This was the funniest comment of the day courtesy of my friend Patty.

She had just asked me how I was feeling and how the shoulder recovery was going.  I explained it was going great – 2 more months of PT – and then we’ll hopefully get the other shoulder fixed.

She looked at me incredulously and said:  “WHAT DID YOU DO?”

I explained about the rock wall…blah, blah, blah.

She looked at me and said “Why were you building a rock wall?”

To which I said:  “I enjoy manual labor…and it’s beautiful!”

That’s when she said it.




She went on to say, “Men say ARRRR” (making a growling sound)…”Women say aaaaahhhh” (making a sweet little sighing sound).

Needless to say, I haven’t laughed that hard in quite some time.

I told her “I’ll be sure to remember that the next time I get the urge to do manual labor!”

I’m still shaking my head and smiling…

I wish you could have heard her.

The way she said, so emphatically:  “YOU…ARE NOT…A MAN!”

Yes, I will remember this Patty.

Thank you for the literal laugh out loud today!

I hope you readers had a good LOL moment today too!

Happy Saturday!

  2. I used to be an “arrrrr” kind of gal, but since I had back surgery and live with chronic pain, my physical capabilities were stunted. I do love gardening, but pay a huge price afterwards. Great article!

    • Thanks! I’d rather be the “arrrr” gal, but am finding my body doesn’t want me to be. Take care of yourself!
