The Last Time I Laughed Really Hard.
I laugh a lot so this story isn't really the LAST time I laughed really hard but it was the first thing that popped in my head so here it goes...
A few years ago, Sparky and I were preparing supper together, we were cooking steaks on the grill, boiling potatoes for mashed taters, tossing up a salad, etc...
Sparky and I have a lot of fun together. We play jokes on eachother, he scares the crap outta me, I throw candy at his forhead, we wrestle and chase eachother around, goofy stuff like that.
So anyway, we were cooking supper and I had just taken the steaks off the grill and had them on a plate to take into the house. I can't remember what exactly made me ask him to do this for me but i asked him to skip across the yard.
Sparky: What? Skip? You really want me to skip? Like a little girl? I can't skip!
Me: Come on, just do it, for me, please.
Sparky: No really, I don't think I can physically skip, I don't know how to.
Me: What? Everyone knows how to skip, you learned it when you were a little kid, remember?
Sparky: I don't think I ever skipped when I was a kid. Seriously.
Me: Whatever, just try it. Picture in your head a little girl skipping around. You got it pictured?
Sparky: Yea, I see a little girl skipping.
Me: See how she's doing it?
Me: Ok good. Now you do it.
Sparky raises his arms up, kicks one gigantic foot straight out in front of him with his toes all spread apart like Fred Flintstone, and hops.
I know it's pretty hard for you to picture for yourself but that was THE most hilarious thing I have ever seen in all my 37 years! A six foot, 240 pound grown man trying to skip, looking like a total I don't know what!
Remember how I said that I had the steaks on a plate to take into the house? Well, I was laughing so hard, I had to go down on my knees in order to keep from loosing the plate cuz I couldn't hardly keep my balance. I think I even peed in my pants a little.
One of these days I'm gonna get his skipping on tape and put it on utube for the whole world to see.
Sparky is the best sport ever, anytime I ask him to skip, he does it and it's just as hilarious as the first time cuz he STILL can't do it right and he looks like a great big dork but I love him anyway with all my heart forever and always!
Sometimes, (when I remember to do it) when we're in a parking lot somewhere and I get in the car before he does, I make him do a little dance before I'll unlock the car door and let him in. That's another great laugh cuz he immediately looks around to see how many people are gonna see this shamful display of random white boy dancing. I'm merciful though and only make him do his little dance for about 5 seconds, then I let him get in the car and I laugh my butt off!!!
Like I said, he's the best sport ever!
