SNAP JUDGE­MENT

The other day, some­one asked me if I knew what self-ef­fac­ing meant.

Us­ing my smart­phone to demon­strate, I pointed out the cam­era and said, “Other peo­ple fac­ing…”

Then I turned it around and said, “Selfie-fac­ing.”

KNOW YOUR LIM­ITS

You think you’re pretty OK at do­ing stuff, then you try to plug some­thing into an out­let you’re not look­ing at di­rectly.

COM­EDY COMES IN THREES

My three-year-old grand­daugh­ter, Olivia, was play­ing with her two-

year-old cousin Nathan on the gravel pa­tio when I spot­ted them throw­ing stones. I called them both over and told them to stop.

“OK, Grandma,” they re­sponded be­fore scam­per­ing off.

About an hour later, I caught them throw­ing stones again. I took my grand­daugh­ter aside and asked, “How many times do I have to ask you to stop?”

She thought about that for a mo­ment be­fore re­spond­ing, “Three, Grandma.”

AF­TER YOU

I was stand­ing in a long lunch line with my hus­band when the guy in front of us looked down at my very preg­nant belly, smiled, and asked, “What are you hav­ing?”

My im­pa­tient hus­band replied, “A steak sand­wich.”
