I bet you didn't know, but I can be kind of the sentimental type every once in a while. I can while away hours looking at old photos or reading old journey entries. Tonight, I was looking at some old texts, and I realized I have some seriously silly conversation with my friends. I thought maybe I'd share a couple of them. So, without any further adieu, may I humbly present: A Conversation With... XXXXX. What, you didn't think I'd actually use names, did you?
This first conversation I had over the course of a couple of days over text with my best friend a couple weeks back.... (Note: I'mma leave the spelling and punctuation uncorrected for the sake of authenticity.)
Me: Baked cupcakes today. Wish they were healthy so I could give you one.
Her: Wat kind?
Her: Wat kind?
Me: Blueberry - key lime. And pineapple - bacon - jalapeno.
Her: Ewwwww wat is that like
Me: The bacon one turned out the best but neither one was perfect. But they turned out pretty good for my first batch.
Me: The lime ones needed more lime flavor and I was bummed the blueberries sank to the bottom.
Her: What made u want to make them?
Me: Felt like a new way to be creative. Which I need right now.
Her: Bacon I like I had some Saturday
Me: I had some bacon pineapple jalapeno pizza a couple weeks back and it was delicious. So I wanted to try that in a cupcake.
Me: For some reason.
Her: I had some bacon with cream cheese kinda similar
Her: Maybe it was going around like a virus.
Her: A bacon virus.
Me: Maybe. I ate bacon cream cheese on my bagel this morning.
Her: Im sorry to inform u, We have a bacon virus, that causes odd cravings, and secondly I'm sorry to inform u we r cannibals
Her: (sad emoticon)
Me: Oh shit balls.
Her: (disturbed emoticon)
Me: Is there a cure?
Her: Vegetables and spinach
Her: And kissing the left eye of a goose
Me: Great. I've tried to catch a goose 3 or 4 times before and was unsuccessful. Geese are crafty and sneaky.
Isn't that fun? I love this kind of silly, off-the-wall banter with friends. This next one took place over text between my buddy C (the Entertainment Impresario of the Upper Valley) just tonight. It made me laugh. Hopefully it makes you chuckle a bit, too.
Me: I just watched the guy from Counting Cars fix the guitarist from Five Finger Death Punch's motorbike.
C: I've never see Counting Cars but I'd watch that episode
Me: It's not art but it's kind of a fun show.
Me: Definitely not as fun as Adam D on Price is Right.
C: I'm not a big car guy so those kinda show usually go unnoticed for me. I stopped watching Price when Barker left but I'd watch more if they did full metal episodes.
Me: I'd watch if Dave Grohl was the host.
C: The Price is Metal hosted by Grohl. I'm in.
Me: He'll yeah. This needs to happen.
C: We'd have to tell em all they're getting a Grammy or something in order to get em in the same room. And then lock the doors and spring it on em.
Me: Good plan. We can feed em beer and Easy Cheese.
C: They could probably live on just those for at least a month
Me: I know.
This was kinda fun. This may become a semi-regular feature!
