Me being silly.

So often I come up with silly things or say funny things and think, "Gosh, I should write that in my LJ; people might be amused." But I never do. Well, I am this time. So there.

A few weeks ago, it suddenly came to me -- a great new word! The study of lollipops, surely, must be called lollipopology. Say it; it's fun!

Last weekend, penelopecat and I were lying on my bed, and as always I was doing weird things with my hands (well, when I'm not doing weird things with my voice, anyway). I began to make a fist but stuck out my pinky and index fingers, moving them slowly like a snail's eyestalks, and moved my hand closer and closer to her.

She eventually swatted at my hand, and the "eyestalks" were retracted for a moment... then slowly, they came back out and the "snail" continued its march toward her...

She swatted at it again. Same thing...

She went to swat at it a third time, but this time the snail roared and attacked her! Oh no!!

"It's an Africanized Killer Snail!" I warned.

"Oh really?" she asked.

"Yeah. They're like the Africanized Killer Bees, but not as well known. I didn't think they existed here on the West Coast."

"Why not?"

"Well, I thought they only got as far as Salt Lake City."
