I was chatting with a friend on Facebook and a typo led to both of us having a good laugh. As usual, it was my typo.
We talked about many things and our conversation led to talk about the wildlife in my area. I said, “There are racoons and popasoms here.”
My friends’ response.” Oh yes….I know those those popasoms really pop when you hit them.”
Me: “Lol. Yes it’s very messy. I am so putting this in a story, so funny. Guts everywhere.”
Me: “Poop little popasoms.” Then I typed, “Poor.”
Me:” Laughing so hard now.”
Friend:” Me too.”
Me: “I may call them this from now on. “
Later in the conversation I told her. “The sad thing is that I also do things like this when I speak. lol”
We chatted some more.
Me: “I can’t top this. I think I will go get something to eat now.” and I did.
Seriously, people. How do I do these things? And how am I so lucky to have a friend with just the right response?
I was sitting in my living room laughing so hard I was almost, okay I WAS squeaking as I laughed. My husband was asleep on the sofa and I thought I might sqeak laugh him awake. It’s a thing.
I pictured my friend sitting in her home, states away, laughing just as hard. How great is that? All because I can’t type. Beautiful. Just beautiful.
When my husband woke up, I told him the story and he laughed. He said, “Poop little popasoms, poop. You can do it.” And we laughed. He is pretty great.
Popasoms. Now my favorite animal. Also my favorite word. Use it today if you can.
