Conway Twitty sees the light


I like to use the classic "three strikes you're out" policy when it comes to mass email forwarding...
-The first time, assuming the "10 ways to recycle old pantyhose" was merely a knee jerk reaction to watching Inconvenient Truth amidst a dry spell in their Netficks queue, they get the benefit of the doubt. 
-The second one you cock your head to the side, erase without opening, and go back to eating your cereal hoping that they just forgot they had already used their "freebie". 
-The third is like the sick feeling you get when your friend starts a sentence with "believe me I totally get how annoying those multilevel marketing people are, but there's this opportunity..."
And that's the deal breaker my friends.
Unless, of course, you are my mother-in-law. 

...In which case no matter how many home remedies, kittens doing the "darndest things", and musical friendship video clips she sends your way...she is exempt from getting 86ed off the ole contact list. Plus she's sweet. and also she birthed and raised the love of your life...so she could probably shave the magical healing locks of Sonny's hair and i'd have to love her anyway.

Yesterday i received a gem that cannot go unshared (to ensure you are picking up what I'm puttin' down). In sweet pure hearted Jeanine fashion, the disclaimer at the top read "This is truly beautiful! Turn the volume up..."

And before you go thinking what an unbelievable douche i am for mocking a Jesus montage, please know: i did what i was told and turned the volume up...and therefore couldn't help but notice the awesome cowboy giving his two cents in the background. Ready set go...
....

Do i have the blackest heart of all time?...or are you laughing too? I love Jesus. I do! But here at team Boo nothing is safe from a good laugh, not even my own children. Oh who am i kidding...especially not my own children! And much to Sheamus's sweet five year old dismay, some things he's said recently are just too cute NOT to laugh...



 "Mom...How will i ever get big if i don't like gross food?"
 "Elyott, if i were a binky...would you suck on me?"
 "Elyott are you sure you want to go to the gym?...cause you might have to poop at the gym."

Recap: Jesus. Sheamus. Two of the purest people i can think of. Still funny when you add twangy one liners, or (legit) warnings about pooping in public.

team Boo 's you

Ugh! I thought I was the only one who had a mother-in-law that sent obnoxious forwards. Apparently she's very concerned for my safety because the theme as of late has been "how to escape from a mugger" or "How to make sure he's really a cop"...but always with some "You're my sister, girlfriend" ones thrown in.

Hahah to survive forwards, I just tell myself that the sender (MIL) is super funny and that they are really joking. But then another one appears on my inbox and the joke gets old...

Can we sing this at family gatherings, please? I can imagine Sheamus's sweet lisp voice and Travis's "r" problem...hahah.

my MIL loves the "animals in funny positions" forwards and the "ways to not get raped" forwards. both useful.

that video killed me. "HOW OLD ARE YOU?" "WHERE YA FROM?"

you're nice to give them three chances. when i see the FWD:FWD:FWD in the subject of any email, I'm already at the delete contact button before I could ever feel any twinge of guilt!
aside from my MIL, of course.
