Things that you just should NOT laugh at.

Ferrets:
My paternal grandmother died a few months ago. The opening line of the message in one relative's (genuinely kind and thoughtful) sympathy card to my father:

"I was so sorry to hear your mother died peacefully..."

So on Saturday we went to the apple orchards with a small group of Bronies and then went to lunch afterwards.  As we're sitting at the table, this one guy was talking about watching some tv show with his brother when he was younger but he only saw three episodes.

One girl asked him what show it was and he says "Oh I don't know, some silly little kid show". 

For the uninitiated, "Bronies" are adult fans of the Hasbro/Hub show "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic", a show that was originally geared towards little girls who would be most likely to beg mommy and daddy to buy the toys.  But it garnered a rather unexpected following from adult males (and females) who love the show. 

I was trying very hard not to laugh at the irony when the girl who'd asked him for the name of the show remarked "Considering who we are, I don't think we really have the room to call anything a 'silly little kid show.'"

The mental image of big burly dude sitting, sans pants, in a pan of cold oatmeal...ROFLMAO.  Which is good, since my Benadryl hasn't kicked in yet... ::)

I HATE poison oak!!!

This reminds me of a story my friend told me. She took a course one summer, somewhere in Europe, then spent the rest of the time traveling to various countries, meeting up with various people, etc.  I think this happened in Greece, on a beach where clothing was optional. One of the guys she had met decided to take advantage of the "clothing optional" part, and proceeded to sunbathe, nekkid as a jaybird. And not realizing that the parts that normally don't see the sun will fry like an egg - esp when exposed for the very first time!  She said he pretty much dumped a bottle of aloe on his nether regions but still was in pain for several days!

I once fell asleep on the beach on an overcast day, not realizing that the ultraviolet rays pass through the clouds so one can get burned badly without ever feeling the warm sunshine on one's shoulders.  My whole backside blistered.  It was hard to go back to work and sit on a chair for 8 hours a day.  I sat on the edge of the seat so my upper thighs did not touch and avoided leaning back so that the blisters on my back wouldn't burst when I pressed against the chair back.  I don't want to think of how uncomfortable he must have been sitting on a sunburned, blistered keister. :-[

Outdoor Girl:
Ummm... I was thinking he burned the frontal region.  Which would be even more painful, I think.
