    It’s true, Joce.

    Everybody is somebody’s weirdo. 🙂

    I wonder if they also made up an amusing and well-phrased story about the purple-faced one as you pounded past them. But perhaps they don’t have blogs to consider. Only we who do, know what we suffer in the pursuance of our art.

    I consider your efforts to postpone fly expulsion to have been heroic. Any mere mortal would have spluttered and choked and puked there and then.

  3. Gads, I needed that howling, laughter (which launched my tea out my nose) today! I think the video of “HAWWWWWWWKHEEEEECKHEEEEEEKPATUUUUI!” should be shared with your classes.

    Ah, yes. There was the time that my friends and I, after an evening of heavy partying, went to the Embers at 26th & Hennepin to view the weirdos who populate its booths at 2 am on an early Saturday morning. Lo and behold, WE were said weirdos.

    I hope that the bug which was sacrificed for the purposes of this blog post was able to realize that its loss of life was not in vain. This is a great post! It reminds me of the fact that I never realize how tall I am until I see a photo of myself with all of you short people in the world. I am just used to looking at the tops of other people’s heads. They see my nostrils, I suppose.

  6. Amen to the conclusion.

    I have to say, you do have a tendency to post videos with noises I just canNOT listen to!

  7. ***it sure is hard to identify which ones are the queer birds in the forest when, in reality, we all are.***

  8. That was such a fun story. The suspense you created at the beginning merits an inclusion in a work of fiction. Please, do. With hobbits, too. Real or imagined. 🙂

    Greetings from London.

    I often have moments like this. My daughter likes to go to the mall and I am her driver many days. So, she and her friends shop and I sit and people watch and sometimes I wonder if others are doing the same. Like are they looking at ME and thinking, “Well, she used to be a beauty when she was young and now is fading fast.” Or…WORSE…”She thinks that she used to be a beauty when she was younger and is now enjoying her mourning of it.”

    You are the best!

  11. Gag-reflex stifling for other situations. I am dying here. Good lord, woman, you are funny.

    Hysterical! I’m not sure it is safe to laugh that much over my breakfast: nearly emulated your fly eating incident, only with non-aeronautical protein in my case.

    Wait, so you’re saying you and I aren’t the “normal” ones? This goes to the heart of every misconception I’ve ever had about myself.

    Also, that was my first time to watch a YouTube of someone hacking. However, not my first YouTube of an off-duty Santa, unfortunately.

    this is why i love you. no one else i know can take a bug-choke run and turn it into such astute observation. that and the self-control necessary to continue running while stifling a hork and still being able to think clearly.

    You conjure a particular mood like no one else, Jocelyn. Thank you. Ptuuii.
