Hump Day Treat

Here is a little hump day treat. With the whole family being in town the past few weeks a lot of reminiscing has been had, therefore I've been reminded of these hilarious moments that have occurred over the years.

1. When we were living in Idaho Falls (between the ages of 4 and 7 for me and 2-5 for Kate) Kate and I both learned how to ride two wheelers. For some bizarre reason we both wanted helmets so we begged Sharon for the specified safety equipment. Is it strange that we had to beg for helmets? Well i remember doing it and finally Sharon caved. I guess you can't feel good about denying your flesh and blood safety equipment. Kate and I were stoked for our new teal and white helmets that clipped very tightly under the chin. As soon as we got home we saddled up on our bikes and rode around the neighborhood with our chins held high feeling so cool. Apparently my mom had errands to run and me being six or seven and very responsible was left in charge of the delinquent Kate. Well we rode for what seemed like hours and then came home to rest and re-coop in front of the T.V. when to our dismay.........we couldn't get the helmets off. Those stupid chin straps would not budge, Kate and I started to panic and soon tears were flowing. We tried for a good ten minutes and finally gave up. We realized we had two options go to a neighbor's house and beg for their help or watch T.V. with our helmets on and wait for our Mom to get home. We couldn't possible stoop to such a level of embarrassment and go to a neighbor for help when we had just rode around the neighborhood with such confidence as if nothing could dampen our spirits, therefore we chose the latter. Picture this two little ladies watching T.V. on the couch with helmets securely in place. She laughed, we didn't.

2. I've always been a girl who appreciates candy, so when I get a craving for candy I usually search far and wide for it. After a rough day at FJH I had a huge craving for candy so i started searching the house and ended up in Cody's room. Jackpot! Spotted, one root beer barrel so I ate it and didn't even feel bad about not asking if I could have it because I honestly didn't think he would notice that it was gone. Well within hours Cody came rampaging into my room demanding the candy back. I was so confused, why would he be freaking out over one measly piece of candy. Well he enlightened me rather quickly, "Becca that was a farting pill and I paid five bucks for it and was saving it for a special occasion. " Seriously???? And he was, very serious, then he went on to tell me that I owed him five dollars. So basically I ruined Cody's special gas day and was out five dollars and I had a stomachache after eating that stupid "pill."

3. Kate and I once clipped Werty's (our old dog-see above picture for the back of her head) whiskers because we thought they were getting too long, no wonder the poor girl starting having seizures.

While you and Kate were cruising around on your bikes with your dorky helmets, I was down the street prancing around in the front yard with my mom's slip pulled up around my chest (like a slinky, strapless gown), with a stuffed bra, red lipstick, and making Ken and Barbie make out on Ken's lunch break. I was way too mature for you rat finks.
