Funny People

Funny things happen all the time at my/mom's house and while I don't consider myself the funniest person in my family, apparently I provide entertainment in my sleep.

Don't let your imagination run wild with that.

But anyway, last night was impromptu-sleep-over night at my house, Elsie in bed with me and Micah on the mattress on the floor next to my bed. Elsie came to bed later then I did and while I remember her crawling in next to me, I also remember struggling for about 2 hours before I could go to sleep. My leeggggssss.....

I woke up this morning and Elsie was gone. I realized this while laying diagonally across my queen-size bed. I figured my kicking and punching had driven her elsewhere.

Only later did I find out that she had woken up around 2 with her heart racing and she had shaken me repeatedly while nearly yelling, "Holly, wake up! My heart!"

My concerned response?

A solid sleep-filled "Yup!"

(I have no recollection of my sleepy reply)

Last night Mom, Elsie and I were watching a Lifetime movie, "Where The Heart Is," and while I was laying on the couch watching the repeated advertisement for the "Pregnany Pact", I had an ephiphony-like revelation.

"Mom!!!!" I yelled and sat up, interrupting her in the middle of something she was saying. I can't even remember what it was now.

"I know why you're so fertile!!!!"

She kinda looked at me, waiting for my insight.

"Because your name is in PREGNANCY!!!!!!"

Honestly, I can't remember the last time we laughed so hard - till tears, really.

"I never even thought of that before," she laughed.

That explains everything.

And while this post was titled "funny people" and both stories happened to involve me, I in no way claim to be the funniest member of my family or even in the top five of the funniest people in my family. It's really just ironic, that's all.

"Where the Heart Is" is not a Lifetime movie. :) It's better than a Lifetime movie. And the book is even better.
