It's a Smith thing

Growing up in the family I did if you didn't have a few inside jokes you just weren't living. I've been thinking a lot of my family over the past couple of days for some reason and wanted to pass on some of the inside things we shared. Only not the explanations. Just the "punchline," if you will. It won't make a lick of sense to you, unless of course, you fall into one of these categories:

Girl Cousin over the age of 43:

Pizza subs

'86 Corolla: My dream car

Slave labor =)

Sister or Girl Cousin between the ages of 39 and 42:

"How about a nice bowl of chicken soup?" "NOT CHICKEN SOUP, TUNA SOUP, TUNA FISH SALAD!"

"Old man, you know...shpllbbt"

"I do my job every day!"

"Get out of here, Gerald!"

Girl Cousin between the ages of 38 and 39:

"Flippah! FlippAH!"

"Anoshnurshnah...and all of a sudden I heard..."

"I wanna marry huh, dad!"

Boy Cousin between the ages of 36 and 37:

Moon boots and highwaters

Skip-bo

"Benevolence"

Girl Cousin between the ages of 36 and 37:

Bathing in Prell

Waking up to your cousin having deposited her supper all over her, you, your bed...

Matching 70's tube tops

Boy Cousin between the ages of 29 and 31:

"I told you I'd be back, didn't I?"

"Ium-be-
iums"

"South-*-haven"

Girl Cousin between the ages of 25 and 27:

1,323 pictures drawn of me and for me

Your favorite babysitter

All of the Above, as well as any member of the Smith family not recognized:

SHALUPIES!

Now, it's your turn. If you leave a comment (and I REALLY hope you do), leave me just a line from one of your family's private jokes or inside things. Don't explain, just leave the line. I think I'll laugh even harder if you don't tell me what it means.

And you thought I had such thought provoking thoughts. Serves you right.

Well, since we share the same crazy family...you'll know ;)
"Martha! Martha!! No good."

"I was just standing there...tweet tweet!"

And thanks for making me laugh so hard - after the day I had, it was very welcome. So much silliness...I miss it a lot.

Hey Sister! I'm doing laundry at the Holiday Inn Express in Miles City MT and checking out what I've missed on your blog since I've been gone.

I had to wash clothes - a horse peed on my jeans the other day. I KNOW how to have FUN on my vacation!

Anyway, I'm pooped, but your post and the comments made me laugh out loud, right here in the lobby.

LOVE YOU - and ALL those other crazy SMITHS.

You'll be hearing from me soon.

You really have a way of bringing back the memories. I have a few that you'll know...and a few that you might not.

What's this horse's name? Strawberry!

Redneck Petah...Petah...Petah is his nay---muh.

I cain't...they ain't no gas in da cah.

I got a dog named Tony Maroney...he looks like a stick of baloney.

Mama...did I ever be bald?

How old was I when I got hair? Fourteen!!

Pah-too-uhhh!!

Those above are ones you might remember...the ones below are ones from my house that probably won't make a lick of sense, but they're funny to us:

Is your hair laying down?

Sup cuz?

Can I get on the inganet?

I know everything...I'm telepathetic!

Do we have any print-zels?

And another thing we had a lot of when we were younger...biscuit pudding! Man, I miss that...guess I need to make some. Btw, I tried that apple dumpling recipe from the Pioneer Lady that you shared...yummy stuff! Love you, cuz!
