Compassion Limited

For your laughing pleasure, another glimpse at the trials and tribulations of my teen years:

"Come quick." "Lenny's hurt." "... fell off the slide." "... poked a stick in his eye."
For the rest of the story, pop over to: The Grownups Wanted Us Dead.

That couldn't have been a ton of fun.

Glad you are back. I hope you had a nice intermission. :)

barely the beginning, eh? Do tell.

Earworm: Somebody's gotta be the grownup around here. You remind me of the old rabbi who, after a particularly hard week, went to prayer and said,

God, I thank you that we are your chosen people. But do you think, just this once, that you could go choose somebody else??

OC -- I used a similar line is a sermon I gave about Moses. It was pretty much a stand-up comedy and had the congregation rolling in the aisles.

Jan -- if you want the rest of the story just click the link! It's there, I promise.

Chana -- satisfy that curiosity. I don't want to be responsible for your demise!

Brian -- didn't I? And that wasn't the only time those kids embaressed me. (Yes, I know I spelled that wrong, but the pun wouldn't have worked otherwise, okay, Jackie?)

O I had read the post on the other blog, I thought you had ment that "that" was only the beginning. I should know better than to post a comment while still half asleep!

Those teen years were full of interesting times for me too!

Don't forget this Wednesday November 22nd is "Roasting Dr. John night!" Simply write a blog in his honor sharing stories true and untrue and all in good humor. Have fun and hope to see you Wednesday night!

Margaret -- but I don't talk on Wednesdays!

Oh my. I'll follow the link, but you have to love the irony of an introduction touted as laughing pleasure fodder followed by a stick in the eye.

And congrats for landing your humerous self in the caption contest winners circle again, my friend! :)

Sar -- I love your caption contests. I am so thankful for the day Nessa coaxed me over there -- for more reasons than you can possibly imagine.

Very funny story. Only our families can help us create such stories; D

Nessa -- And my family is truly a gold mine in the area of slapstick comedy.
