Best Conversation Ever

Todd and I spent the week in Vermont for Thanksgiving. It takes just over 4 hours to drive there, and it’s always nice to have all that time in the car together on those trips. We talk about life, politics, our families, our friends, our childhoods and everything else. This afternoon on the way back to Rhode Island we had one of the deeper and more meaningful conversations we’ve had in a long time.

Todd: I wonder who was the first person to ever dress as a clown.

Beej: (Distracted from the conversation with driving) What?

Todd: There had to be a first person to ever dress as a clown, right? There must have been a time when someone dressed as a clown for the first time.

Beej: (Intrigued) Um-hmm.

Todd: So the first person to dress as a clown really was just dressed like a jack-ass. He got all dressed up, went to a party and his friends were like ‘What the hell? Dude, why are you wearing size 40 shoes?’

Beej: And then they’d talk about him later ‘OK, what was up with that? Why did he keep honking that horn?’

Todd: And then before they knew it, there were clowns everywhere.

Beej: Yeah, that’s a trend that the world really didn’t need, huh?

LOL That was great!! It's funny what things pop in your head sometimes.

My favorite is where do belly buttons go? They have to lead somewhere don't they??

I always wonder about the first person to eat a crab. Who thought that would be a good idea? A really hungry person, that's who. And what a reward for such intrepid scavenging! Mmm... crab.

Augs, Todd originally from VT, we were with my in-laws for Thanksgiving.

The chocolatier is down the road from us here in RI. (Best chocolate gift baskets ever, BTW.)

Chocolate Dave! I drool every time I think of Chocolate Dave.

*laughing at the clowns* In some ways Todd himself is a clown. ;)

Sue, I'll tell him you said that.

There is a box from Chocolate Delicacy on my counter right now filled with chocolate covered cherries. I don't care for the cherries, and I already ate whatever Todd brought back for me (b/c that's how I roll).

Words cannot express the torture of Chocolate Delicacy's trademark red box on the counter filled with things I don't like.
