Wow everyone, yesterdays blog received 521 unique visitors (not counting spammers or repeat visitors from the same IP address), 34 blog comments, 47 twitter comments, 79 facebook comments, and more than 100 total likes! When we consider that every visitor retold the story to their family, friends, and coworkers, we can assume that upwards of 2000 people were positively impacted with that story.
Here are a few of the funniest comments:
Before I actually posted the blog, I tweeted the situation: “Been up since 3:18am cleaning up after our sick dog. (yawn)”
Emily Soffel: Aww man that stinks. 🙁 🙁
My reply to Emily: Stinks? Excellent word choice Emily Soffel. I’m going to blog about it… but for now I will just say that she had an ACCIDENT in my FACE. A terrible terrible accident. :,(
Emily Soffel: ew. ew. ew. ew. ew. I think stinks is the understatement of the year then…but I’m positive this will be an excellent blog. Ha, I’ll pray God gives you extra strength today and maybe a couple extra showers.
After the blog was posted, here is what some people wrote:
Maria Graniello: OMG!!! I was Laughing so hard I was crying… I shared it with my gf who also has a pug.. we were hysterical! I hope your pug is feeling better… (for your sake )
Sandra Powell: Laughter is the best medicine…and I think I have laughed harder in the last few minutes than I have in months!!!!!
Emily Gigliotti: O gosh.. Im at work and this made me laugh so hard. (sorry it was at your expense. lol) 🙂 but if I get in trouble for laughing this loud, I blame you. hahaha
Kim Zahren: holy crap!
Kelly Satterley: Maybe your dog is a JETS fan and getting you back for all the mean things you said to me! Lol
My reply to Kelly: Haha Kelly!! Funny assumption, but absolutely not the case in this situation. Your information is merely coincidental! lol
Alan Rexrode: only good thing i can say Chuck is at least you didnt have my 100# dog…
Alan Rexrode: or better yet least your pug isnt an elephant…
Jen Linebrink Jones: So sorry, that happend to you. Also sorry that I laughed so hard :-). Hope your dogs (and your shower) are doing better.
Kelly Crawford: I just had to go back and reread your blog. I have been laughing all day…..I’m sorry that this had to happen to you and I really hope Ming Me is feeling better, but this by far has to be one of the funniest things I have read in a long time.
Lori Crites Miller: I really needed a laugh this evening! Thank you! I’m so glad that you handled this as me I would have made my hubby clean up the mess! Get well wishes to Ming Me . Have a great evening!! Love it!
Lester Townsend: Chuck that is the funniest story I have ever read! You know this will be re-posted over and over dont you. It will bring tears of laughter to all who read!
Walt Davenport: Dude, you are the funniest pastor i have every run into…I have laughed at your post so hard my side is hurting…
Melissa Taylor: I read your blog to my kids in the car this evening and we all were dying laughing. It was not funny that it happened it was the way you wrote it and me imagining that I would have had the exact same response as your wife right down to the why are you talking to me while I am sleeping. Thanks for the laugh at your expense today.
Lindsi Hedrick: Chuck I loved your blog! i laughed to where i almost peed my pants! (: love you and your family!
Richard Holmes: I just laughed until I cried!
Parks Dekle: Just read your blog and laughed out loud and woke up my Mom down the hall!!! Haha. Hope that smell goes away soon Chuck!
Ming Me says thank you all for the prayers and concern. She is feeling so much better, just a little remorseful about her actions towards me. I think she is embarrassed that I told the whole world about her “accident!” lol
Honestly, I had no idea about how many laughs that message was going to generate. I thank God for turning my miserable situation into so much JOY for this tribe! Wow, that was fun. Haha!
I suppose I should write more about my everyday life. It seems that most people relate best when I hold nothing back! (smile)
Tomorrow, I’ll try to write something spiritual. For today, lets just laugh one more time and spend the rest of this day smiling!
Seriously, I had one of the best prayer sessions of my life this morning and I prayed very passionately for you guys! I hope you feel the difference all day long.
With much love,
Dream Big, Live Bold, and Make the Difference!
