The Art of Noise (or humor)

November 14, 2008

Today's Friday Flashback is brought to you by the Art of Humor. Which, by and LARGE is the best medicine for everything. Today's Friday Flashback is also brought to you by Vera's husband Stu, who by and LARGE is the first person I call when I need to hear something funny.

Case in Point:

Yesterday I dialed the home of Stu and Vera (who LUCKY ME! live just three houses away).

Stu: Hello.

Me: Tell me something funny.

Stu: I don't really have anything funny, 'cept maybe a scar.

Me: Oh? Is this a recent scar? (I'm thinking something tragic happened like the time he shot himself in the hand with a nail gun or when he broke his hip).

Stu: No.

Me: Oh. When did you get it then?

Stu: When I was six days old.

Me: Gufaw, gufaw, gufaw.... STU!


I hung up the phone and decided it was time to escape the house. I visit the lovely home of Vera and Stu. Stu had gone to sleep already. Vera was packing the liquor and canned chili for a camping trip.

As revealed in Snoopy, I like to look around when I visit others. I also read notes and whatnot that may or may not be private. Vera had a post-it on the counter with "The Art Of Noise" written on it.

"Huh." I said. I forgot all about the Art Of Noise.

Here you have it folks. Your Friday Flashback. Which, by and LARGE, is as minimally informative as possible!

If you want info, holler.
