A nose knows all those smells that only a nose would know

“Well, it is hard to believe that it has been over three months since my last entry”....sigh, I am wondering where on earth does the time go?

I was able to do a overnight get away with my family to the Wisconsin Dells to go to a water park. My sister, brother-in-law, daughter and nephew all shared a room to save some cash. In the morning we all were taking our turn in the shower. My nephew went into the shower and my sis had gathered together some clothes for him to wear for the day. After a few minutes in the bathroom, he cracked open the door and piped up “Mom, can you get me some underwear?” My sis replied back to him...”I put them in with your clothes”. He replies back “Mom, I want some CLEAN underwear”. My sis says to him “Well, I assumed they were clean when I got them out of the pile where your other clean clothes were”. He replies back “Mom, they are not clean”. She replies “Well, how am I suppose to know they are dirty if you have them in with your clean clothes???” He assertively comments back to my sister with a sound like DUH.... “Mom, you S-M-E-L-L them”. My sis blurts out, “you’ve got another thing coming if you think that I am going to smell your underwear!” We all roared in laughter till our guts hurt! 

A sense of humor is a major defense against minor troubles.
