Friday Funnies: What It Feels Like

About five to eight inches of snow blanketed the Twin Cities yesterday. I'm pretty sure it was on the upper end of that amount in our suburb. My car got stuck three times--two of them in my own driveway!

The second time, Steve was watching and kept telling me to turn the wheel this way and that way, and to step on the gas and then step on the brake. He was pretty calm about it. When it's the other way around and we're in the car together while he's driving, I admit that I can get a little bossy.

Thinking back to all that slipping and sliding on the roads reminded me of this joke:

A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband. Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen. "Careful," he said. "CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my gosh! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW!"

"We need more butter," he continued. "Oh my gosh! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful. CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!"

The wife stared at him. "What in the world is wrong with you?" she demanded. "You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?"

The husband calmly replied, "I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm driving."
