Make-Me-Laugh Monday!

Last night I got to hug Barack Obama.

In my dreams!!

No literally, in my dreams I hugged him and it was wonderful.

This dream had to be at least the 5th of which involved me meeting/knowing/hugging Obama. We're practically best friends by now...

"I'd like to give a shout-out to my best friend Maria- I love you girl!" See, the feelings are mutual.

Did anyone see him on Jay Leno last week? I thought he was so charming and funny, but then again, he is my friend and that's pretty much a pre-requisite. On the show, he was talking about Secret Service men that don't allow him to do certain things, such as take a 5-minute walk. In my dream, I hugged him, but Secret Service was standing by. Maybe I'm a little more dangerous and suspicious-looking in my dreams. Any worries the Dreamland Secret Service may have had was probably erased when after hugging Obama I exclaimed "Yes, I hugged him, I hugged him!!" That part of the dream was probably the most accurate because I believe that's what I would do if indeed I did get to hug Mr. Obama.

The point of this whole story is that I made myself laugh first thing this morning when I remembered this dream. If it didn't make you laugh--and it probably won't because other people's dreams and inside jokes are often only funny to themselves--I want to at least provide a joke so that I don't disappoint you. And if you would like to leave a joke or funny dream, please do!!

Here is a joke that my aunt told me. It's sort of about religion, but since I have already sort of talked about politics, here it goes...

A taxi driver picked up a nun and while they were driving the driver said, "Sister, I have something to ask you. I know this sounds weird, but I have always wanted a kiss from a nun; Do you think you could do that for me?"

The nun responded, "Yes, I think I could do that for you, but you have to promise me two things. One is you must be Catholic and the other is that you must not be married."

The taxi driver said, "OK sister, I promise that I'm Catholic and that I'm not married."

When they got to the destination, they both got out of the car and the nun gave the taxi driver a kiss.

The taxi driver then said, "Sister, I have something to confess- I'm not Catholic and I have a wife."

The nun looked at him and said, "That's OK, my name is Larry and I'm going to a costume party!"

Well, on that note, have a great week!!


  1. Thinking about you and Barack as BFFs made me smile. And your nun joke was funny too.

    For some reason your cheese post didn't show up in my Google Reader until today...

  2. haha this dream made me laugh. i'd want to hug him too! i had a dream the other night that my friend was eating chocolate doritos! wishful thinking perhaps??

  3. Oh good, I'm glad other people liked this dream! I was a little unsure if talking a tiny bit about politics would be a bad thing, but I really don't have a lot of readers yet, so probably not!

    Jordan- Chocolate doritos?! Now that's a great idea!
