I can’t believe I am actually going to blog this but it is too funny not to share. Plus as of right this moment I am waving the pregnancy flag.
I have been hooked on Words With Friends for a few weeks now. It has been known to keep me up late many nights thanks to Cheryl and I having unplanned dates while lying in bed every night with our iPads and iPhones. Today Tobei finally decided to get on the Words With Friends train and him and I sat on the couch playing against each other.
I was kicking his butt big time and I had just played the word Moil for 16 points. Tobei looks up from his iPad and says “WTF kind of word is moil?”. I told him it was a word worth 16 points. Being the smarty pants that he is he goes “Ya well use it in a sentence”. Without skipping a beat I replied “I just played moil for 16 points”. HA! Take that, I used it in a sentence. He gave me a high five for my wicked use of moil in a sentence and then neither of us could stop laughing. It all ended with Tobei actually falling on the ground from being unable to compose himself. I look at him and yell “Oh my god, not funny, I am pregnant and so going to pee my pants”. No sooner did I finish that sentence, I peed myself. I totally am playing the pregnancy card and blaming little brother for that one.
Oh and for those of you wondering from Merriam-Webster Online.

2: to be in continuous agitation : churn, swirl
“Why should he toil and moil … when … the strong arm of his Uncle will raise and support him?” (Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter)
