Humorist Dean Mesnard

Primrose resident and humorist Dean Mesnard

Decatur, IL, Senior Living

Dad: Dean Mesnard
Daughter: Karen Mesnard

Dad: I’m going to tell you this…it really scared me…I thought, I don’t want to tell anyone because then I would have to go to the doctor or the hospital, and probably have to have surgery and I don’t want to go to the hospital.

Daughter: What are you talking about, Dad?

Dad: Well the other day, I was sitting in my chair, and I looked down and noticed that something was coming out of my belly button…I thought…that’s not good. I was afraid my insides were coming out. So I thought well I’m not going to tell anyone because they would take me to the hospital…so I thought I will just push it back in and maybe it will get better…so I pushed it back in!

Daughter: So what happened then?

Dad: It popped right back out…and it really scared me. I just knew I was in trouble.

Daughter: So did you tell anyone?

Dad: No I just kept pushing it back in and POP it would come back out. Do you know what it was?

Daughter: No Dad, what was it?

Dad: A mini marshmallow…I guess when I was eating them I dropped one and it got stuck in my belly button. (GRINNING)

Daughter: (Laughing hysterically)

Dad: It’s not funny, I thought I was in BIG trouble!

Daughter: But, Dad…it IS funny…
