Quote of the Day – Grapefruit Kind of Day

Print Friendly


Today’s Quote Of The Day:

“Life is as unpredictable as a grapefruit squirt.”

Forget the lemons. It is grapefruit that scares the bejeebers out of me. : )

I am beyond tired today. To top things off I have received call after call from someone having to deal with this or that problem. 

Tawra even called and said “Okay what do you do when your car breaks down and you call a tow truck to tow it and the tow truck breaks down?”

This has been the type of thing I have been hearing all day. Nothing major, thank goodness, but just life’s little irritations, so when I saw this quote I had to burst out laughing and ask, ‘Is this not the truth?”

I’m not sure why it struck me as so funny but maybe I just needed a good laugh or maybe it’s because I love grapefruit but have always eaten them in a very scared and tense state because I never know when it is going to squirt and when it does it always hits me in the eye. :) :)

    “Okay what do you do when your car breaks down and you call a tow truck to tow it and the tow truck breaks down?”
    sit down and laugh. what else can you do.
    you can’t make them go by being angry,
    you can’t make them go by crying.
    being angry gives you frown lines laughing gives you laugh lines. I prefer the laugh lines personally.
    crying makes your nose run and gives you red eyes.
    laughing gives you tears but they are a nice thing to pass on.
    let a smile be your umbrella on a rainy rainy day.

      That’s exactly what we did. I started laughing so hard. My poor children call their mom with these things I burst out laughing. I’m sure I have warped them some how for doing this over the years. To make it even funnier when I found this quote a few minutes later that was perfect for the situation and started laughing all over again.

    Jill, I understand the laughter. Sometimes life is so bizarre and weird you have to laugh. People have told me I giggle a lot. Mostly at how crazy life can be sometimes. Like grandma said “What else can you do?” Pray.

    i agree bea .. when there is nothing u can do about situations .. you pray .. and yep .. if u can laugh (instead of cry) at situations well i think that helps too ..
