No moral lesson today. I just laughed at this so hard, I decided it deserved a blog.
It was just me and the two oldest on the ride home today. We were having our normal after school discussions such as: "How was your day, how was lunch, you should reapply your deodrant after football practice, etc."
Out of the blue James (13) says, "Smurf mortal combat - now that would be a great spoof". My incredulous response, "What are you talking about?"
So James goes on to tell me this detailed story line of famous people and charcters spoofed as smurfs. He suggested Schwarzenegger smurf, Gandalf smurf, and Chuck Norris smurf (just to name a few).
He outlined some great movie moments for me, while I screeched with laughter and tried hard to hold the steering wheel steady. Schwarznegger smurf would walk away from the fight, "I'll smurf back.". Gandalf would swing his staff around to guard his territory, racking himself, and yelling "oh,smurf!". James said that Chuck Norris would win the battle "because he's just smurfy."
The longer he went on, the harder and harder I laughed. Gosh, I love that kid. I'm sure it was much funnier in person with him doing all the voices and impressions, but I thought that maybe, just maybe, if you really use your imagination you might catch a small glimpse into my crazy life.
