Try Using Your "Sexy" Voice....

The other day, my fiance, Chris, and I were talking and found ourselves in a rather animated discussion. As we were talking, expressing our thoughts and opinions, her voice became louder and more excited. She was not angry or upset with me, but she was just rather passionate about the subjet matter. So I asked her to repeat what she had just said, but only this time, to use her “sexy” voice. (She has a really nice one!)
We soon discovered that it is nearly impossible to maintain a certain level of intensity in an argument when you are trying to sound sexy.

Being the social creatures that we are, communication is important. A healthy relationship requires an open exchange of ideas and thoughts. However, how the other person perceives what we are trying to say is most often based on how we say it, rather than what words we use.

So, the next time you find your voice rising and your temperature increasing while conversing with your spouse, try using your “sexy” voice. You’ll be amazed at how quickly the conversation cools down and takes a positive turn.

If nothing else, you’ll both enjoy a good laugh from the experience.

The "Official" Alpha Dude Joke Book

Well, I put it off as long as I could (my mother once told me I would never amount to anything because I procrastinate, so I told her, "You just wait!"), but I finally finished and published my first book.

That's it right over there ------------>
If you are looking for a collection of good, clean jokes that you can openly tell in church (or anyplace else), then you've come to the right place.

I like to make people laugh, or at least smile.
I don’t care if people are laughing with me or at me. As long as they are laughing, that means they are experiencing at least the slightest bit of joy, even if only for a moment.
I know it isn’t my job to make people happy, but I try to at least make them feel good while I have the chance.

One thing I’ve learned since I was asked to be the Alpha Dude, is that people like to laugh. They also like to share their own bits of humor with me as well.

I’ve tried my best to only include the funny ones here.

I wrote them down as best as I could remember, so if you see something you've heard before, only different, that's why.

You can see the book and the preview, and even order yourself a copy or two or three hundred or so, if you so desire.
Just click on the book cover over there on the sidebar to the right.

I’d also like to extend my appreciation to my big brother, Rick, who established the “Scott Trammell Project” at our church to insure that I don’t tell any joke more than once, and that the ones I do share are actually funny. If, for some reason, I do not adhere to this criteria, I get punched in the arm. Hard. Rick has enlisted several rather large and strong fellows to assist in this effort. I have learned a lot through this experience, and lucky for me, I learn quickly.

So go ahead, sit back and enjoy the ride. If you like what you see here, share the joy. If you don’t, then please don’t tell Rick, I’m not sure I could survive the beating.

“The joy of the Lord is my Strength”.

Blessings to you.
