Show and Tell Wednesday

Time for Show and Tell Wednesday on Bacon’s blog…Piglove.  This Show and Tell is one of a favorite or comical moment in your life.  There have been many comical moments in my mom’s life.   Many of them are not nice to talk about and she’s the only one that thought they were funny anyway….or so I’ve been told. This incident happened many moons ago…in the 80’s.  Dad was working out of town and would come home every 4 or 5 days to visit with mom.  Usually he was just home for the night until his turnaround came.  His turnaround was like 5 days at home and then back to work.  That was construction in the boonies.  There wasn’t the access to cell phones like now.  Mobile phones were huge and cost a small fortune.  So dad rarely called mom and when he did the conversation was very unsatisfactory.  For example:  “I love you” became…”I live less.”  It was always nice to hear his voice though.  This one year dad had come home and explained to mom that he had to work through Easter and wouldn’t be home for days afterward so mom decided to boil up some eggs, decorate them and put them all through his flat deck one ton truck.  She made the designs with the paint and brushes, got the stencils for the hard ones.  They were beautiful…according to mom.

That's more like the type of designs on the eggs!!

Mom decided to hide the eggs on his seat, under the seat covers, on the visors, in the glove compartment, one on the floor by the gas peddle…you get the idea. Well, dad left real early the next day before mom was up and motored back to work. That evening mom got a phone call from dad and he was fuming mad. She was delighted to hear from him…until he told her why he was calling. Apparently she hadn’t cooked the eggs long enough before putting the designs on them and disbursing them throughout the truck. He had jumped in the truck and broke the first egg…no sweat, he thought, I’ll just change my jeans. That done he got back in the truck and headed up the mountain dirt road toward the camp. He quickly applied the gas and broke another egg. The sun was shining in his eyes and so he pulled the visor down and a partially cooked, painted egg face fell and cracked on his lap. What did mom do when he told her?? She laughed her fool head off. What can I say…that’s my mom.

    OMP – I can’t breathe here. We are all laughing. That is hilarious!! I can just picture your sweet mom’s face doing something so nice and sneaky. And then your dad’s face as the eggs broke – I can’t breathe. My side hurts. This was great. Thanks my friend. XOXO – Bacon

      They sure can laugh about it now….it was a very long time ago and an example of mom’s sense of humour. Mom says grandma had the same sense of humour….I guess weird runs in the family!

    M and I are laughing hysterically here. That is such a funny story, and M said it’s something she would have done too. WHOOPS! Is that what they call a Blupper? Sorry we’re laughing at your mom’s expense, but it really is a funny story.

      Mom did mean well…it just didn’t work out that way. I guess he forgave mom….they have been married for 43 years….dad’s probably a little warped himself…shh…I didn’t say anything.

    That is True Love. My mom has done weird things like that too. M O L.I think it’s ’cause they have known each other such a long time. My parents have been together for more than 46 years and married for 42 years.That’s a loooooooong time.
