* Do you take commonplace or quirky phrases and CONSTANTLY turn them into names for imaginary rock bands, or names for something else?
My sister was talking about having to temporarily put her litter box on the warm front porch, and she said that she didn't want to smell the "hot stink" anymore.
And I say; "HOT STINK IS THE NAME OF YOUR JOAN JETT COVER BAND!"
I have no idea why Joan Jett came to mind.
* I'm putting a new bag in the organics bin (for my American friends who don't have to do this yet, this is a little bin into which you have to scrape all that nasty, smelly, leftover food, and all the veggies you bought but didn't eat, so they can be mulched and broken down easier than by doing the lazy douche thing, and scraping them directly into the garbage. The organics bin is the 4th layer of hell), and I suddenly detect a misplaced smell of "clean." Finally I realise that The Man bought new organics bags with "Odour Guard,"
And I say to him; "HEY! 'Odour Guard' is your VIKING NAME! SPELL IT!"
Finally we agree on this: "Odörgaard".
* Or, the time The Man was doing push ups, and thought he imagined his pecs moving too much, (they don't. He was being paranoid. He barely moves all day, and he's still magically fit) and I immediately piped up and said:
"HEY! What if you're Indian spiritual name is 'Johnny Manhoots'?!?"
And then I laughed till tears squirted out, and then it just turned into crying.
|mad skillz, clearly|
Finally, do you give your kids so many endearing, affectionate nicknames that they actually become TIRED OF YOU, and request you just call them by their GIVEN NAMES (how boring)?
Ella B (the B. stands for BABY, of course)
You do all that stuff too, right!? RIGHT?
