What a strange day yesterday was. Nothing big happened, but I was scattered and distracted, totally living inside my head. Maybe because I ran into some old friends unexpectedly, which of course started me thinking about old times and all the stuff I've been through since I last saw those people and do they really want to talk to me, and... well, all that stuff which goes along with seeing old friends. I started to get mad at myself for having such an unproductive day, but then I remembered that days like that usually end up being good for my creativity.

So here's something funny. I've been watching the CBS law drama The Good Wife. Not earth shattering drama, but I keep going back to it. So last night it came on, and DH pulled up the description on the screen. It said something like, "Alicia is attracted to her cocounsel," (hyphen, please!) and DH misread "cocounsel" as "coconut." He said, "That's one attractive coconut."

I launched into a Spanish accent (don't know why I chose Spanish) and said, "Oh, my coco-nut, you are sooo sexy." We laughed. My 11 year old heard and suddenly I had an appreciative audience, so I said some more things. "Oh, coco-nut, let me stroke your hair. Let me rap upon your husk." Et cetera. We giggled for a while in girly silliness about that sexy coconut.

I got her settled into bed, and DH and I settled on the couch. Later on in the show, Alicia got a silly gift from her boss. It was a coconut.

  1. That's too funny. Life does have a sense of humor, you just have to listen really hard for the joke sometimes.

  2. Okay, that's bizarre. And don't spoil it for me, I haven't seen the epi yet! ;)

    I think this show is one of the best on TV right now. "Earth shattering drama"? No, but then, what is? We're talkin' TV here, sister. Gimme a break.


  3. Sexy coconut...

    Oh, I get it. Like a coconut bra... the one where Rachel claimed she kissed Winona Ryder.

  4. @wigsf Ha! Now you're just showing off. :)

    @Knyt I'll give you a break, all right!

    @Linda And then a guy picked up the coconut and said, "Nice coconut." We looked at each other and died laughing.

  5. You put de lime in de coconut and shake it all about ... or something.

    I love the silly accent goofing off thing. Sometimes you just have to roll with it. I got even last night with Darc by poking a fingerprint in his bread while he was trying to make a sandwich. It was in response to having crumbs flicked at me. But we almost died laughing. :) You never know when teh funneh will strike!

  6. I guess the universe is encouraging you to be silly and playful and laugh more often :)

  7. @Sarah I think you're right. :)

    @Fal I'm sure he deserved a fingerprint in his sandwich!
