I am a boob

I keep telling stories about how I am misunderstood or how people do not get my sense of humor. In defense of all my neighbors I have to admit I do not know many of them well enough or I should say they do not know me well enough to get me. I know if I spent more time with them they would eventually get to know me better but until then there will be miscommunication.

Our neighbor Jane called the other day to wish us a safe trip. Lauren was out running errands while I was home with the kids. Wyatt was not happy because it was time for him to be fed. It was while Wyatt was screaming that Jane called.

I answered the phone, “Hello.”

“Hi Bill this is Jane. How are you?”

“Good. And you?”

“Good. Is Lauren there?”

“No she ran out for a bit. She should be back soon. I will tell her to call you.”

“Okay. I was just calling to wish you a safe trip.”

“I’m sorry. What did you say? Wyatt is screaming and I am having a hard time hearing you.”

“Oh. Is everything okay there?”

“Yes. He is just mad at me because he is hungry and I don’t have boobs.”

“Oh Well I am sure you will soon.”

“What? I figured I have another five years before I get them. I mean I know I am not in the best of shape but c’mon.” I said with a chuckle.

“What? I meant I am sure Lauren will be home soon.”

“Oh.”

But seriously, I need boobs. Can I get Laurens too?

Does Lauren know about your 5-year Man Boob plan?

TBG said...

So no man boobs for you!

That was really nice of your neighbor to call and wish you a safe trip! Try not to scare the nice ones away!

jd said...

That was really funny!

Yah seriously....the Five Year Man Boob Plan aka F.Y.M.B.P. (as Cat called it)...is that something Lauren is ok with? You should discuss it with her first.

William, for the record, I would totally get your humor if we were neighbors. So either I also have a weird sense of humor, or there is something wrong with most people in Florida.

Holy tata's Batman!

I had no idea where she was going with that one...except in the direction you took it.

Hmmm, what does that say about me?

Just make sure you wear the bra...don't want to get caught without one...who knows what would happen then! I know I don't.

kalki said...

The farts, the come-ons, the bad boob jokes...you are harassing the neighborhood.

barnmouse said...

"Manziere"? I thought it was "Bro"...hehe

I wish my neighbors had ANY sense of humor. Jane should consider herself lucky! :)

You are so funny.....I wish you were my neighbor......I would understand you......

Hi William! :)

Rude Cactus said...

Honestly, I would have jumped to the same conclusion and, chances are, said something very similar. So, I applaud your quick and witty response.

Amanda said...

You crack me up. I get your humor!!!

Effie said...

What your neighbour said was equally funny though...I have to say! I mean, what COULD you say but what you said?

So, are you gonna need a "Bro" or "Man-bra" soon? Teehee

Me Jane. I want to hang on your man boobs.

MrsDoF said...

Hehheh. What does it say about me that I got your neighbor's joke and then had to go back and read it over again to understand yours?
You and my MrDoF would get along fine as neighbors. Probably much better than a couple we have now.
