    That’s so funny!

  2. This made me laugh out loud! I’ve had a rough (grief-filled) day and this was the perfect way to end it, on a high note. Thank you Colleen!

    • You’re welcome Carolin. I’m sorry it’s been a rough day. But so glad the humor got through it to make you laugh.

      My mom will be pleased she made someone laugh. 🙂

    Here’s what I say about Mom’s Mary, MBC. She two-upped M&M’s and one-upped 3M!

    lol! Good story, too. 🙂

    • 🙂 I know, still chuckling when I read it. I’ve had more people who never ‘write’ a comment, say things to me as I pass them in the hall, or send me texts about this one. 🙂

    I must wonder if she is Irish? *-) ❤

  11. That’s so funny. I’m laughing. 🙂

  12. Wow! Someone thought M’s were pretty awesome!

  13. I don’t know if this is imaginative or not, but it sure is hilarious. Someone must have love ‘M’ names or a lot of relative had M names and Mary was named after them. *scratches head*
    😀 😀 😀

    Love it! Easy to remember too, even when you forget and are trying to remember. “And her name is…mmmm.”

  16. Her name sounds like the beginning of nursery rhyme or song. Her parents must have had a sense of humor. 🙂

    Haha. There is a big tradition here for calling people their own name, plus their husband or wife plus their mothers or fathers. Your post reminded me of one from my childhood, his name was ‘Paddy, Mandy, Huey Fahy’. I thought it was Paddy, mandy, huedy faddy.

  20. I just reread this and it cracked me up, AGAIN!
