Remembering Thievery

This morning I read this post from MckMama, and she used the word thievery. It made me chuckle...because it reminded me of an entry I had written last year...

Original post date: May 17, 2009

As we were driving home from church this morning, I looked down between my seat and Josh's seat and noticed the pretty artwork the kids had made during Sunday school. I picked it up, and then noticed a small box of Casey's donuts underneath the papers.

"Oh! Where did you get these?!" I said with joy in my voice. I didn't really care since I love Casey's donuts - some of you may recall my status on facebook during pregnancy that begged someone to bring me some?? :o)

"Well, when I went to get Caleb from children's church, I noticed they were still in the break room from breakfast. Since no one picked them up, I thought I'd bring a few home."

So jokingly I responded, "You mean you stole them?"

"Nope. There was no thievery involved!"

I busted out laughing. "THIEVERY? That's not a word!"

"Yes it is!"

We bantered back and forth like this for a while, my laughter I could hardly contain. Every time he would say it, I would just chuckle.

But of course, with the power of the internet, I quickly learned that thievery is, in fact, a real word. I think it's because it sounded so much like strategery (a made-up word from a Will Ferrell SNL skit) that I honestly thought it was just something Josh made up on the spot! Josh, of course, has been beaming about it all. It's still pretty comical around here...

"So you were a thieverist, then?" I said to him. We both got a good laugh out of that one.

Now, if I could just solve a math problem that Josh couldn't solve...maybe we'd be even.

Scott, I think you have redundancy issues. It is not very often that I am right so I'm glad she blogged about it!

HA HA!! I think you just inspired a blog post for me. This reminds me of a time that my husband told my that a cat's whiskers help him balance. I thought that it was hysterical and laughed really hard for a really long time...until we looked it up on the internet! LOL
