I purposely went with a Favorites Spin Cycle this week since a lot of families are on Spring Break and sometimes you just need a blog break, so why not select an oldie but goodie and entertain your readers while making it easy on yourself?
Only, when it comes to picking out your own favorite, it's damn hard. I spent an hour last night combing through categories, trying to spark a memory of a good post. It turns out I have a lot of crap in here, I may even delete some of them. (Did you know I ramble?) (Did you know I abuse parentheses?) (Did you know I sometimes bend words into almost impossible positions just because I think it's clever?) (It's very scary in my mind.)
So, I finally found a conversation that happened between John and me over a year ago. It involved a martini, zebras, and pyres.
This is why I don't drink.
"What are you going to have?"
"I think I'll have a pear martini."
"What? You? Drinking?"
"Meh. It's on special. I won't feel too guilty if I leave it alone for the most part."
"We need to go out alone more often."
"What about you?"
"Michelob? Since when do you drink Michelob?"
"Ask me again in about two minutes."
"What are you staring at?"
"Those pyres up on top of the walls."
"You mean the fake bowls of flames?"
"They're called pyres."
"Why are you staring at them?"
"I don't know."
"You didn't have them top off your drink while I was gone, did you?"
"This is so good."
"Yes, but bad too."
"Not too bad. It's veggies. We ordered the healthiest appetizer on the menu."
"Dipped in beer batter and fried to within a inch of it's vitamins."
"That's not how I'll remember it."
"I could never be a doctor."
"What are you talking about? You'd make a kick ass doctor."
"Yeah, but I don't want to know too much about the way the body works."
"I don't get it."
"I'm the same way with the world and life. I'd rather just be ignorant."
"I don't like being faced with my own mortality."
"It's like watching a nature show."
"You don't like nature shows."
"Exactly. I don't like seeing the food chain at work. I watch a lion chase and kill a zebra and I think, 'that zebra died. It's dead. No more zebra.' I just can't handle that."
"You're making no sense right now."
"This is why I don't drink."
"Are we alone in the universe?"
"Yes and no."
"No, Jen, you can only pick one answer. Yes or no."
"No, that's a trick question."
"Physically, I don't think we're alone in the universe. Emotionally, I think we are completely alone."
"Wow, that was deep."
"I think I need to stop drinking now."
Can't pick a favorite? Then pick them all!
