The day we became known as the neighborhood pervs

We had a family outing to the pumpkin patched planned for Monday night, IF Macy and Keller came home and got their homework done before 5:00. Macy screwed around, so I stayed home with her and Bennett (he would have just eaten dirt). BC took Keller and Campbell to the pumpkin patch by himself.
A certain neighbor (who shall remain nameless) was also there and pointed out this gourd.

For some reason (possibly related to being dropped on his head as a child), BC decided to purchase it and bring it home.
Yesterday, a friend came over to return some keys and look through Bennett’s old shoes. While she and I were sitting on the floor playing with our babies, Campbell comes in carrying the gourd yelling “LOOK WHAT WE JUST GOT!!!”
Did I mention that this is a woman who removes the JC Penney ads from her Sunday paper because they’re inappropriate?

She said “It looks like a couple of maracas hooked together!”

Maybe? Kinda? Sorta?

  17. Man, your neighbor is a perverted fool. And I cringe at the thought of using those as maracas.

  18. oh yes…maracas!! that's what came to my mind first thing;)

    this is totally something that would go down at my house!!

  19. I am still laughing, and it cracked conservative Jim up too.

  20. I bet BC just wants to rig them up underneath his truck. He prolly got the idea when you were on your way to the wedding. There are a few of those "manly" trucks in the area! Can't blame him for wanting to trick out his ride!

  21. Britney Jean says:

    wow. this post just made my day.

    I bet the guy ringing up this sale could hardly keep his cool.

  29. I don't even know what to say…..

    that's awesome!

  30. I kid you not that we had a gourd grow in our garden this season that was identical to that one! We quickly seasoned and cooked our "special" gourd.

  31. In the words of the rockette off Dirty Dancing "God wouldn't've given you maracas if he didn't want you to shake em!!" lol. Gross. Lol. Your blog is hilarious, I love it!

  32. Joni Walton says:

    Those are some mighty fine maracas!

  33. Maracas? Is that going to be the new slang?

    Having worked in an office that does vasectomies….

    Thanks for the fun picture! Nature has a great sense of humor.

    Maybe your husband will put it with a "butt crack" pumpkin for yard display? That will get the neighbors talking.

  34. LOL! Not only would my husband have bought that gourd too, he would have come home with it belted to his pants in an inappropriate fashion.

    But yeah… I totally thought maracas *shifty eyes*

  35. Everyone has to be something……. :)

    LOVE it!!

  37. The Gray Gang says:
