287 - Finding the humor in everything

Walked by the television and they were discussing heavy flooding in central Texas. Not funny.

Then they mentioned that 'all but one section of Schlitterbahn is closed due to the flooding.' Funny.

Mom -- "Hey honey... it's flooding out... wanna take the kids to Schlitterbahn and splash around in the water?"

Dad -- "Nope... not such a good idea... it's likely to be crowded today since all but one section is closed."

Mom (scowling) -- "Okay, I'll put the boat back in the garage... sorry kids, your father just doesn't want to make the effort..."

I mean seriously... I don't know about you guys, but if it's flooding out, I don't really plan on leaving the house unless I have to make a run for it. Schlitterbahn? Not high on my list of priorities...


  1. Did you get flooded? I know Central Texas got hit, but I don't know if you are nearer to Houston or San Antone.
    Hopefully you are dry.

  2. Schlitterbahn is always my top priority. Isn't it everyone's?

  3. Joe - No, I'm way south. I feel bad for the people experiencing it... it looks horrific.

    TS - You know, I do have a vague recollection that when you were fleeing the Nashville flood, you mentioned Schlitterbahn...

  4. Kristy.... Waterslides are always a priority....

  5. My granddaughter's other grandparents were up there and had to get the heck out of Dodge.

  6. Schlitterbahn..wow that is a name you don't hear every day!;)
