It’s time to giggle this week on to Romance Writers Weekly Blog Hop. We’ve been invited to tell a joke or share a funny story. Get ready to laugh!
I am going to share a story that has gone down in family lore. In fact, it is such a favourite that when my son had to chose a subject for a Grade Eight public speaking assignment, he chose it. I actually found his speech in my files, and thought it would be extra funny to share the story through his eyes.
“This story about my Gramma is one so bad we had to make a song about it. Here's how it starts. It was a crisp winter morning and my grandparents decided to go snowshoeing through their trails at Tabor Lake. They walked and walked and then they were walking along side the Old Giscome Highway. My Gramma had always wanted to know what it felt like to have the snow from a snowplow fall on her. Well, it was her chance because a snowplow came barrelling down the highway. The driver blew the horn when he saw my Gramma in the ditch but she was clueless to what might happen. She thought it would just be a little sprinkle but boy was she wrong. Meanwhile my Grandpa who doesn't like snow in his face turned around when the snowplow drove by. When he looked back he saw nothing but snow and the points of snowshoes. Grandpa hurried to dig her out of the pile of snow. As soon as she told us this story my two sisters and I had a great idea. We made a parody of “Gramma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” and converted it to “Gramma Got Blown Over by a Snowplow.” We gave it to her for Christmas in 2007 and it is still framed on her living room table.”
My mom’s going to kill me if she ever reads this blog post, but she should be used to it by now, as this is one of the first stories we tell new friends and family.
Now it’s time to hop over to PG Forte and see what she has to share that will make you laugh!
