April Fly on the Wall

Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 12 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house.

This month’s Fly on the Wall post is about some of the things a fly might see if he were to watch me posting on Facebook:

I posted: Question: If you get burned taking a cookie off of the cookie sheet, you should immediately eat the offending cookie so it can’t hurt anyone else, right?
One response: I think it’s the law!
The consensus of opinion: Yes, that cookie needed to be punished

I posted: If absence really does make the heart grow fonder, I think my teenagers should go away for a while!

I posted: I know its been a while since I’ve been in school, but I’m having a bit of a problem with this math:
A pile of my son’s friends slept over in the basement last night. This morning I came downstairs and in the laundry room (where the kids all throw their shoes) there was one extra pair of shoes. In the basement there were 2 extra sleeping kids and in the driveway there were no extra cars. Somehow this does not all add up.
One friend answered: Maybe Marty McFly landed at the wrong house.
And I said: I wish he had left me his car!

I posted: PLEASE don’t let my teenagers come home while my tongue is stuck in this Vodka bottle.
Followed by: Looking for believable explanations for a swollen tongue. Quick. Help. Before the kids get home. . .
And then: Ooooh, someone doesn’t like my predicament tonight. Just lost a “like". OK, who left?

I posted: The sun’ll come out tomorrow. Ya gotta hang on ‘til tomorrow, come what may. Tomorrow. Tomorrow. I love ya, tomorrow! You’re always just a day away!
ANYONE WANT TO GUESS WHEN MY KIDS GO BACK TO SCHOOL?
One answer: when the sun comes out?
And another: Hmmmm. . . Always so cryptic. . . It seems like there must be a clue . . .

I posted: Bad: every time I want to know whether or not I’ve seen a movie, I have to ask my older son. Worse: he always knows.
An answer: Who Are you??!! Are we related? I thought I was the only one that had that same situation.
And I told her: Maybe we ARE related. I wonder if my son knows what movies you’ve seen too!

I posted: Good news/bad news. Good news: the snowblower started. Bad news: school’s already been canceled for tomorrow. That’s the end of MY life. Well, my Thursday anyway.

I posted: Anybody else hear this in their home? “Mom, my friends are coming over so you can make cookies if you want”.

  1. I really do need to spend more time on FB! Not only are your statuses funny, so are the responses. You have some funny friends. If you ever lose a follower over an alcohol post, well, they weren't really a follower to begin with. That's your motherly advice for the day. <3

  7. I've always loved your Facebook statuses, and this was very clever of you to use them for a Fly post! Naturally I could pretty much relate to EVERYTHING in this post...well, except for blowing off the snow....does blowing off beach sand count?? AND best of all...you posted the recipe to one of my all-time favorite drinks!!! Good news, I think I have all these ingredients in my house right now!

  8. What a great idea for a post! We should all just put together our FB updates for the next Fly on the Wall. You are hilarious and I'm thinking this weekend might be a good time for a Mai Tai.

  9. Love the Facebook Idea. So you lost a like from the vodka question. My guess is you gained 5 or 10 from it anyway. ;)

    1. Maybe they'll come back for the Mai Tais, no vodka in those!

  10. You always make me smile Karen! This time you hurt my brain with that math problem. Who are these kids and where did they come from?! I had a vodka post this week too. About dry heaving to Bowmans vodka memories. Ahhh... Memories! Have a great weekend!

  11. Cracked me up as usual. I've been behind on my blog reading because of sis' surgery so I have skipped most of them - ssshh..don't tell. This put a big smile on my face.
    Enjoy your mai tai!
