Make Mine a Fazel Hut with Extra Hazel Fat, Please

Fazel Huts

Fazel Huts are things that make you laugh out loud.

We all know laughter is the best medicine. A good chuckle is a wonderful way to lighten things up. It is especially nice when we can laugh at ourselves.

This is where I will share things that crack me up, tickle my funny bone, and gives me the giggles.

What are Fazel Huts, you want to know? Well, let me tell you! One day my husband, son, and I were up extra early to take my other son to a lacrosse tournament. After an hour drive at day break we dropped him off and then we went through McDonalds to get a bite and some much needed coffee.

I asked my hubby to get me a non-fat hazelnut latte. He said sure and repeated it, “non-fat hazelnut latte.”

When he gave the order he said, “a hazel fat latte please” which totally cracked us up. It took him a few times before he got it right and he was a little embarrassed.

My son and I were quiet until we drove off. Then I said, “Hazel fat latte? What”s that?”

My husband began laughing so hard he could barely see to drive! All three of us got the giggles. We said it wrong trying to repeat the story. I couldn’t get it right when I read it back after posting the quip on Facebook. It finally evolved to Fazel Hut.

A Fazel Hut Latte is now what my drink is called in my family. It’s one of those “you had to be there” kind of stories, I know. But you get the idea!

For now on, things that make me laugh until I cry and that make my family laugh out loud will be known to me as Fazel Huts. And I hope to share them with you, too!

Do you have a funny story? What cracks you up?


A Year With Myself, Everything Miz Meliz


Life should be fun, right?  I totally think so!  I wish everything was fun.  Or, even more fun!  We love to laugh in our family.  I am grateful for all the different kinds of laughter.  I love when people have “laugh-lines” instead of wrinkles.  I love when people laugh at my jokes or think I am funny.  I love to tickle little kids.  I still try to tickle mine.  I love smiles and snickers, giggles, and guffaws.  Welcome to my very own “Fun Zone”!  Tell me, what makes you laugh?

Here are my favorite laughs:

  • I know a kid who loves babies and kittens.  He’s a pretty tough guy most of the time, but has a soft spot for cute adorable little things.  There is this sound that he makes when he sees something that strikes a chord. . . a high-pitched whiny “Ohhaawwhh!”  Followed by a an airy gutteral half-laugh as if in utter disbelief that anything could be so cute.


  • This one is a crack-up to witness and then hilarious when you join in.  It’s that uncontrollable contagious giggle-snort-laugh that you just can’t stop and at first think it’s annoying until you get it too and everything seems funny and you just keep laughing and laughing until your eyes water and you think you might have just peed in your pants!!!!


  • The head-shake/nervous laugh combo.  AKA the “tell.”  When I want to know what happened and I say something totally funny and I get this reaction, I know they either don’t get the joke or they are up to something.   I don’t want to give away my secrets, but I can read this one like a book!


  • The sigh giggle that girls make when they are in love.  It starts with a deep breath and then a light “hahhhh. . . . hee hee hee.  They most likely are thinking about something he said or did.  Ah, young love.  Butterflies.  Hearts and roses.


  • The histerical outburst laugh that is made when you are reading something funny.  I’ll hear this once in awhile from my kids when they are playing a video game or using head phones, too.  It’s that loud. . . “HA!” followed by, “Oh my God!”  Ha ha ha ha ahhh ha ha!! Chuckle chuckle. . . trails off and then another “Ha!”


  • The laugh so hard you scare yourself gut-busting laugh.  This is the one that can actually wear you out if you keep it up long enough.  I went to a comedy club when I was pregnant once and the comedian was so funny, I laughed so hard I thought I was going to hurt the baby!  Comedy shows and movies are always on at my house and laughter is going on all the time.  I just love it!!
