Anyway, I fell asleep watching Whose Line is it Anyway? last night. That show is so funny! The problem is that I sometimes have to turn it off because they tend to make too many sex jokes. Anyway, I fell asleep watching that, and while I was asleep, that got over and an infomercial thing came on about sponsoring the poor starving, disease ridden, parent less children of Africa. (And poor little Sally Muckinfutch with a finger for an eye) I'm sure these are wonderful programs, and if I had 2 cents to rub together after paying our bills, I'd probably sponsor some poor child. Anyway, my mind was still in Whose Line is it Anyway? mode. (Often when I'm asleep, I still hear the TV, and whatever is on infiltrates my dreams. This can be especially bad when those late night infomercials come on, because with my defenses down, I'll sincerely believe that whatever they are selling is the most wonderful thing in the world. I woke up one time, thinking that this new technique to weight loss -where you only have to workout for 7 minutes a day to loose all of those extra inches- was the answer to all of my prayers, and I needed to call right then. Then, awake, I thought about it for 2 seconds and realized it was the stupidest thing I had ever heard. It's a good thing that I can't buy things in my sleep, or I'd be in debt to my ears, with my space under my bed filled so full that my bed would be touching the ceiling. "I don't care what it does, as long as it folds up and fits under a bed!" -Pinky from Pinky and the Brain) ANYWAY, my mind was still on Whose Line... and my brain kept coming up with these hilarious lines poking fun at these poor starving, disease ridden, parent less children. I was really funny! (At least to my sleep fogged brain.) I kept partially waking up, realizing that they were serious, and thinking "Renae, that's terrible!" Then I'd fall asleep and make fun of them again. Bad, bad, bad.
BTW, the quote in the title is a messed up version of "No man stands so tall as when he stoops to help a crippled child." I don't know where it's from, but John likes to say it messed up. This is actually the quote that made me rebreak my rib, laughing (after a day of wrestling Justice -it was the straw that broke camel's back, or my rib).
