Do you ever just have those moments? You know the ones. You're going about your day and BAM! something incredibly funny happens, but you don't have anyone to share the laugh with.
This has happened to me several times lately. At the beginning of this deployment, I might have been really upset when experiencing this. Now? I simply laugh out loud...no matter where I am.
Fortunately for the general public, it rarely happens when I'm out and about. I could just imagine all the stares I would get if I were to bust out laughing - alone - in the middle of the PX, Commissary or WalMart. Scandalous! ;-)
I was walking back to my car after a brief stop at the PX a few weeks ago. It was the Saturday after payday, which means the parking lot was insanely full. I'm walking to the car, happy about my purchases and enjoying the pretty day when I hear a car alarm. This car alarm sounds vaguely familiar.
Then it hit me. A memory of listening to a little Dane Cook spoof...
I kid you not. This car alarm said, "Helloooooooooooo, I'm a carrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Gasoline makes me run. Back-seeeeats, truuunk space..." And yeah, I might have though, "Oh, Dane..." ;-)
Right there, in the middle of the parking lot, I died laughing. Joe and I absolutely love us some Dane Cook. I thought of all the "funnies" that would come from both of us after hearing that car alarm. Fantastic.
I'm sure the passers-by got a good kick out of seeing me bust out laughing...for no apparent reason. =P
Just happened to me. Here I am, sitting on my couch watching NCIS. Not expecting anything.
Dude gets blown up while about to get in his car. Dude gets blown back by the force of the explosion. Normal day for NCIS. *Commercial break* DiNozzo and Duckie are at the crime scene making tons of jokes... Why? The guy was blown OUT of his shoes. Insert typical "knocked his socks off" and "blown away" jokes from the cast.
What else but another Dane Cook spoof would come to mind?! Of course. It could only be Man Gets Hit by Car. =) Enjoy, my friends.
"Has anyone seen my shoes?! I kicked them off in a fit of joy!"
Sometimes, you just need a good laugh! Please tell me I'm not the only one who busts out into laughter while by themselves...
Happy Hump Day!
