Get Behind Me Satan!!!

After my post on Wednesday last week, Claire's mom sent me the following joke:

The poor country pastor was livid when he confronted his wife with the receipt for a $250 dress she had bought.

"How could you do this!" he exclaimed.

"I don't know," she wailed, "I was standing in the store looking at the dress. Then I found myself trying it on.It was like the Devil was whispering to me, 'Gee, you look great in that dress. You should buy it.'"

"Well," the pastor persisted, "You know how to deal with him! Just tell him, "Get behind me, Satan!"

"I did," replied his wife, "but then he said 'It looks great from back here, too!'"
Did y'all see Phelps and the rest of the 4x200 free relay team last night? Broke the previous WR by 5 seconds...amazing.
Oh yea, Phelps set an earlier record in the 200 Butterfly with leaky goggles...they were full of water the last 50 meters and he was essentially swimming blind.
He is a a good way.
Women's Volleyball this morning had one of the best matches I have seen in a long time. If you are even a little bit of a Volleyball fan, you need to watch the replay of China v. Cuba...especially the 4th set.
Those women are crazy good!

Phelps.... that kid is insane. In a good way. I only wish I was that disciplined.

I think Phelps is bionic and we just don't know it yet. Whatever he is, he's pretty amazing. I took my boys swimming tonight, and they spent most of the time pretending to be him!

That's a funny joke. And how can you deny a dress that makes your ass look good? hahaha.

Phelps eats like 12,000 calories a day.

I think I could take him.

HAHAH Cute joke! My family and I have absolutely loved watching the olympics, the swimming and gymnastics in particular. I agree Phelps is freaky in a good way.

THANKS for the volleyball link! My husband is totally into volleyball and he'll be so excited to watch it.

And Phelps...if I could eat 10,000-15,000 calories each day and have a body like that, I might consider a life of eating, sleeping and swimming! Of course, my husband wouldn't come near me if I had his body, but I digress...
