One of the very best laughs ever!

So if you read my post on Sunday Sing-Along this week, you'll see that I thanked my friend, Marian, for one of the best laughs ever. She and I have been friends for about 16 years. We do everything together when we are together. Her family and my family are family! The other day, she had me laughing until I cried for at least 15 minutes...those are one of the best things in life! Something you definitely need to do once in awhile. So what was so funny? Mind you, you really needed to see it in person, but here goes...maybe it will at least bring a smile to your face.

Saturday, we are outside cleaning up the patio area. There's a cover for propane bottles like this:

by the house and one of those Rubbermaid storage box closet things.

She asked me if we were going to keep it. I said no...then I said, "Ewww, look it's all cracked and it has a wasp nest in it." Apparently she did NOT hear me. A few minutes later she grabs that cover and says something like, "There's a wasp over here." Then as she's pulling the cover away she says, "Oh no! It's after me!" She's dragging the cover with her right hand and running around frantically yelling and waving her left arm in the air, "It's after me! It's after me!" and I'm trying to tell her, "Yes, because the nest is in the cover you're dragging around!!!" She finally hears me, drops the cover and we both start laughing hysterically. Then I'm trying to repeat the story, but I'm laughing SO hard that all I can get out is jibberish...this goes on and on for about 15 minutes...we were laughing so hard we were crying and our sides were hurting.
