Irony

Factoid 1: My son hates spiders. Hates them.

Factoid 2: All summer long, he worked out every day with his dad after they got off work. My son (well, for that matter, my husband, too) has quite an athletic build. Part of his routine included drinking whey powder in milk right before he would leave to work out or immediately upon returning home.

In addition, he was big on eating cottage cheese for protein, which became his new obsession for the entire summer, so I was continually buying more cottage cheese. So if your local Walmart or HEB was out of cottage cheese this summer, it was because they were pulling it from your shelves and shipping it to Muncie to feed my boy.

What's the point, Dexter.

Observation: Ironic Equation.

Factoid 1 + Factoid 2 = The kid who hates spiders spent the summer "eating his curds and whey."

Wow! You're good ... very good. I'm impressed with that one. You can find the irony in anything. You did make me chuckle a little.

Mocha with Linda said...

Chatty Kelly said...

And she sails one over the fence - HOMERUN!!! Loved it! I can see this one in Reader's Digest! You should condense it a bit and send it to their "Life in the US" or something! LOL!

Cindy said...

Very funny as are many of your posts I just read.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I am with you - I enjoy reading lots of blogs - but I really enjoy reading those of people closer to my age with similar life experience.
Good to get to know you.
Blessings, Cindy

Robin Lambright said...

I love it when two thought that seem to have nothing in common suddenly meld in a wonderfuly yet obscure whey! Thanks for the giggle! You have no idea just how much I needed it!

Fran said...

Susanne said...

LOL. You totally have a gift of seeing that kind of stuff. I totally didn't see that coming. Too bad you can't send him care packages of cottage cheese, eh?

Misty said...

regarding the old spice scream pt 2: i hope you enjoy gus's (of sean and gus fame) little "eeeps" and screams as much as i do, then!!
and yes, the irony of this post is pretty funny. my dh is also on a cottage cheese kick, and also screams like a girl when there is a spider around (or thinks something has landed on him...).

I would have never dreamed of writing something so clever...

you rock girl...

Edie said...

LOL!! You're such a deep thinker Lidna. I just love that about you. :)

(off topic)
I really like the animated coffee maker in your header. I stopped by the other day and when I arrived it wasn't pouring. I thought it was on the blink (which would require immediate replacement in my home). Then it started pouring. It never dawned on me til then that it actually fills a cup and then gets a new cup to fill. So today I watched it for a bit (exciting life that I have) and it even adds cream. Now if it adds Splenda too you can say it has all the "Perks". Ha! (I must need something to do.)

Debbie said...

Oh my! I wasn't expecting that conclusion...

"MoodyBlue" Jodi said...

How funny!!! You got to submit that someplace. That is just too funny.

By the way...I love the picture of you Zoe kissing you. She is just toooooo cute for words!

Chel's Leaving a Legacy said...

K, I have to admit, I was really starting to wonder where you were going with this one at first.

I thought maybe those wacky hormones were getting to your head!

But, lo and behold, you came through again! Whew...that was a close one.

Chel's Leaving a Legacy said...

OH, I forgot to ask...

Do you have an HEB up there in Indie? Or do you have that many friends in Texas???
