Marty's Joke of the Day

Marty's Joke of the day is an internet column that I've written for more than 5 years.
I tell humorous stories about my "sweet wife" and raising our 4 young sons, named #1, #2, #3, and #4.
After 5 years of story telling, in August of 2005, doctors found a brain tumor in son #4.
Our focus here has changed little as we still try to find humor in our lives.

Turkey Wrestling...

Tuesday, November 23, 2004

Turkey day is just 2 days away! (Or 1 day, depending on when you
read this...) I think Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love
to cook, I love to eat, I love having family around, and I love to
be grateful for the things I’ve been blessed with! (Ok, Christmas
is a close second, but it gets too wild and messy on Christmas
morning. But I do love the family Christmas traditions leading up
to Christmas a lot too!)

I woke up this morning and was really sore. I couldn’t figure out
why. My elbows were sore, my chin was sore and my back just ached.
After sitting at work for a couple of hours, I remembered why. I
worked out for about 45 minutes after work yesterday, and then Son
#1 came home and was feeling his oats. We wrestled on the hardwood
living room floor for another 45 minutes.

It’s more fun to wrestle them when they’re older. They don’t cry if
you bump a head or smash a finger a little. They just work harder
on you. So, they’re more of a challenge.

And, when I wrestle little ones like son #4, he’s still “stretchy”.
I can pin him on his back, put his knees on the floor next to his
ears, and he just laughs and laughs. With son #1 it takes a little
more effort then when he was little. I don’t worry though; I’m
still only going at it about 40%. That is, for now... But those
aches and pains...

Today’s Jokes are Thanksgiving related. I’ve dispelled a few
Thanksgiving urban legends at the end, so read on today!

Enjoy today’s Jokes!
