Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments?

This is a new one for me but welcome to Friday Fragments for all those random things that made you giggle and raise your brow this week. For more Friday Fragments head over to Mrs. 4444's blog and check 'em out!

*One, let me say this...I LOVE DVR! Therefore, I watch shows that I typically wouldn't watch but because I can watch them whenever I please I find myself recording lots of random shows. One of these is 18 Kids and Counting. By no means do I want to get into a discussion about this circus sized family but I did hear something on an episode that totally cracked me up. It was when Michelle (the mom) and Jim Bob (the dad) were at a Lamaze/Bradley class prior to giving birth to number 18. The instructor began talking about cervical softening...which I guessed what that was since I've birthed no babies (thanks Gone With the Wind)...and I was right. But if in case you don't know what I'm referring to, cervical softening can be enhanced by engaging in sexual relations with your partner. So this instructor is talking about how "rigid and unloved" a cervix is if the couple believes the myth of no sex during yeah, do we even need to talk about cervical softening when you have Michelle and Jim Bob in the room?! They are on baby 18, for pete's sake! Her cervix is definitely loved!

**Mr. Ski volunteers with the high school football team at Fort Campbell, he's been working with the JV and Freshmen teams which holds many funny fragments but my favorite one for this week was one of their kids who got hit pretty hard and was knocked out for a minute or two. When he came to he looked at Mr. Ski and said "When I was knocked out, I couldn't remember anything Coach!" REALLY?!?! YOU'RE KIDDING!!! I'm so surprised that you couldn't remember anything while being knocked out....oh kids.

***Recently I got a FB message from a friend of one of my older sisters. She apologized for never sending me the Ramona book series like she promised she would....when I was SIX! I didn't remember that she had let me down like that and had failed to send the books but I guess it has haunted her for the last 20 years.

****And finally, a fragment from my most favorite comedian, Mitch Hedberg: "An escalator can never break: it can only become stairs. You would never see an Escalator Temporarily Out Of Order sign, just Escalator Temporarily Stairs. Sorry for the convenience."

Make your own Friday Fragments and use Mr. Linky to attach them to Mrs. 4444's page!


  1. These are terrific fragments, Mrs.Ski! Welcome! I love DVR, too, but all I tape is Dr. Phil. I watch all of the episodes on the weekends in one fell swoop while I love up on blogs :) As for the Duggars, I love them. But why in the world are they in Lamaze class?!! That's funny (the friend who carried the "guilt" all these years. That series was pretty great, though, so I can understand a little, heehee. Thanks again for joining in this week :)

  2. P.S. Great job on the link! ;o)
