A Snortin' Good Time
Holy Mama! has moved to holymama.org, please update your links and feeds.  Thank you!

Well, when BooMama invites some people over, she draws quite the crowd! I've been out of town and busy and haven't visited your living rooms yet, but i will. (And looking forward to it. )

We went to Dallas for the weekend and spent time with my dad and his wife, and HolySister and HolyCousin. So fun. HolySister came back with us and is here until Sunday. (Woo HOO!) We have already laughed so hard we did the snorty snort thing until our stomachs hurt. Repeatedly. We've shopped. We've laughed and cried and shopped some more. (Oh! the shoes! The glorious shoes - I'll have to photograph them in all their splendor later.)

It doesn't take much with us. Yesterday we went through the drive thru at Burger King to get Hershey's Sundae pies. HolySister was famished and she gets very grumpy when hungry, so speed was of the essence. But I didn't take the most direct route and three whole cars made it into the drive thru line ahead of us, while we sat in the turn lane watching. I was greatly amused by this, and HolySister was NOT.

So I pulled up to the menu and say, "Hi, I"d like a bottled water, a large diet coke, and two Hershey Sund-ee pies, please."  I glanced at HolySister and we exchanged a glance that said, "Ew! I/You said Sundee!" then I turned and got my total from the talking menu and rolled up my window and we dissolved into giggles. Big, stupid giggles and snorty snort laughs that made it worse and led to more, larger snorty snorts and we. totally. lost. it. I'm Southern, I suppose, but not THAT southern, and no I do not intentionally say "Sundee." And it was the funniest thing ever for no reason whatsoever. Just trust me on this. If you'd been there, you might have spit and snorted while laughing, too.

We try to get it together before it's our turn at the window, and we think we succeed. Until the lady leans out to take my money, and asks with concern, "Are you all right, hon?"

I just say, "Oh great, and you?" We get out of there and I turn to HolySister and say, "Do you think that was 'Are you all right?' like 'How are you today?' or was it because maybe I'm..."

and HolySister says, "CRYING?! I think it's because we're crying!" And we were. Over one mispronounced syllable and some hunger induced hysteria and oh my gosh. It still cracks me up.

Almost as much as what I did to the toast on the floor this morning, but I'll save that one. That was so recent that I can't possibly write about it and not wake up Seth-9mth. Oh, snort.

Oh this post totally reminds me of me and my very best friend in highschool. We would do the silliest things, silliest to us anyway, and laugh so hard that I think at one point one of us might have wet our pants. Very funny Holymama, I'm still laughing:))

Oh, I absolutely adore "sister" time. Our husbands and boyfriends can't possibly understand why we'd be in stitches (with tears rolling down our faces) for hours!! Ahhhh, the bond of sisterhood. It's grand!

My sister and I snorted a good bit this past weekend, too - over nothing, really, except some realllly bad renditions (by us, of course) of old gospel songs. Doesn't take much with us...and I'm glad you have your sister with you this week for some snorty fun. :-)

Oh geesh! This post had me laughing...and missing my best friend, who now lives 3 hours away! We are silly like that together!!! Oh and how I miss those pies from BurgerKing!! We don't have a BK near us! How pathetic is that?

So that's where you were! I've missed the little number 1 in parentheses next to your name on my Bloglines. So glad you had a good time and many good laughs. I'm seriously curious about the toast though.

Oh, and the shoes! Can't wait to see the shoes!

In my little corner of the Midwest, the preferred mispronunciation, usually found among older people, is SUN-duh. All my mom has to do is say this, and my sister and I just lose it laughing.

Your posts crack me up! I have been reading for some time just never posted. Being from Texas myself-I am right there with you on soooo many accounts. I too have a best friend that people always look at us crazy when we are shopping together b/c we can say so many words with a laugh, gesture, look or a smile. You know what I mean???

Hilarious!!! We did that at dinner the other night. The waitress was thoroughly disgusted.

Aaaah. Makes me miss my sister so much- I love those times we laugh histerically at something only we could think was funny!

I'm snortin' right along with you (in my head that is....if I snorted out loud here at work I'd get some real weird looks!) :-)

Sounds like you and your sis have a good time together!

Laughing with your sister until you both dissolve into snorts is so fun! My sister actually had one of those "Southern" moments before. Instead of saying light normally (as in quickly and not much emphasis on the "i") she drug out the "i" for like 10 syllables. She sounded like a pure redneck! We laughed and laughed about that one!

You should hear the way my hubby says "water" at the drive through. We are all soooo embarrassed- the kids would all hide under the seats lest anyone know they were in the same car. I'd tell you how he says it - but I don't think there is anyway to spell it! ;D

Oh, are those sundee pies actually any good?

Can't wait to see the shoes.
Have to admit, I say Sundee all the time.

Oh, no more sisterly snorts, please!!! I just spent two weeks doing the Sister Snort with my li'l sis. You know, the one who used to tell me I was gross for trying to get the visible boogers out of my kids' noses. "Just leave them there until they learn to blow into a kleenex," she used to advise me. Now, she's got twins. That's twice as many boogers to dig out of those wee little nostrils, so she's much better at it than I ever was.
