Something To Make You Chuckle: A Funny Dad

I am so happy and blessed to still have my father. He overcame with the help of God, Leukemia and is doing well today. I love talking to him because every time we get on the phone we always end up laughing so hard at the things he says. He doesn’t try to be funny. It’s just the way he says things and the tone of his voice that just tickles me to no end. I think the thing that makes me laugh is that he says things that I’m not expecting him to say.

So we’re talking and he tells me how he and my mom used to donate to a certain organization. When he was diagnosed with Leukemia my mom got on the phone with this organization to ask for help, since they had contributed to them for many years. They told my mom that my dad didn’t have the right type of disease and they were unable to help them. What! I said to my dad you’ve got to be kidding really dad. Yep, he says that’s what they told us. So I say to him I guess you don’t contribute to that organization any more. “HECK! NO!, DON’T MAKE ME SAY BAD WORDS!!!!” in other words don’t get him to cussing.

He said that and I started cracking up. “Bad words Daddy “, I say  cracking up. You don’t expect your parents to say something like that. After all they are all fully grown so if they want to say a bad word or have a potty mouth they can very well do it. It’s funny to me because I expect something like that to be said by my preschoolers not by my dad. It was wonderful to have a great laugh with him.

I hope this gave  you a little chuckle. Have your parents ever said funny things that  make you laugh but aren’t necessarily meant to be funny. Please share them with us in a comment below. Have an amazing day! :-)

  1. My late father (dead almost 30 years now) had a very dry sense of humor. Not sure any of it would translate – and I think I inherited some of it. You are blessed with still having your Dad. Please, enjoy every minute!

  3. My dad always made me laugh too, but it was Mom who said things not meant to be funny that cracked me up. You didn’t dare laugh at it in front of her though : )
