Short Funnies

There was a couple funny things that happened yesterday. First, Stephanie and I were sitting outside in the driveway. Stephanie was reading a book and I was cold and getting bored. Anyway, WAY across the street, over in the new housing development the neighbor lady and her kids were over there. She was talking to another girl that lives somewhere around here. Not sure how, but we could hear her talking. I guess the sound bounced off the houses just right. She was asking the girl where she lived and stuff. The neighbor said she doesn't know very many people around here. Then she said, "My neighbors don't even talk to me." That was pretty funny. I know she thought we couldn't hear her. But she was wrong. It's not like we avoid her. We've talked to her. What are we supposed to do, go knock on her door and ask if she wants to talk? Maybe we should.

At church last night I kept hearing this noise during prayer meeting. It sounded like somebody was grunting or groaning or moaning. Something like that. I couldn't figure out what it was. Then a few rows in front of us I saw a lady nudge her husband with her elbow. He was snoring. HA!

Girl's twin found inside her stomach

Nine-year-old girl admitted to hospital after suffering from stomach pains

ATHENS, Greece (AP) -- A nine-year-old girl who went to hospital suffering from stomach pains was found to be carrying her embryonic twin, doctors in central Greece said Thursday.

Doctors at Larissa General Hospital examined the girl and surgically removed a growth they later discovered was an embryo about six centimeters (more than two inches) long.

"They could see on the right side that her belly was swollen, but they couldn't suspect that this tumor would hide an embryo," hospital director Iakovos Brouskelis said.

The girl has made a full recovery, he said.

Andreas Markou, head of the hospital's pediatric department, said the embryo was a formed fetus with a head, hair and eyes, but no brain or umbilical cord.

Markou said cases where one of a set of twins absorbs the other in the womb occur in one of 500,000 live births.

The girl's family did not want to be identified, hospital officials said.
