Fun and Starbucks are at stake!

If y'all knew me, you'd know that I'm a little on the weird side. And, weird in a real weird, funny, corny kind of way. So, I think its time for us to have some weird, funny, corny fun together.

This is what we are going to do. And, it makes me laugh when I think about it. You know the word verification thing that comes up in some blog comments??? It looks something like this....

I have this tendency to see these and as I type my word in, I say it out loud as a real word. And, I instantly think of how to use it in a sentence. And, I laugh every time at the corniness of it all.

But, that is exactly how my mind works.

Won't you play along? I've got a $25 Starbucks gift card that I'll give to the one that personally makes me laugh out loud. That means you have to define the word and/or use it in a sentence. There will be no random generator thingy......just me and my humor picking the winner. I'll do this on Friday morning sometime when I can! Oh, and I don't care how many times you enter. It's all for fun and to make me laugh real hard.

Ok...let your honest, real, fun answers come on! And, how weird will it be if the word verification isn't up since blog authors can't see it? That's gonna mess with the fun a little if it's off, so be sure and let me know if it's not there.

Have fun! I love me some fun!

Hugs and blessings~

My, oh my! My sweet gratedge would know no earthly bounds if my sweet Fran would send me a Starbucks card. Because, without it I have to get my vanilla latte at McD's and we all know that a latte is not what they are famous for. And, although I do have a sort of, POOR MAN if you will, gatedgetuity for McD's prices, I would much rather be spending my gratedgetuitivness at the Starbucks!

Mulaq (pronounced moo-lock)

Definition: When your husband puts an end to the spending of copious amounts of mu-la.

P.S. As a disclaimer, the technique of mulaq is not recommended for men named Jon due to the ensuing escalation of joncide.

P.S.S. However, I do hear that it is heartily endorsed by Dave Ramsey in the Total Money Makeover. But then, his name's not Jon, is it?
