A Funny Story

When Vince decided to start knitting, I offered to give him some of my yarn . . leftover pieces or something . . anything just to learn to knit and purl with.  He could have his pick of any needles . . I have all sizes.  NO!  He wanted to go to Wal-Mart and get his own.  His own yarn and his own needles.

When he was checking out, he went too a register where one of Chad’s friend’s was working.  Here’s their conversation:

Erin: You going to knit?
Vince: No. You know Chad is fixing to graduate and it might be hard for him to get a job so we’re going to teach him to knit and maybe he can sell some of the things he knits to earn some money.
Erin: Oh, really?

I had forgotten all about that conversation.  This weekend Chad and I were talking.

Chad: Vince got me a present and he hasn’t given it to me yet.
Me: What kind of present?
Chad: I don’t know!
Me: How do you know he got you a present?
Chad: Erin told me that Vince got me something but she wouldn’t tell me what it was!

Then I remembered the knitting yarn conversation and I was cracking up!  I explained to Chad that Vince was learning to knit and then we were both laughing so hard we had to explain to Vince that Erin had told Chad about the “present”.   We all got a good laugh out of that . . doesn’t take much to entertain us, huh?

    Doesn’ t take much to entertain us either. Just reading you post has me laughing enough for DH to ask questions and now that I’ve read it aloud we are both laughing! Hope Chad and Vince enjoy their efforts at a good yarn!

    OMGosh!!! I love it!

    I have a friend and when she asks something, I give her some tall tale and she gobbles it up, hook, line and sinker.

    My hubby had prostate cancer and was treated with the insertion of radioactive “seeds”. I told my friend that one of the side effects would be his privates would glow in the dark. (Now I thought this was taken as a joke by her.)

    Much later, we were at dinner and she asked me how bright things were. I cracked up, her hubby (and mine) also laughed their butts off. She truly believed we wouldn’t need a night light anymore!!

    Have a great day, Judy!

    I’m laughing over this whole thing and some of the replies too! I started laughing, husband didn’t even look my way, “must be Laquidara” says he! Thank you, for it doesn’t take a great deal to entertain us either!

    Guild cancelled again today because of weather. Snow is really coming down now and of course, bitter cold.

    Love the great story. Erin must have been totally embarassed when she found out she took it – hook, line and sinker.
    #6 Mimi’s story is also hilarious too.

    I love the comments as much as the post!!! Funny! I love how Donna in KS’s hubby knew what she was reading… I can’t begin to count the times I’ve waited for a commercial on TV to read off one of Judy’s “Vince” stories from her blog to him….. haha 🙂
