24: The Lost Season

The following takes place between 4:00 and 5:00 PM

Her: Go! Go! Go!! We must get to the diaper quickly or else we will have a poop explosion.
Me: Where's Jack Bauer when you need him? You take the baby. I'll clear the nursery and cover you. Stay low.
Her: Oh, this diaper's a full one. Scramble the choppers and get Jack to fly this out over the desert and detonate it.
Me: I can contact Tony at CTU but we might just have to handle this on our own. I can, uh, scramble the Jetta or something.

Happy Friday everyone! I? Am working from home. Don't worry, yesterday's winner will be announced soon!

:) What a fascinating life you lead, Mr. Cactus! Fascinating indeed!

Too funny!

But your daughter can't be even a fraction as annoying as Jack's daughter, Kim, is. Mia is entertaining. Kim is not. You're the lucky one!

Yes...Friday! :::doing my friday dance::: It sounds like Mia already did her friday dance. I remember those days of early morning poop bombs. I look forward to returning the favor when I'm old and out of control. :)

I've never actually watched 24, but I can still appreciate a good parody of it.

I'd bet that Mia is a better actress than Elisha Cuthbert too!

Have fun working from home, I wish I could, then I could still be in bed. Have a great weekend.

But I'm afraid Tony won't be of much help. He's barely living!

Well I've never actually watched 24 but from what i heard thats more exciting than the whole damn show!!! kinda sounds like my house with main objective being not letting the poop escape!!! but when you cloth diaper there is a hardly any chance it will!

IF you are only now beginning to experience diaper explosions you are truly blessed. V.J. is the diaper explosion champion, having successfully exploded untold numbers of diapers, several reaching as far as his armpits and a couple hitting close to the back of his neck. The secret is in how you go about peeling the onesie and other polluted clothing from baby's body without further spreading the poopiness.

Oh man ... where's a diaper genie when you need one?

Darnit! I missed the contest. Oh well. I'll tell the internet a horrifying personal secret another time...

Posted by: Ginny at January 27, 2006 10:29 AM

Sounds like a tactical maneuver.

Have fun at home, Chris!

Dont let the terroist get a hold of that bomb, we might have a nuclear meltdown!

Damn it. I missed the contest. And oh, what I could have told you. Man oh man. Talk about jaw-dropping.

Oh well!

Happy Friday to you too. I couldn't play along yesterday...too much pressure. I tell ya I was trying to think of something all day. I'm just not interesting. :) Have a lovely weekend.

So what was my mom's big secret? You can tell me ;)

Posted by: JuJuBee at January 27, 2006 2:31 PM

Is this something that went over my head? Because I don't watch Lost?! Discrimination!
Tell JuJu I chickened out...
