How to make Lisa Laugh Uncontrollably


This week we had a new fridge and a washing machine delivered.

Over the weekend, Robb had made some unpleasant discoveries about the state of the floor and roof in the laundry room. "Hey cool! When you look inside these cabinets, you can see the sky!" "Oh dear, the floorboards seem to be somewhat rotten."

Our short term answer was to park the washing machine on a furniture dolly, until we found time to repair the floorboards.

Robb had a story to tell me when I arrived at the house, after work.

Robb: "So, I did a load of wash today.....And do you know what happens when the washing machine is sitting on a furniture dolly?"

Lisa: (uncontrollable laughter)

Robb: "... and it goes into the spin cycle?"

Lisa: (uncontrollable laughter) ..."It spins itself around the floor?"

Robb: "It walks itself across the room..."

Lisa: (uncontrollable laughter)

Robb: "...until it unplugs itself..."

Lisa: (uncontrollable laughter)

Robb: "...and falls over, making a sound like somebody destroying the house with a diesel tractor in need of a tune-up."

I just asked Robb if he knew the model of our washing machine so I could find a picture of it. Without pausing for one second, he offered up this mnemonic: "gay lesbian transgendered friend, number 2940."

Dude, you have a gay washing machine?

Too bad about the floor. Maybe you can just put your dirty clothes in your cabinets and when it rains they get a washing? Yikes.

Get some lumber, pronto! Spray insulation- "Great Stuff" -fills many ills and covers many holes. I use it religously in our old house. Winter is a-comin!

Oh, this was just a temporary setback. We'll get it all under control. (Unlike my laughter.)

OMG... now I'm laughing hysterically - I know you probably don't watch much television, BUT on our local Mythbusters - Jamie and Adam, did a washing machine myth and ended up stuffing "Buster" in the machine and the effect was tramatically hysterical. One of my all time favs of the Mythbusters' antics!!!! Way to go Robb... maybe you can join their crew since you've got first hand mythbuster type experience!!!!!

Thanks again for this terrific post!
