Short attention span

I should be working on my school project, but instead I finished reading my first Chelsea Handler book, surfed Facebook, and then called my sister to tell her about a big compliment BF gave us this morning at breakfast.

Let me flashback about 10 or so years ago. My sister was dating this guy who was slightly younger than I was and had just graduated college. He was nice enough, but his insecurity soon started to become a source of comedy for us as did many of her beaus. He always seemed quite jealous of the close relationship that my sister and I had and we thought it was hilarious. We were sisters and shared 2o something years together doing stupid and fun things, how could we not be close?


The last straw came when he accused us of speaking our own "language" in front of him to cover up the fact we were talking about him. He called it "sister speak". My sister and I found this completely amusing and the only response we found fitting was to roll in laughter on the floor. Seriously, he thought that making fun of him was a past time for us. Well, it sure wasn't until he brought up "sister speak". Needless to say, his insecurity got the best of him and he was soon history.


Back to present day time. BF and I were eating breakfast this morning discussing comedians and what we like/do not like about them. We basically have different tastes in many areas of life (shocking, isn't it??!!lol) and we soon discovered that our comedic planes are not flying out on the same runway, so to speak. He says he doesn't get the humor of people making fun of other people. Ok, he does have a point, but what we both agreed upon is that we don't like people who get up on stage and start ripping on themselves. It's not funny. If you don't like you, how can you expect other people to like you?


Anyhow, I told him that there are not many people who get my sense of humor, however, my sister is one person that I know will for SURE understand how funny I think I am. So then the following conversation ensues:


BF: I notice that when you talk with your sister on the phone, you sound different.


Me: Really?


BF: Yea. I can always tell when it's her because of the tone of your voice. You know how Beavis and Butthead talk? Like when Butthead says, "Uh -- gotta ask my mom's boyfriend. Huh--huh." That's what you two sound like.


Me: Erupts into laughter. That's awesome! I can't wait to tell my sister! Thanks, honey, that's a huge compliment!


After breakfast, I decide to call my sister to tell her the good news. First thing I told her was the initial "you sound different" thing...


Sis: (Laughing loudly) Oh, does he want So and So's number?


Me: No wait, it gets better. He says we sound like Beavis and Butthead!


Sis: Ha ha. That's awesome, that's a huge compliment!


Me: That's what I said!!


Needless to say, we were both feeling great from the Beavis and Butthead moment and reminisced a bit about the good ole days. The best part is that BF finds all of this very amusing. Smart guy. Somethings never change, some people never grow up, but that's perfectly fine by me.
