Disclaimer: If you are a blond or have ever been a blond, have a blond spouse, child, grandchild, sibling, relative, friend or even have a blond cat, dog or parakeet, please be advised that the following post is not intended to offend anyone who is remotely blond but is shared with the intent to give you a chuckle and a smile : )). The blond in this post is my big sister, Diane, whom I hold in very high esteem. She is very intelligent and highly educated with two masters degrees in education and has been in full time pastoral ministry for many years. However, her blondness frequently emerges on the most unlikely occasions and places and she cracks me up when she shares her blond moments with me. Thus, with my big sis' permission, I share with you her most recent blond experience in hopes that it will give you a smile and lift your heart and as my Sweet Mama always says, "Here's your laugh for the day".....
"The Blond and the Camo"
A blond (my big sis) was walking through Walmart and noticed a man dressed in camouflage standing in the check out line. The blond (my big sis) who has such a soft patriotic heart and always makes a point to express her gratitude and appreciation to military persons for their service wherever and whenever she encounters them (i.e. restaurants, church, grocery stores, sidewalks, movies, doctors offices, etc. etc. etc. ( I think you get the picture) halted her stride and headed over to the camouflage clad fellow and began to passionately thank him for his sacrifice and service to his country and for putting his life on the line to protect and defend our freedoms throughout the world and then continued on to assure him that she would hold him in her prayers for protection everywhere he goes and for all that he does....this went on for several minutes. As she was in mid passionate sentence...."thank you for all you do", the camo clad bewildered fellow sheepishly smiled at the blond (my big sis) and said..."uh, lady, I'm no soldier, I'm just going huntin'"!
The blond (my big sis) laughed at herself all the way home and later called me to share her blond/camouflage faux pas and we laughed till we cried (and boy did I need it)!
I hope my big sis' blond moment gave you a laugh and a smile today, my friends. Laughter is gooood for the soul and lifts our heart! And we can never have too many laughs and smiles in our daily journey!
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine...
