Funny Friday

Today’s post is May’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is  collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

Here’s today’s picture. It was submitted by me:

Riding the Train - Baking In A Tornado

“Engineer” to the guy laying on the tracks:

1. “You may be bigger but guess who’s smarter.”
2. “This’ll teach you to steal my cheerios.”
3. “Has this thing got turbo?”
4. “You should have known this day was coming when Mom bought me the train and you the tracks.”
5. “Let’s play Survivor Living Room.”

    1. Yeah, as I recall the one driving the train was fine but I probably had to bribe the other to lay on the tracks.

  5. This picture pretty much sums up everything we know about raising boys. If I had to submit a picture of my sons, the youngest would be chasing the oldest through the house with a dirty plunger. Or a live cockroach. Boys will be boys

    1. Yuck, I think I'll take a train over a dirty plunger or a live cockroach. Although I'm not surprised that you can relate.

  6. Your boys were so cute... I don't know what they look like now, so I can't compare, but totally adorable! I have a feeling my brothers would have gladly posed for this picture when they were younger. :)
