughed so hard I fell off the couch.
9. Who makes you laugh more than any other person?
It’s hard to say. There’s such a specific humor that gets me. I think it’s Josie from Yum Yucky. She’s not only funny – she’s sweet. She gave Scarlet a wonderful shoutout in this video:
10. They say laughter is contagious, how are you going to spread laughter today?
Well the day is young. I think I will lay off the fart jokes today, but I accidentally let a cat into our local library this morning, so I definitely made a lot of kids laugh and smile with joy. I even snapped a photo!
