Speaking of belching, when I was 19, I worked for a large grocery chain here in Phoenix, and one of the clerks I worked with was notorious for his loud belches. I mean this guy can definitely qualify to enter a belching contest, and win, not only for his loud belches, but for sustaining them for a few seconds!

My son, the artistic child, was in the car with a bunch of the wresting guys from the high school team. He was about 16 at the time. He asked me to explain the difference between identical and fraternal twins was. He then turned to his friends and said, "oh Lindsay and I are fraternal twins" I was soooo shocked to hear him say that. I heard his sister said, "Jason, maybe 21 minutes but not 21 months apart!!!" He seemed confused. When I asked him why he thought that. Of course I had to pull over because I had tears from laughing so hard. He said he thought I had told him that one time. When he was little he was tiny for his age...off the chart on the bottom. Lindsay was big for her age and when they were about three and four they were the same size. So we bought them matching PJ's and matching sailor suits (big in the 70's) and we called it "dressing twinzy's"...I guess we never thought he would conclude from that, that he was a twin. He will never live that down!!!

Well Im not sure this answer will fit into this category but here goes.
My job has us all scheduled with some pretty crazy hours. Though none of us are full time, we all have to work different shifts. Period. Even the managers do.
But...heres one for ya. My work schedule is posted on our fridge in the kitchen. We're getting ready to go somewhere today, and I happen to glance at it. Crap!! I was supposed to be at work at 10 this morning (its already 10:40)! So....run upstairs, change into my workboots and make a flying dash for work. Get there, only to learn that I dont have to be in till 3...the schedule on the fridge at home was next week's hours! Duh. Not only are our days wierd, but our 'beginning of week' starts on Saturdays, not on Mondays like other jobs. Heck these days, who knows what day of the week it is.
Anyway, at least my truck got washed and now I can watch a movie (or surf the cd board, lol) till its time to go this afternoon. The family went on ahead to the event, no big deal, but I wont be living this day down for awhile, lol.

The one thing I can't live down is my father came down here, to Arizona, and left me with my mother when I was in high school (her and I didn't get along too good back then). He only came back for holidays and my birthday (for 2 years).

He came down here to find a better place to live and go gold panning up in Quarzite. I wanted to go with him and go to high school here, but he said no and that I was getting to close to finishing (I was a junior; 11th grade, at the time).

My mother and I had many arguments while he was gone and I had ran away a few times too, but I still went to school and did good (I graduated 35th in my class of 120).

I just can't seem to live that one down.
