Funniest F***king Thing I Heard All Day: MacGyver

Lydia was hanging out with a bunch of mommies and kids in her neighborhood.  One of the kids broke his brand new pair of glasses.  He came over to the mommies looking upset and worried.  My neighbor and friend Mimi (the Phillippina Queena) asked to see the glasses and then sent her kids running to fetch thread, a paperclip and superglue from her house. 

She looked at the little boy and said "Don't worry, I can fix this." And then she fixed them good as new in true MacGyver fashion in about three minutes. 

We were all very impressed.  One of the other moms remarked: "Mimi! You are so crafty!"

She raised one eyebrow sardonically and said: "Woman, I'm from a third world country.  We call it being resourceful."

The End.

  1. And she's not kidding either, I've lived in the Philippines too!

  2. Love it.. I totally fixed a co-workers glasses with a paperclip once and they still work better than her pair that has never been broken

  3. I've gone to Manila twice, to help with a church-sponsored preschool program in the slums. I really do love the teachers, children and families there. They are awesome and, I can vouch, super resourceful! They outfit their classrooms with all sorts of teaching tools that you and I would normally just throw away. Yet, the kids there are benefiting greatly from this kind of resourcefulness. Awesome! Good job, Mimi! I'm hoping to go back next spring to help out a little more.

  4. Sigh...I heart MacGuyver...
