So, we watched “THEM!” again. The MiniNess saw it when we were at the library and begged to get it. And after the movie we were going through the “bonus” stuff on the disc, and we checked out this one section that talked about some of the “history” of bugs in movies.
At the end, she said, “Oh I wanna see ‘Eight Legged freaks’!”
”Do you even know what that’s about? What is it about?” I quizzed her 4 year old self.
”Well, spiders have eight legs, and they’re kind of freaks, and I think it’s about giant spiders who go around eating people!”
DingDingDingDing for the win! Baby girl has figured out the movie!
Did I ever tell you I’m an arachnophobe? Oh this is gonna be fun. *eyeroll*
Your Duck is Dead
(an oldie but a goodie)
A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird’s chest.
After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, "I’m sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away."
The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?"
"Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied the vet.
"How can you be so sure?" she protested. "I mean you haven’t done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something."
The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck’s owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head. The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room.
A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.
The vet looked at the woman and said, "I’m sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."
The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman.. The duck’s owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150!" she cried, "$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!"
The vet shrugged, "I’m sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it’s now $150."
So any plans for the weekend? I’m going to beta read a friend’s story. Whatever you do, have a great time!
Oh, anyone come across any good meme’s lately? I’m in the mood for a meme.
