Friday Funnies is hosted each week by Kim at Homesteader's Heart. I hope you'll join in and spread some funny!

A first grade teacher collected well known proverbs. For a quiz, she gave each child in her class the first half of a proverb and asked them to come up with the remainder of the proverb.

The Wife Who Forgot Her Husband's Birthday

There once was a wife who ALWAYS remembered her husbands' birthday. Each birthday she would greet him every birthday morning with "Happy Birthday!" It made him feel special. I think. She thinks, I mean. Eighteen years into their marriage, she woke up thinking about how fun it would be to keep the Grands this weekend. Snuggling with Nolie before bedtime and naptime, loving on Li Li's chubby self....and she was excited because she recently purchased 2 new Hooked On Phonics DVDs that featured Itsy Bitsy Spider and Pat-a-Cake to instill a love of reading and help them learn hand motions to their favorite songs and thought about that.
She said her prayers, got dressed for the day, kissed her husband bye as she walked out the door. A little later that morning her phone rang. Her phone is one of those fancy schmancy phones that has the date and time on it. She freaked. She forgot!
So I called my husband to wish him a "Happy Birthday" and he says, "Why, thank you! It is my birthday, isn't it?" I said, "Yes, I'm so sorry I forgot to mention it this morning. I love you." He pauses, "Who...wait a minute! I thought you were so and so from the office who always keeps up with our birthdays until you said I love you." "No, this is your wife!" I replied! Granted, I haven't had my coffee yet and I am nowhere near perky. We had a great laugh over it anyway.

Happy Friday! For more Friday Funnies head over to Kim at Homesteader's Heart. Be sure to link up and share your own!

Too funny! Both stories! I hadn't thought those proverbs in a while. My sister and I did these with our own children a few years ago and got some good laughs.
