conversations kill...

The title of this post is for music lovers/rememberers of the long forgotten decade.......the 90s.

Anyhoo....on to the conversations from this weekend.

1. No preface.

Rachel (my sister): That mirror is a dangerous thing.

Me: What?

Rachel: That mirror. It's a dangerous thing when you're beautiful.



2. Preface: Kevin and Rachel and I were driving around Wichita, very likely coming back to my mom's house from my grandparents house, and we were talking about the BTK serial killer that had been at large in Wichita and was recently caught. Kevin mentioned that he had been interviewed on TV (before being suspected as the killer) on behalf of some sort of animal organization - not sure about the details. Anybuns, this is what followed concerning what he might have mentioned during said interview:

Kevin: He probably started talking about handling squirrels in his day to day job life, and said something to the effect of "First I like to bind the squirrels up so they can't move much. Then I like to torture them by holding acorns in front of their faces but not allowing them to eat them OR store them away for the winter."

As I'm laughing aloud at my Special K's quick wit AND ability to channel the thoughts and feelings of small, darting animals, he replies...

Kevin: You'd think it was torture, too, if your instincts were to eat and bury.

I remember you saying that Rachel once said, "I'd rather eat lightbulbs." I'll never forget that. In fact, I've used it a couple hundred times...

He he he. He said that in an interview? Did they put it on TV or "discard" those comments?

ha ha ha! No, he didn't actually say that in an interview. :) But wouldn't it have been "funny" if he did?!

You don't think that's torture? You must not like nuts. I've had some pretty conversations myself. The most common convo I have with ppl is:
Someone (usually my sister): You're crazy.
Me: Yup! And I'm proud of it!
A funny convo we had in homegroup (at our dinner table) one night with the Etheridges...
Jimmy: talktalktalktalk what are you putting in that glass?!
Me: Uhhh... Green drink?
MOm: *some comment about me drinking green drink all the time*
Me: It's good! want some?
Jimmy: Uh, no thanks.
This completely random and crazy comment has been brought to you by Victoria. Don't like it? Don't read it! Bye! *goes off and drowns in schoolwork* Ah, the joys of entering high school...
