Jabba Hutt Has Gone Home and A RePost From The Past

My MIL, Dot (Granny Dot - better know around here as Jabba Hutt because she is 5 feet tall and close to 300 lbs) is on a plain heading for home.  Thank God and Continental she’s gone.

I do like (though love would not be a good word to use) her and in many ways enjoy her visits - though three weeks is a bit much.

Every time she comes down she has something new to add to her arsenal of strange and weirdness.  Like, she takes pills to help her with drearier, along with stool softeners.  This time she ask Judy if we have any honey.  We looked in the pantry and found a jar.  The next morning she ask Judy didn’t her lips look soft and most.  She rubs honey on them. (Think 300 lbs)  This might be an old remidy for chaplips that has been around, but I have never heard of it. It is so hard not to laugh at 90% of what she says.

Anyway, I was looking for a picture of Dot when I ran across this post from 2008 and got a chuckle out of it.  So I though I would re-post it.  He’s 15 now and lives on the phone with his girlfriends.

Maybe you will get a smile, too.

My grandson, J-Man (now Mater), is growing up; but not just growing, he's taking after his Paw Paw (me).  We were heading to the North Georgia Fair last Friday and he ask me, “Paw Paw (that’s me, ya know) you know what’s 40 feet long and smells like pee?”

“A safety rope in a water treatment plant.” I answer.


“Never mind! What’s 40 feet long and smells like pee?”

“A line-dance in the old folks home.”

It’s really hard to drive and keep the car on the road with tears in your eyes from laughing so hard.  I’m so proud of him.

I have to say, though, that knowing me, his mom and his dad, he didn’t stand a chance of ever being serious.  It’s in his jeans. 

And I think the horns on his head are very appropriate, too.

Well the girls he's talking to on the phone are very lucky. There's nothing sexier than a 15 year old cracking jokes instead of telling them how soft and pretty their hair extensions are.

that was a great joke. I'm going to have to retell it.

Biddie said...

Lol. Love the joke. J-Man is growing fast, that's for sure.

Barb said...

I hope your MIL doesn't know you call her Jabba. Did she see Star Wars? Anyway, very funny. :)

Riley Carson said...

Aw, so cute.

Wow, talking to girls? So the awkward stage isn't so awkward for him, eh?

Sandra, all his friends love his humor - as juvenile as it is. But we all had to start somewhere.

DD, you are welcome to it.

Biddie, he is growing too fast. I miss my little man.

Barb, Yes she knows. She just says 'Wait until you are 86 and see what you look like.' I bitch slap her and she is quiet until she comes too.

Riley, Just with his marching band friends. One is his BFF since elementary school. It's funny to watch him out and how he acts when the girls are eyeing him and trying to get his attention. So freaking shy.

Kid comes from good stock.

LOL. Reminds me of my kids. Sometimes I get so mad at their sassy jokes and then I remember where they got it...

I noticed you mentioned your grandson's "girlfriends." Another heartbreaker in the making :)

Ummm ... I'm seriously hoping your mother-in-law doesn't read your blog. She may put a hurting on you.
