Silverback Gorilla

Just the other night, my mother-in-law came over and was playing with the kids. All of a sudden I heard this dreadful sound. It was the sound of my mother-in-law dry heaving. And not just a normal dry heaving sound. It was a from-the-tip-of-your-toes-dry-heaving-that-sounds-like-the-mating-call-of-a-silverback-gorilla-sound.


What was the cause of this obnoxious sound, you ask?

My four year old was chasing her around with a booger on his finger.

I think that the expression on my face when this happened was probably priceless. I remember I was staring at her with an "Are you kidding me?" look on my face. At first I thought she was kidding! But after I realized that she was REALLY dry heaving, I kept thinking, "If she pukes on my carpet, she's cleaning it up!!"

She didn't puke.

But I sure did have the best laugh that I've had in ages.

And Erin and I had fun that night in bed doing the dry heaving impersonations!!

(Sorry, Amber :) You know we love you...but darn it, this was such a good story!!)
