Nintendo DSi free giveaway.

This giveaway is now closed.  Thanks for playing!

Friends, the very electronic piece of gadgetry that is all the rage in the elementary school age bracket right now {aka, my 10-year-old won’t leave me alone about buying one}, the Nintendo DSi?  Well.  I have one to give away.  It’s normally $169.99 but right now it’s on sale for $149.  Dude.  The holidays are around the corner.

Oh, did I mention it comes with two games?  I didn’t?  Well, it does.

nintendo dsi

So, I’m giving away a Nintendo DSi + 2 games = $210. Score!

Here’s what I want you to do: leave me a comment.  Not a comment about how badly you need one, how you’re totally dying to give one to your kid for x,y,z holiday.  No.  Leave me a comment that will make me laugh a little.  A quick funny anecdote.  Your favorite saying.  Just something silly that will make my morning complete.  Seriously.

–If you want to get really crazy head over to Today’s Mama.  They’re giving away a whole bundle of loot to one family:  5 DSi’s + 10 games.  That takes family night to a whole new level.

Hello there! I’m Allison Czarnecki, founder + editor of Petit Elefant, a blog all about style on a budget for every part of your life: style / home / travel / family. I do a lot of how-to beauty + style tutorials, travel posts, easy recipes, home remodel projects, and cool DIY crafts you totally want to try. I’m super happily married (to a hot Polish immigrant) and am the mother of two kids, a daughter and son, all of whom are featured here on the regular. We live in the country but we’re a little bit rock + roll. Welcome!


  1. Linda @ My Trendy Tykes :

    Oh gosh, something funny? Hmm….how about something awkward (possibly funny for YOU) Yesterday I heard UPS pull up and of course I am sitting here in my pj’s but as soon as I hear the truck I start running around looking for my bra. I didn’t find it in time and had to open the door anyway (ARMS FOLDED ACROSS MY CHEST OF COURSE). My kid runs in here to save the day…..she announces WHILE HOLDING THE BRA in hand (I found your bra momma!) —-in front of the guy DOH!

  2. Amanda :

    Funny? Hmm… I’ve recently started taking my mini schnauzer to the dog park everyday. He starts muttering to himself when he recognizes we’re driving the right way, and by the time we’re passing the park to get to the parking lot, he’s full on yodeling out the window, desperate to play with his friends. Needless to say, we’re gaining a reputation ;p

  3. Heidi Eskelson :

    O.k, this story is hilarious to me, but hey, that’s probably because it involves my five year old boy who is normally a serious but adorable little guy.
    Two weeks ago my Son and I anxiously attend our first meeting with his new Kindergarten teacher. Me being probably more excited and nervous than him since it’s my first experience sending a child to Kindergarten.
    Mrs. Hadlock kindly, but mostly serious and business like. sends me to a desk in the back of the room to begin filling out some paperwork while she and my son begin some testing.
    I couldn’t help but stare and strain to evesdrop on their little conversation. I couldn’t hear a lot but i did hear this….., “Braden now we are going to do some math problems.” (Oh crap! MATH?? Good luck son!, I thought.) She continued, “If there are two trees in the back of the house and two trees in front of the house, how many trees are there?” (I lean in trying to stretch my hearing with my fingers crossed.) Braden looks up at the ceiling, swinging his legs off the edge of the chair, and looks back at Mrs. Hadlock and says, “Three?” (On NO!! My heart drops a beat.) A big smile spreads across his face as he looks at her again and says, “Nooo, I’m just kidding, four.” AAAAAAhhhh HHHaaaaaa! It killed me!
    Mrs. Hadlock didn’t quite feel the same as I did. She ignored the whole
    thing and moved on.

  4. Lu :

    Funny. Words can not describe how this YouTube video will make you laugh. It is what I go to whenever I need my spirits instantly lifted. It is a song by a comedian called Is That Your Breath of Did You Just Fart.

  5. Heather :

    Knock knock.
    Who’s there,
    Interrupting Cow.
    Interrupting Co MOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    Ok that was silly :)

  6. Cara :

    Funny– hmm……. My son has already made his Christmas wish list!! and this DSI is on it!

  7. Tonya Lynn :

    Hmm – what’s funny?

    I tripped and took a pretty good digger yesterday while walking from the parking lot to class. Which wasn’t so bad because nobody was around. But the second time was as I was leaving one of the lecture halls and I fell down about 20 stairs in front of 200 people. I couldn’t decide if I should cry or laugh so I did both. I haven’t been that embarrassed in a long time – Today thinking about it makes me laugh.

    Something funny? Well going off of barely any sleep I think everything is funny right now. How about ironic? I finished painting the upper half of my walls this morning at 6:30 am (yep, NO SLEEP). I finally fall into bed at 7 and at 7:10 the guy coming to drill the doorknob holes in all the new doors arrives. Yup, 10 blessed mins of sleep before I had to get up, put on a bra and answer questions to a guy DRILLING at 7:10 in the morning. Now I have no sleep and a headache! Lucky me the carpet stretcher arrived as soon as the door guy left so it looks like I won’t get any rest until tonight.

  10. Melissa :

    Funny and true story:
    We (Chris, me, Chris’s mom & Penelope) were headed to a family friend’s house about 15 minutes away. We were feeling a little proud of ourselves because we know all the fastest roads & were clearly going to beat my sister-in-law there.

    Anyway, Chris & I were playfully arguing about which street was fastest & Chris decided to turn on to a slow street rather than wait for the light & stay on the faster one. I was so annoyed that he wouldn’t listen, but still, it was the most fun we’ve ever had fighting. I couldn’t help but smile.

    My mother-in-law was also chuckling to herself during our entire discourse, but Penelope didn’t think it too funny. From the back seat I heard, “DAMMIT!” & see Penelope’s toy fly to the front of the car. I’m pretty sure she was fed up with our argument. I couldn’t help but laugh to hear such a little voice so emphatically swear. OMG. She gets that from her mother.

    P.S. Great giveaway, Allison! Just so you know, my parents banned anything nintendo/gamerly when we were growing up. I’ve suffered tremendously as my hand-eye coordination SUCKS.

  11. Shaina :

    My daughter saved up all her money to buy a DS a few years ago, $140 from a 7-year-old is quite the feat. Then it went missing, right before Christmas last year (she was 9 by then) and she, of course, received 3 games for Christmas. Feeling sorry for her because I know how frustrating it can be when younger siblings seemingly destroy everything you own, we bought her a new one. A blue one.

    And then, no sooner did it arrive in the mail when we found the old one. Tucked away under the backseat, and my son who placed it there? Well, he kind of took over possession of it seeing as we now had two.

    But because God has a way of righting things that seem out of whack, his DS died soon after due to a bad connection, and now it doesn’t hold a charge for anything. With no way to fix it, my son has been DS-less and melancholy for the last six months, his dreams of winning Super Mario fading in the distance. While I love that we no longer have to stare at every. single. game. for DS when we’re at Costco, this would make a fantastic Christmas present for the adorable little punk whom I love so dearly.

    I read the first comment and thought of my own funny. My little boy used to point to the bras at Target and yell, “BOOBIES!”

  18. Emily :

    How about my daughter leaving me a handwritten note last night asking a body-related question (top secret, don’t tell Dad) in which she referred to her privates as “the downtown area”? I am still laughing about it today!

  19. Lindsay | Likely Design :

    Something funny…how about this – I’ve had this comment box open for 2 hours trying to think of something funny to put here! :)

    The funniest thing in my world right now is my 2 year old babbling to herself after we’ve put her to bed about the potty and having to poop, thinking that I will come get her! She went on like that for 2 nights in a row, for at least half an hour. In the dark. Not buying it, little one!!

    Barman says: “No.”

    Duck says: “Got any bread?”

    Barman says: “No.”

    Duck says: “Got any bread?”

    Barman says: “No, we have no bread.”

    Duck says: “Got any bread?”

    Barman says: “No, are you deaf?! We haven’t got any bread, and if you ask me again and I’ll nail your dang beak to the bar you irritating dang duck!”

    Duck says: “Got any nails?”

    Barman says: “No”

    Duck says: “Got any bread?

  23. Lacretia :

    My mom reminded me of a funny self-story yesterday. I’ve been studying for the GMAT recently, and have been helping my boyfriend do the same. He’s a lot better at math, and I’m a lot better at writing.

    My mom said that I’ve always been “good” at helping people write. When I was 5 years old, I was showing my (younger) cousins how I could write my name and their names too. When they praised me for my efforts “oh that’s soo cool!” I humbly responded, “Don’t worry, you’ll be able to write like me…SOMEDAY.” I mean, who SAYS that at 5 years old? Me, apparently.

  27. brenna :

    when I was a child I asked if we could please make a special “bread” during our dinner as I held my glass to the center of the table. Of course we all laughed (okay, maybe not me) when it was realized I was actually requesting a “toast” to be made… ;) Sometimes these things are just funnier when you’re there, I suppose. :)

    I am already a facebook fan… does that count?

  28. Suzanne :

    I was going to my sister’s house last Friday night with the 3 youngest kids (10 months, 3 years, and 5 years). We left around 5:30pm to go – which means that they might ALL fall asleep – which I didn’t want. I decided to play ‘I Spy’ with the boys (3 and 5 year olds).
    I said, ‘I spy with D’s (3 year old) little eye something yellow.’

    He looks very funny at me and says, ‘Mom, my eyes are blue!’

    Made me laugh!!

    Have a great day!

  29. erica :

    i have 3 small children – the baby is anna – EVERYONE and i do mean everyone calls her anna banana.
    while sitting with my middle son the other day – i was asking him his full name, dad’s middle name, big sister’s middle, etc….he didn’t remember any of our middle names. however!
    we get to asking him his baby sister’s middle name and without skipping a beat – he screams proudly – “ANNA BANANA!” it was a good belly laugh for all of us (although, he didn’t quite understand why we were all laughing).

    ((cue drum beat ))

    For real though…today I went boot shopping. As I agonized over which pairs would be the best investments, I swear… I stopped and thought, “What would Alison buy?”

  36. Donna :

    I went new car shopping on the snowiest day of the year. I happened into the local Ford dealership and wanted to look at Fusions. Since they were all under a foot of snow the salesman brought me into the showroom to show me the hybrid, even though he knew I didn’t want a hybrid. They were pretty much the same to look at. I put my 12yo in the back seat to see how he felt about the leg room. Soon he got really excited. “Mom! There’s an outlet back here!” The salesman laughed and told him only the hybrids have the outlet. “Mom, I think you should get a hybrid, that way when we forget to charge our DSi’s we don’t have to worry about it, we can bring the charger and plug them into the car!”

  38. Hilary :

    I think it’s funny what your son confessed about his parents when I taught his primary class. Don’t worry, I won’t embarrass you by telling everyone here on the internet. I guess it’s payback for all the things my son said about us when you taught his class.

  39. Peggi :

    My favorite saying is “Do you love me because I’m beautiful, or am I beautiful because you love me?” It makes you stop and think, doesn’t it? :)

  40. colett :

    yesterday my son (13) asked if there was a difference between a condom and a condo. I am feeling pretty good about that.

  41. Laurel :

    Yesterday, my 5 year old Wii-obsessed boy, informed me that he liked a mixture of Country-Rock music. “Do you know an example of that type of a song?” he asks. “It’s world 8 on Super Mario Brothers.” Will this silly mommy ever know that all answers must be related to Mario Brothers!?

  42. the emily :

    So this one time in college I went to a dance at UVSC. I was a freshman at BYU and thought I was totally hot stuff. A circle formed where the boys were break dancing, and somehow my friend and I were right up front. The breaker starts spinning on his back with his feet up in the air, when suddenly, the circle tightens, and I get kicked….directly in the crotch. Every boy in the room gave an audible “OHHHH!” and all the girls smirked at me like “hey hot stuff, how does it feel to get kicked in the crotch in front of all these boys?” to this day, my most embarrassing moment. i cannot help but die laughing every time i think about it.

  43. Sara M :

    What do cows play at birthday parties?

    Mooooo-sical chairs. :)

  44. Kimm :

    My 2 year old & 5 year old were playing in the basement a week ago. I hear the youngest come stomping up the stairs. She stomps into the livingroom turns around to face her older sister and with a very stern and serious voice says, “NOT COOL EMMA, NOT COOL!” She continued muttering not cool under her breath for the next couple minutes.
    I have no idea what her older sister did to upset her, I was too busy trying not to spit out my Dr. Pepper.

    Remember Big Guy in Little Shirt from Tommy Boy – well this is what I pictured yesterday when my husband sent me a text from his business trip that the black shirt died! Come to find out he was Big Guy in little shirt and when he got into the car it split down the back! Haha! Guess, he should check them before he packs for a business trip let alone a new position – Oh well probably funnier to me just picture it!

  48. mskaz :

    Last week my car horn started blaring all by itself, completely possessed. I was in a parking lot and got all sorts of looks and fingers (guess which ones?). This went on for about 10 minutes and stopped. I started to drive away and it started up again. Very loooong story short. A few hours later and a trip to the car dealership (the car is 3 weeks old), my nerves were completely shot. I’ll tell you, I was so traumatized and scared to drive my car! I have never had so many people give me the finger in my life. It was a nightmare. But now I can laugh about it!

  49. Lori Anderson :

    My husband and I are expecting our first child together. He has two sons from his first marriage…10 and 13. The 13 yr. old came to me the other day and expressed his concern about him or his brother having to share a bedroom with the new baby. I asked him what his solution would be. He suggested we set the nursery up in a corner in the kitchen! My response was…how about we set you up in the kitchen and give the baby your room!

  50. Amy :

    I had this exact conversation with my husband the other night… We don’t get out much, and with kids, well, perhaps we’re not as cool and with the times as we thought we were…

    “No sweetie, I swear that DJ Lance Rock from Yo Gabba Gabba is not WIll.I.Am in disguise: :D

  51. Emily :

    This one always gets me through the day…
    My husband has a friend who wrote an email to his friends about what kind of wrestler he would be, if he were to be a wrestler. He accidently sent it to his entire workplace.

  52. evonne :

    funny, I’m not funny, but my kid is.

    We were doing her “spotlight” for Kindergarten. I asked her what she wanted to be when she grows up, and can you guess to my horror what she said?? “Mom I want to work at Wal Mart in the toy department.

    Um, and NO I would not let her put it on the “spotlight poster”. We picked something that wouldn’t embarass her in 5 years.

  53. evonne :

    I am a subsciber. Do I have to say something funny on this too? I am starting to feel pressure!

  54. evonne :

    I am now a “fan” of your facebook fan page…I would have already been a fan, but I didn’t know that was even there. Good to know.

  55. jakell :

    ok.. have to be here.. but right now my 6 year old is crying she can’t find her bracelet and my 7 year old yells..

    ” Hadi, you have to just THINK THINK THINK like pooh bear..pooh bear the pig!”

    LOL I am laughing at the moment anyway. One of those you just had to be there moments. Just discussing with my hubby something funny my 5 year old has said lately.. there is always something great to laugh about coming from her when this all happened… guess he wanted a laugh too.

    Since my mind is drawing a blank I guess it will have to do!
    Hope its enough :)

    …… guess I am not THINK THINK THINKing like pooh bear right now LOL

    *** she calls Family Home Evening
    “Hamily Foam Evening” No matter how many times we have corrected her.
    *** listening to the kids as they are painting..
    C:”Mom, Hadi made a handprint!!!!”..
    me: “its ok, just don’t make a mess!”
    C: “You know, thats going to be my signature when I become an artist!” So cute, I love my kids!

  58. Andrea Fellman :

    When my husband (boyfriend at the time) and I were backpacking through Europe and sleeping our way through Hostels. We were sharing a very small bed and in a room full of other young backpackers and I peed the bed! I tapped him on the shoulder and whispered “Harris, I peed the bed” he grumbled a little and said “You did WHAT? and i whispered again I peed the bed! It was was so funny but horrible at the same time!! He still likes to tell that story whenever he can.

    My husband and I are in the midst of watching the Star Gate SG1 series from the beginning. At one point the Gou’ald showed a man with an “alien” coming out of his tummy. All of a sudden our 4 year old turned to us eyes wide open and asked, “Is that their gallbladder?”

    Poor thing…Mommy (me) had her gallbladder out earlier this summer. Guess it was a little traumatic for him!

  62. SarahJ :

    OK- so I love reading your blog…

    My funny/embarassing story: On a trip to India, our group of women headed straight to the street market the first morning in Calcutta, and asked for some Indian clothing, quoting the name in Bengali that a man on the plane had told us to say… We began our work at various homes and orphanages and then ended our week at a local church, where we found out that for the last week, we had been a group of American women parading around town in men’s formal suits…

    Nice… I fully recommend it if you’re looking for a way to feel as awkward as possible in a foreign country… Not so good, when your goal is to be as assimilated into the local culture as possible…

  63. Stacey :

    Funny, huh? I went to the state fair tonight. I forgot I was in Utah. I don’t normally see people like that around. I know that’s not super funny, but I just can’t believe the people that were there! Boggles my mind.

    My 4 year old said that he was the smartest in our family (has 2 older sibs). I asked him why he thought that and he said, “Because I know everything.” That is when his 10 year old brother interjected into the conversation and said, “Oh yeah, then what is 2 X 2?” That is when my four year old said, “Four!” All our mouths dropped open and we all started to laugh! My four year old keeps me young!

  67. Megan Tippetts :

    We were leaving the A&W drive thru when my 4 yr old son told me that he was going to grow a beard now…because he had finished drinking his “root beard”! It made me laugh!

  68. Burningmoon :

    Hmm A funny comment?

    It may only be funny to me but my Almost two year old is starting to develop her ‘Miss. Attitude Stage’ Today she got scolded for getting into the dish washer while I was trying to put dishes away,Her retaliation was to walk to her room turn around stick her tongue out then shut her bedroom door so I couldn’t see her.She came out two minutes later perfectly fine it was almost as if she was giving her self ‘Cool down time’ after doing something bad.

  69. Mary Preston :

    I work at a Pre-school. My day begins at 11am. Everyday when I walk in just before 11, one little girl says indignantly: “Mary you’re late.” It makes me laugh every single time.

  71. Karen :

    Recently we switched from toddler training toothpaste for our 2 and 4 year olds to regular “kid” toothpaste. You should have seen our kids trying to spit. I had no idea I would have to teach them how to spit! They alternated between swallowing the toothpaste and just leaving their mouth open to let it dribble out. Ah, adventures in parenting – it really should come with a handbook!

    Conversation between my 3 year old son and I on the way home from preschool….

    ‘Momma, did you know we have ‘taste bugs’ all over our tongue?’
    ‘We do? That’s pretty neat, Liam! Do you know what they help us do?’
    ‘Well, Ms. Jennie calls them ‘taste buds’ but I like to call them ‘taste bugs.’

    It doesn’t sound as funny when you don’t have the kiddo, in all seriousness, telling you this from the back seat. It was too funny! ;)

  85. Andie :

    This may only be funny to be since I’m his Mother, but this is a conversation between me and my six year old.

    Me: “Hey Landon, let’s fold and put away laundry together!” (he used to love doing this!)
    Landon: (as he gives me the look) “Mom, I know what you’re trying to do. You’re trying to make me responsible AND you’re trying to keep me from playing PlayStation. You’re one sneaky Mama, but I think I’ll pass.”
    Me: “You sure?”
    Landon: “Yep, ya know, because doing laundry is LOADS of fun! Get it? Loads?” (and then he walked off and never came near the laundry room again)

    It goes to show you that they grow up fast and find other interests. What kid wouldn’t want to do laundry?! Gah! Kidding.

    Good luck to everyone!

    My little 3 year old still sleeps with us and he and I like to watch a little TV in bed before falling asleep. When I turn the TV off he gets upset and rolls around the bed crying “It’s too dark, I can’t see! I hate you!” Recently I discoverd I need to watch what I use as an excuse to get the kids to do what I want because he changed his ranting to “It’s too dark! I can’t see! I hate you! I’m PREGNANT!” lol
    I almost caved and let him watch more TV, since pregnancy is hard. haha

    Hubby while looking at our son’s “Where’s Waldo” game last night:

    “You know why it’s so hard to find Waldo in these things? It’s because he’s a lazy POS.”

    About 10 seconds later:

    “Yep. There he is. Not doing anything.”

    In a class I had yesterday, my teacher is from China so she has a bit of a strong accent…she was telling us how she once mistook someone’s hand gesture for “I’ll Call You” to mean “Opium or drugs”. They are both similar except the latter is only known in China. She was confused for a moment on where she was and thought the student was saying they were off to do drugs!

    Some of the best things in a child’s life end in “o”: Cheerio, Frito, Cheeto, Dorito, Tostito, Spaghettio, Jello, Ho Ho, LEGO, Daddyo, and, yes, Oreo.

  95. Peter :

    We were recording our daughter yesterday for an educational video for our troop. We got several outtakes of her doing the stress-relief “exercise” from High School Musical. She turned around, lifted her arms over her head, did the whole lip bubble thing w/ arm motions several times, then turned around ready to go except for a giggling fit. It was pretty funny to us. We also told her that she needed more cousins on my side of the family to even the balance. She later told her grandmother that she needed more cousins and explained that there were several people in the Bible who had babies when they were older and they just needed faith.

    My oldest daughter while attending R Kids Daycare in Provo at the age of 4 went on a field trip to the local library with her class. The librarian was showing them the different sections in the library and came to the Spanish section. The librarian asked the kids “do any of you speak spanish” and a little girl said “yes, Hola, como es ta?” when my daughter says “That’s not Spanish, I live in Spanish Fork”… (guess I should let her watch Dora more often – hee hee).

    I took my 6 year old to Walmart recently and he wanted to buy some silly bands. I tried to talk him out of buying them (he was spending his own money). His response to me: “Mama, why can’t I waste my OWN money if I want to!!”

He had a very busy 2 days and really appreciates his wife. And I got 2 blissful, sleep filled nights in a hotel. :))

    One day my 8 year old son and I were at Walgreens getting some photos printed for a school project. While we were using the photo printing machine, my son was singing the entrance song of one of his favorite WWE wrestlers. The sales associate laughed and said he was very good at singing. We paid for our photos and when we were done and about to leave, my son stopped singing, made the peace sign with his fingers, and said “Peace! I’m outta here!” The sales associate laughed again and said “See ya little man. You made my day.”

  107. Nad :

    When my son was 2 and still learning the days of the week, he was convinced I had it all wrong and that today was “Hamburger Day”, not Saturday. When I asked him why he thought so, he said: “well, yesterday was FRY day, wasn’t it?”

  119. Shimona :

    We’re Jewish and my husband wears a kippah (yarmulke)…my 3-year-old daughter found one on the sofa and put it on her knees and said, “Look, my knees are Jewish!”
    My 6-year-old made a list (which she is genetically predisposed to doing) for herself when she first started going to camp this summer, and I quote in its entirety (minus the cute inventive spellings):
    “1) Make this list
    2) Think of something to write in this list
    3) Get on bus
    4) Get off bus
    5) Go to swimming
    6) Have snack
    6) Go to swimming
    8) Get back on bus
    9) Get off bus
    10) Finish writing this list
    Seven is a bad number”
    Yes, did you see she put two 6’s so as not to put 7, the “bad number” in her list? That definitely is the cherry on this 6-year-old sundae of unintentional hilarity…

    Last week we were getting ready to leave and drive an hour to go see grandma and grandpa for the day. After getting the bags ready I asked my two year old if she was ready to go, she said “Yeah Dad lets roll!” and pointed to the door. I snorted I was laughing so hard :-) No idea where she learned that cuz I never say that but whatever it was awesome.

  124. Maria @BOREDmommy :

    And a funny, little quote from Steven Wright to hopefully make you laugh:

    Babies don’t need a vacation, but I still see them at the beach… it pisses me off! I’ll go over to a little baby and say ‘What are you doing here? You haven’t worked a day in your life!’

    Last school year my 4 year old’s (at the time) teacher was trying to talk him into giving her his new baby brother. She told him she had everything for a baby at her house. Alex looked at her with a very serious face and said “Do you have breastmilk?” His teacher died laughing and said well I guess not.

    Tonight my 6 year old son, Kaleb, came downstairs stood beside me and said “Mommy, I’m going to need a piece of blue paper, some tape and maybe a rubber band.” He then went back up to his room! I still have no idea what he wanted all the items for!

    For a funny comment, I leave you this, which they say it’s the funniest joke in the world:

    Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn’t seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, “My friend is dead! What can I do?”. The operator says “Calm down. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.” There is a silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says “OK, now what?”

    Two friends of mine were playing ball once. One had a baseball bat, the other the ball. The one with the ball wound up and said “And here comes the pitch!-” The other hit the ball straight into the other’s eyes. He ended up spewing some rather unsavory words and left home to tend to his eye. Then me, conveniently with a pair of shades on said “Looks like you just hit………a home run.” My friend followed suite by yelling “YEEAAAAAHHHHH.” /CSI Miami reference.

    My friends and I were walking in London when a LARGE, older Italian man with skinny, gorgeous & much younger Italian woman on his arm walked by us.

    So, I was doing the household laundry the other day and emptied the washer. I checked back in to make sure I removed everything and I saw something still in the washing machine…it was the top/”cap” of a very large acorn. I don’t know where the acorn was but I had to laugh at what a mom might find in the washing machine. : ) Thanks!

    WSe were visiting my Aunt a few summers ago.
    She is one of many characters in my family that decorate my memories with many small stories that make me smile.

    We had rented a car that talked, meant to remind us of things to do, like locking the car.

    We had planned a Tex-mex meal one evening and drove to the local grocer.

    Upon leaving the car we had left the keys in the ignition. The car told us to “not forget the keys”.

    My Aunt laughed and wondered how the car had known to remind us “don’t forget the cheese”.

    A true story meant to be handed down forever.

    Thanks for giving me a chance to share it with you. Jann
