“Come On, Susan Lucci!”

Ok, so maybe you have no clue what the title of this piece even means. Maybe I watch way too much tv. Here’s the commercial clip so you can get a clear picture:


In case you aren’t a daytime soap fan, Susan Lucci (the actress in the red gown) was on the soap All My Children for many, many years. Now, this commercial isn’t particularly funny….but I have an odd sense of humor. It’s just so overly dramatic that it makes me chuckle every time I see it. (There are 2 other versions, too!)

Now, bear with me…..

Today, in the Walmart parking lot, I was trying to park the little battery operated scooter when I was finished with it and the dang thing kept stopping. The battery was fine. If you’ve ever used one, you may have come across one that doesn’t always like the way you’re sitting on it. It will stop if your weight isn’t just perfectly on the seat. It’s maddening. It really is. Especially when someone is right behind you and you’re trying to go, go, go….but the scooter just wants to stop, stop, stop!

Anyway, there I was, trying to park the scooter where it wouldn’t be run over by a car. It stopped. I got it to go again. Then it stopped again…. I yelled, “Come on!” and I started laughing my dang fool head off because I nearly finished that with “Susan Lucci!” Imagine the looks…even more than the looks I got because I was laughing my head off.

So, there ya go! There’s never a dull moment!

  1. Haha! Yeah, that’s how dramatic soaps used to be back in the day. They were much more formal back then. As to the scooter, you mean to tell me none of the people passing you by was laughing with you in your frustration to get the scooter to go, go, go? lol I would have laughed with you. Then again, once I start laughing, sometimes I can’t stop. lol At that point, I don’t think even you’d want to be seen with me. lol

    • I’m the same way when I get to laughing about something! One time, My daughter and I were in Walmart and we saw a little girls’ underwear display and the sign to the side had a photo of Garth Brooks on it. I think it was an advertisement for his latest album. It’s been quite a few years…but we just thought it was hilarious to imagine Garth Brooks wearing little girls’ underwear!! We were laughing until tears were rolling down our cheeks. People must have thought we were on something. It still cracks us up when we talk about it. Lol. And no, I didn’t see anyone laughing at me trying to get the scooter to go. In the store though, I think they just get irritated and think I’m doing it on purpose or maybe I don’t know how to drive it. Lol.
