Heads are gonna roll.....

Today we attended our First Aid/CPR class and a funny thing happened.

You have to know that D and I have an off and rather odd sense of humor. We laugh (and sometimes say) at the most inappropriate things. OK, back to the class.....we practiced CPR on both the adult model and infant model. When we got to the infant model, Duane was into about 10 compressions and the head literally popped off and took flight, yes folks it was a projectile head. It was REALLY funny - especially because the child's mouth is open for the 2 breaths you administer after the 15 compressions. Can you imagine it - it was hilarious. A fake baby head with its mouth wide open making a shocked expression, flying across the room?

Our classmates happen to work at a daycare center and did not find this funny which for some reason made us laugh even louder and then I just couldn't stop. They were probably thinking " Oh Dear God.... Please don't give these people any children".

The whole event reminded me of my co-worker Lamont who mentions the phrase "Heads are Gonna Roll" whenever the shit hits the fan at work. I look forward to telling him how a head rolled, actually, took flight this weekend.

Seriously. Funny. Stuff.

OMG! I would have been on the floor rolling if that happened to us! And I could totally see my Hubby making the appropriate "sound effects" too!

I so would have almost peed my pants! I would have laughed even harder at the stupid day care people too. Where is their sense of humor? Its not like you popped the head off of a real kid. Some people just can't stand it when they aren't the ones having fun.

I find that pretty damn funny and wasn't even there! If I was there I probably would have laughed so hard I would have snorted.

Oh, dude. That is too terribly funny. I gotta love the comic timing of the universe. Too bad the poopy people in your class didn't get it!

That is hilarious!

At our baby basics class, my husband was trying to swaddle his doll and banged its head on the table. We both laughed out loud. Then later as the instructor was demonstrating different ways to hold a baby, he put it up near his nipple and made a suckling sound. Again we lost it. The instructor saw us too and couldn't help herself. Good times!

tee-hee. at my foster care cpr training, the instructor used the word "mouthole" which for some reason struck me as TOTALLY FUNNY. Anytime I thought about it, I LOST IT. Like people in my class were asking me if I was OK and I had to leave the room a couple of times.

Must be something about the CPR class.

This is an AWESOME story. I cannot believe no one else in your class laughed. What's wrong with them? Sheesh. I keep picturing that head popping off and flying across the room and it makes me giggle every single time. I guess this goes to show I am 12.

Thanks Guys - I'm still finding myself giggling, days later about this. It's the little- funny moments in life, that get me through all of the drama.
