Random Funny Things My Kids Say - Part 6

My husband goes to the gym to lift weights and comes home all pumped up. He walks into the bathroom where I am emptying the laundry hamper and whips off his shirt to stand and admire himself in front of our large mirrors.

“Check this out!” he says as he flexes and poses, showing off all his muscles.

“Very nice dear,” I say, hardly glancing at him as I continue sorting laundry. I get this alot.

“You’re not even watching! Look!” he insists as he begins to add sound effects to his poses.

"Grrrrrrrr, GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! UNH, UNH, UNH, GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!"

Youngest happens to walk in and stares at her crazy father as he continues to grunt, grimace and pose. Noticing her standing next to him, he makes one last grimace (mean face) and grunts right at her while lifting his arms up and flexing his biceps in the classic bodybuilder pose a la Arnold.

“Daddy,” youngest asks very seriously. “Do you have to poo poo?”

“No,” he responds, quite insulted.

Youngest shrugs and walks out, leaving me hanging onto the side of the bathtub laughing my ass off.

He gives me a dirty look and says, “That’s YOUR daughter," and slinks off sullenly.

Oh yes, that's my girl!

You need to take these gems into syndication!

Hey, you should be pleased. He could come in at 300 pounds, toss his belly on the counter while he picks nose hairs next to you, and grunts as he pulls each one out.

I think you've come out ahead.

So is that picture your husband or Arnold? I can't tell them apart.

Hotwire said...

Demon Hunter said...

AHahahahahahahaha! I have a guy friend (not the boyfriend! though he works out too) who is obsessive about going to the gym. Me personally, I do it, but I hate every second. Anyway, after my friend works out, he poses in front of a mirror flexing and takes pictures of himself! Then of course, he posts them on myspace...
Whatever works for you, I guess!

I love your daughters...

Larramie said...

These are always such visual "one-liners," Ello. How about a comic strip?

Lana Gramlich said...

*ROFL!*

Jennifer L. Griffith said...

THAT was hilarious, priceless, and MORE...

Thanks for a GOOD belly-laugh.

Chris Eldin said...

heh heh!!!
What paca said....

Your girls are very funny!
:-)

Bernita said...

That picture is scary. Really.
And the psychology behind it is too.
There's fit and there's self-obsessed.
But Pac is right.

Patti said...

The Anti-Wife said...

I'll never be able to look at weightlifters again without wondering if they have to poo-poo.

Mary Witzl said...

My husband, fresh from the gym, could knock over buildings, and I'm not much of a treat myself after exercising so I'm too wimpy to leave the gym before showering. Your husband is a brave man to wend his way home still musky; be sure to tell your children that!

Wish I could give Arnold some of my flab for some of his tone, though. I think such an exchange would result in an improvement for both of us.

SzélsőFa said...

in this picture, Arnold is a thing, not a human being anymore.
Your kids are funny, Ello!!!
And Paca has the best comment.

Sustenance Scout said...

ELLO, I just spent the last twenty minutes reading your latest posts and laughing my *@#*! off! Your family's a riot, and so are you! K.

Travis Erwin said...

Yep, kids are harsh. I feel you husbands pain, but on the other hand I have a hard time relating to anyone who exercises of their own free will.

McKoala said...

Good for youngest.

Do weightlifters need oily gleamy nose-insides too, Paca?

booklady said...

Oh, that is too funny! I bet he doesn't show off like that again!
