True Confessions

Hey! Maybe I should try this sometimes when I don't know the answer!

True confession Story time: When my son was born, my wife and I were walking around the hospital floor with me pushing my son in one of those hospital bassinets a few days later, since she had had a cesarean. We saw the Principal of the school were I had worked a few years earlier, who was with her daughter who had also just had a baby. We went up to her and I said hi, she said "hi" and she said "this is my daughter, etc" and then she said "what is it?" I thought she meant what did you have-a boy or a girl? She really meant-"what was your name?" I said proudly, "baby boy." She looked at me kinda weird and said, "Uhmm, no, I mean, what was your name?" My wife was so sore from the C-section that laughing was really hard for her, but she could barely keep from just bursting out loud! I got teased about this for a while! Now, we sometimes think about that day when I called myself "baby boy"!! It's good for some chuckles!
I will post a "name confusion" story that happened to me a while back for the next post. (I don't know, guess I feel like getting these off my chest!)

I always liked Rodney Dangerfield. What a classic comedian he was! Maybe the king of the one-liner.

I always liked this guy too: Richard Belzer on Reagan and Salman Rushdie:

Update: I just saw this in my list of updated blogmates posts! Another typically hilarious post from Jon Swift, just in time for the post Thanksgiving snacking and regorging!

Hey Dcap! Yeah I love that kind of "classic" humor once in a while! He just had it all-the face the delivery, everything!

Yep-baby boy! That's kinda embarassing but kinda funny too!
