Soaring Amongst The Clouds' "Isms"

We can all be sitting around the dinning table, eating and talking. Then all of a sudden, some one bursts out laughing. Of course, then we ALL want to know what's so funny. Well, most often than not, it's due to what we call Soaring Amongst The Clouds' "isms".

The dictionary says that "ism" is: A distinctive doctrine, system, or theory. That sort of describes it. Just so you get and idea of what I mean, I'll share some of our Soaring Amongst The Clouds' isms. On any given day, if you were a fly on the wall in our Castello, you might hear...

"Turn off the door and close the light." -She was camping out in Still Water's room. She wanted to get to sleep. We all know what she meant to say.

"I was verabaling what everyone is thinking." -She meant to say that she was verbalizing what everyone was thinking.

"She was a tick bomb." - it was regarding a woman on a commercial who said , "Hello" to a co-worker and the co-worker was upset and yelled back. She meant to say, she was a ticking time bomb.

"Did my tan get back?" - She was asking if her back got tanned. She had spent the day at the beach with her siblings and friends.

"We're going rivering"- She was talking about a camping trip she's going on. They were going go canoeing.

"When are the Marylou's leaving for their vacation?" -Marylou is a friend of ours. Her whole family was going to a family reunion (in another state) and their youngest was going to stay with us (for a week) because he is in the All-Star team with our youngest. Instead of saying their last name, she called the family by the mom's first name.

"I think next Thursday we are going to have a mosh pit" -Soaring Amongst The Clouds is part of the Disaster Relief. What she was suppose to say was, that they were going to have a "mock drill".

"Mom, Samuel's toe fell off!" -Samuel is a little boy we know from church. On Tuesday's, Soaring Amongst The Clouds and Daughter of the King help with God's Squad. It's a one day a week camp for K- 6th graders. Little Samuel had a heavy object fall on his foot one day at home, so his toe nail turned black and blue. What Soaring Amongst The Clouds meant to say was his "toe nail fell off."

"Boys if you are hungry, come get your eats!" -She had just finished baking pizza. What she meant to say was, "Boys if you are hungry, come eat!"

There are many more "isms". There is never a dull moment in our Castello. She keeps us laughing. She doesn't "mean" to say these things, they just roll right out. As she says them, her eyes just twinkle. Sometimes, right after she says them, she realizes, "Oops, that's not what I meant to say." But most of the times, she doesn't and then she laughs right along with us. She's got an AWESOME sense of humor.

"The person who can bring the spirit of laughter into a room is indeed blessed."
