Rats! It’s a Giant Pez Dispenser
Wouldn’t it be cool if I could write a blog that consisted entirely of other blogs? I could produce a sort-of infinite loop of bloggers. I was thinking about this and so I started writing down titles of blogs I’ve come across to keep for my future fun blog. The entire text will consist of nothing but titles from other blogs. That and maybe a few conjunctions thrown in for fun. I mean, how could we live without a good conjunction, right? I think the only part of speech I can live without is an exclamation but could you imagine what life would be like if we took the “Rats!” out of Charlie Brown? Sure we could live but it wouldn’t be much fun.
Speaking of Charlie Brown, the other day I went shopping for a small gift for the inevitable gift exchange when I happened upon this giant, talking Charlie Brown Pez dispenser. Thinking at the time that this was “way cool” and was just a purchase without which I could not live, I grabbed Mr. Pez and headed for the door. So, I’m waiting in line to pay for Sir Chuck when I happen to notice this really great looking guy in front of me. I’m checking him out and thinking, “hey, he’s kinda cute” just as he moves up to the register. I happen to notice that he’s buying all sorts of chi chi stuff like, quite literally, caverne sovigernoine (sp?) and herbal tea. Suddenly feeling rather self conscious, I try to hide the giant Pez dispense and try to strike up a conversation with Mr. Hot Buns. But, what exactly do you say in a situation like this. “Mmmm. That’s a good year,” just doesn’t have quite the same impact when you’re holding a giant Pez.
And then, to make matters worse, Mr. Cutie Pie takes his purchases, moves up a bit, and stops in front of me. So I shyly place Sir Chuck on the counter, hoping that Mr. Hottie just won’t notice, when the clerk grabs the big honking Pez boy, holds it highly up in the air, and exclaims, “Oh Wow! These are so cool, aren’t they?” completely ruining any remaining glimmer of hope I had with Mr. Hot Stuff. Sigh. I guess I’m just destined to be single forever. I suppose it would have never worked out anyway. I mean, truth be told, it wasn’t a very good year and sometimes I’d rather have pizza and bear instead of a well-aged mellow red.
Pez for your thoughts?
