This blog is not for the light-hearted or easily offended. If either one of those descriptions applies to you, i would suggest you start drinking before you read this blog. A sense of humor is suggested. If you don't have one that sucks for you … find one and get a life!
Yesterday an old friend from college dropped by. Somewhere in the course of the conversation we started discussing a mutual friend. Mostly what we discussed was that no matter how many things were going well in this friend’s life, they were always unhappy about something.
I pointed out that everyone has someone like this, an “Eeyore” in his or her life. She looked at me and said, “I think you’re right” (NOTE TO READER: DUH! OF COURSE I’M RIGHT!!!)
“Yeah,” I continued “ and it doesn’t even make any sense because Eeyore is hanging out in the Hundred Acre Wood with all his good friends. I mean, even WHEN he loses his tail somebody always finds it.” (Good point right???)
Fast forward to last night and Keely and I were driving to get a frozen yogurt.
Keely: you know, I was listening to your conversation yesterday
Me: which one?
Keely: about “everyone having an Eeyore in their life”
Me: it’s totally true. My mother was an Eeyore
Keely: not that part
Me: which part?
Keely: the part about hanging out with that gang in the Hundred Acre Wood
Me: what about it?
Keely: I think those guys would drive me nuts
Me: how so?
Keely: I mean, look at Owl and Rabbit
Keely: I would rather hang out with a stupid person that people who think they’re smart but they aren’t
Me: that’s true …
Keely: and Tigger?
Me: Tigger is awesome
Keely: I think I’d have to be wasted to hang out with Tigger
Me: Tigger would be so much fun to party with though
Keely: but not if you’re sober. He’d drive you nuts
Me: that’s a good point. He’s a bit hyper
Me: … and Pooh is always getting into jams
Keely: you mean honey?
Keely: Pooh is always getting into honey!
Me: hahaha….right. He’s always getting into jams getting into honey
Keely: I made a great joke!
Me: I mean, first he gets stuck in Gophers hole
Keely: … and then he got stuck in the Honey Tree
Me: well, he is a bear of very little brain
Keely: … and Piglet’s so damn timid
Me: yeah, he’s looking down
Keely: so ya see? I don’t know how much fun it would be in the Hundred Acre Wood with those guys.
Me: … and Christopher Robin is probably quite annoying ya know?
Keely: so I don’t think it would be so much fun
Me: except for partying with Tigger
Keely: do you realize that we just spent a 10 minute drive discussing which characters in the Winnie the Pooh World we’d want to be friends and hang out with?
Me: wow. That’s impressive
Keely: yeah, what does that say about us?
Me: that our life is fucking awesome.
And so it does. What do you guys talk about with your 22 year old kids???
