In honor of my birthday, I shall share a funny story with you that happened yesterday while I was antique shopping with my mom.
We entered the large antique store and were nicely welcomed by the man standing behind the counter. Then this all went down and had me chuckling out loud for a good portion of the rest of my day.
Man: Hello ladies, how are you today?
Mom and I: Good, thank you... Just dandy, thank you!
(I am quickly off in la-la-land, looking at cool old things, but paying attention to the conversation)
Mom: How are you, is the question!
Man: Not so great, but that is a loooong story.
Mom: I see! I'm a good listener and I've got coffee!
Man: Yes, but is it Timmy's??
Mom: Yes, actually, it is!
(Be patient, the punchline is coming)
Mom and I carry on looking and discussing the store items with the man, and the conversation turns more personal. The man mentions that business isn't going so well because the residents of his town really don't support local business, and what a shame that is.
Me: Ohhh, so is that part of the answer to the question... why you're not doing so well?
Man: Well to be honest with you, it all started 69 years ago with a violent passage through the birth canal and it hasn't gotten much better since!
Mom and I: HAHA!!!
Me: Ohhhh... we probably shouldn't be laughing at that... [continuous giggles for remainder of day]
I just thought that was such a hilarious outlook on birth. Suitable story for my birthday, right?
Happy day to you all out there. Smile at someone random as a present for me today.
