Say What?

My contest is still on. Don't forget to drop a comment and facebook, twitter, or blog about it for extra points.

Now on to today's post.

Saturday we took the whole fam to our church's Christmas party. Think lots of smiling people, lights, and kids bursting with excitement as they waited for Santa to make an appearance. When he appeared, the fat man in red disappeared behind a wall of children and the waiting began. Picture this

but in color, and with more children all hyped on candy, pizza, and good old fashioned yearning. Oh, and it's in the church. Filled with church people. Lots of church people.

Now place me, my kids, and hubby smack dab in the middle of it. And this is what I heard:

Awesome neighbor, who always asks about my books and knows I've been trying to off the bad guy, yelling over crowd noise to my hubby: Hey, did your wife kill that guy yet?

This is what I saw on the faces of about 100 church going neighbors:

Hubby, who didn't see the above reaction: Actually, she killed him today.

Every head swiveled to stare at Hubby. And this happened again:

Awesome neighbor, who also didn't notice the staring throng: Really? Did she blow him up?

Hubby: No. She stabbed him.

Now picture awesome neighbor giving me fist bump and asking if I used an exploding sword.

It was super funny to watch everyone's reaction. It was also super fun to finally kill the guy off. He had it coming for a long time.

How was your weekend? Did you have any say what moments?

Love the story!

At my writer's group on Saturday, we were discussing how the line, "Oh, she's not a succubus yet," would really raise eyebrows in any other crowd. It's so fun being a writer!

LeishaMaw said...

Jenilyn, that would raise the eyebrows. I say we get together and head to the mall to try it out. I'd love to watch as people did a double take. He he.

Jonene Ficklin said...

Oh my heck! That's so funny! Don't you just wish for the super-power of reading minds, if only for the few minutes that conversation was going on?

LeishaMaw said...

Jonene, that would have been awesome. I wonder what they were really thinking.

Cherie said...

Too, too funny. I will actually be posting a lovely story on my own blog (to go with the hot chocolate),so stay tuned.

LeishaMaw said...

Cherie, it was a memorable moment. I wish I'd been wise enough to bring a camera to snap a pic. :)

A hot chocolate story? Yum. I'm in.

L.T. Elliot said...

I think my respect for your hubby and your neighbor just went through the roof. ;)

LeishaMaw said...

L.T., he is an awesome neighbor, and my hubby is so far beyond awesome that there isn't a word for him. Yet somehow I'm always amazed at how cool he can be.

That struck my funny bone real good!!! Still laughing. . .=) Maybe you should recreate that for one of those hidden camera show!!!

Thanks for making me smile!

LeishaMaw said...

Dancing Queen, glad to help with the smiles. :)

It is an odd occupation we have chosen, is it not?
I've had similar moments in my own discussions...it's who we are.
Very funny, Leisha

LeishaMaw said...

Clancy, I love having these moments. It's great isn't it?

Donea Lee said...
