I was just reading (in line at wal mart) that Kate, of Jon and Kate + 8 earns about $75,000 per episode. I don't even earn 75,000 a year, not even in two years. So I was thinking (even though I've never seen the show) our life has to be at least as interesting as theirs (maybe). We have a pretty good cast of characters and the things that happen to us on a regular basis would make for some pretty good comedy.
Me the, ditsy, always on the edge of losing it, can't remember anything, cusses like a sailor, Mom. (it'd probably have to be a cable show)
Dan, the neat freak, always in control, calm and collected, fun, good natured, goofy Dad.
Alyssa, extremely competitive, full of drama, know-it-all (sometimes).
Rebecca, sarcastic, witty, funny, quiet yet grumpy (sometimes).
Brianna, neat freak, non-stop talking, ditsy like her Mom (sometimes).
Add to that, that Dan will be unemployed as of July 17th. Softball will be kicking up a notch soon, where I'm sure my eldest will say something snotty to at least one ump. I am being tested for adult ADHD, Plus we have a steady flow of characters in and out of our house all summer long. Snipe, Booger, and Sea Monkey just to name a few.
But Wait there is more act now and I'll throw in footage of our wedding ceremony where I stop mid sentence because my mind totally blanks and I forgot what I was saying and have to ask the judge to repeat it. Plus the reenactment of Brianna winning a burping contest at church. So network execs don't hesitate call now and have the DeMeyers show airing by next season.
That's right The DeMeyers we put the D in Dysfunctional but we do it in a loving way.
Okay so I'm trying to be funny, but if funny doesn't work, Micheal Moore could always do a documentary on us, it could be called It sucks to live in Michigan. I have to admit I do like Micheal Moore's documentaries. I've heard some people say he is just trying to make trouble, but it seems to me he is just pointing out the trouble that is already there.
Thanks for stopping by, if you have read all of this post then I'm shocked. This has been one of my strangest ones yet, but this is the junk that is on my mind. I mean what does Kate Gosselin got that I don't got, besides 8 kids and a $75,000.00 an episode show.
