Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Erv and I sat at our cousins Big Fourth of July Pig Roast Blow Out eating chocolate cake that we are pretty sure came straight from heaven. The kind of cake you look at and your teeth hurt, it was that good. Nothing was going to make us sit that plate down until it was empty. I wish someone would have thought to bring me a cup of coffee though. As we shoveled in tiny bits of every candy bar imaginable our dear mother emerged from the house clutching a plastic, 5 foot, punching bag wrestler. She proceeded to mingle with the crowd and show everyone where the wrestlers belly button was.
"Are you writing this down?" Erv asked me in between glorious cake from heaven bites.
Am I writing this down? The imaged is burned into my retinas. Mother continued to mingle and we continued to eat our cake. Our cousins laughed at us as we discussed who's house the nursing home should be closest to.
I'm not sure if this is where the Big Fourth of July Pig Roast Blow Out began to spiral out of control but it might be. Grandma's boys (I'm not claiming them as Boy #1 and Boy #2 in this story) decided to give Karaoke'ing a try. That Karaoke equipment looked expensive, I'm glad they are both over 18 and legally liable for damages. Amazingly enough nothing got broken. Here is the video of my offspring trying to be the life of the party, you know to out do grandma. They are singing Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Give it to about 45 seconds in to stop jiggling, Precious Baby Boy#3, the good one, was having a hard time holding his phone still.

I'm so very proud of Boy #3 and his knowledge of getting this video onto my computer from his phone. Didn't he do a good job?

Hey Uncle Silly Willy and Aunt Fluffy, I don't have the pictures yet!

I wish I could have actually watched it :( My comp would only play it in a break up here half a note type of way! Whaaaaaaaaahhhhh

Um....I hope they don't quit their day jobs.


Boy #3 did good.

Sounds like you had fun!

We stayed in, caught up on honey-dos and stuff. Wee!

I've been waiting for this post since Saturday. It was icredibly funny and bit disturbing.

You're right the cake was awsome.

That was probably the first time I ever heard that song and begged God for it to end.

#3 should have gotten some footage of said delicious heaven cake. I hope it's not as good as those hell cookies I was promised for my soul.....I only have one, you know.

Well, that's just great. I was about to go to bed and now I'm craving chocolate cake and I'm afraid I'm going to be haunted by Cyndi Lauper nightmares.

Just when God takes away Michael Jackson, he gives us your boys. And the universe is back in order.

Leeuna said...

The singing wasn't something one would want to listen to all day but the choreography was fantastic. Those guys must be a hoot to have around. Sounds like you all had a great time.

ReformingGeek - Grama thinks they should try out for American Idol.

erv - Those boys are incredibly disturbed. And the cake, I tell everyone about it.

Beau - There will be no footage of me shoveling chocolate cake into my face, sorry.

Jamie - Hopefully I got that song stuck in your head too.

Doug - I always knew they were meant for great things.

Leeuna - That's almost what it's like at my house every Sunday.

Nooter - I'll try to save you some next time.
