Ding Dong

My kids crack me up! Here’s a video I ran across today of Jordan. He made it sometime in the last couple weeks when he jumped onto the Mac. Nice way to remember the little guy’s sense of humor on his birthday. There’s a little story behind it.

Our church’s AWANA program is run at the local middle school. The kids are bussed there each Wednesday night and Jordan has a love-hate relationship with the bus. It’s too loud and he doesn’t usually have anyone to sit with – I guess it mostly just stinks.

Our friend, Kim Johnson, brings the only redemption to the bus ride for Jordan – she insists on quiet. Well, last week she suggested they play the ‘quiet game’ where being quiet the longest is the way to win the game. Every now and then you get a kid who is ‘above this’. One of these kids is a kid named Ethan. Ethan was much more content to make noise and draw attention to himself than play by the rules. So what’s Jordan do? Stands up on the moving bus, turns around, and yells to Ethan, “You’re a ding dong, Ethan!” Since then, this ‘ding dong’ thing has brought a chuckle from a number of us…

    Heh! Heh! That is funny! Is that a Mac program that created that look? Or a particular program? It’s very cool!

    Thanks, Nancy! It is a Mac program that does that distortion. I would imagine there are others out there like it, but I don’t know where. I first saw it on a friend’s blog almost a year ago and hers is from a Mac as well. The kids will play on PhotoBooth for hours!

    I like your blog!

    Okay, I kind of thought it might be a Mac. I’ll have to have Sereina look into our video program and see what options it has. I love stuff like that.

    Thanks on the blog…
