Telling It Like It Is (He's 38)


Squee!

Today is HUBS' birthday (he's 38), and to celebrate this occasion on my blog I decided to relay some stories as written by HUBS in an email he sent yesterday (he's 38). So, here goes...

Hi, folks.

As a school computer technician, I get to overhear some pretty hilarious stuff while working. Such as (quoted from memory) the following.

Years ago, at a Jefferson City elementary school...

Third-grader: "Ms. Gutierrez?"

Ms. Gutierrez, warily: "Yes, Billy?"

Third-grader: "You know why Santa's nose is red?"

Ms. Gutierrez, still wary: "Why, Billy?"

Third-grader, matter-of-factly: "Capillaries."

......................................................

Today, at a St. Louis County high school...

White student: "I want to understand this whole 'rap' thing."

Black student: "That would take weeks."

......................................................

Later today, at the same school, with the same students...

White student: "Rap doesn't seem to have much of a message."

Black student: "[Something about Grandmaster Flash, and then...] The old-school rappers had messages."

White student: "Yeah, but now, it's just about their own lives. 'My girl cheated on me,' 'my life is tough,' stuff like that."

[Pause]

White student: "So it's sorta like country now, really."

[Longer pause]

Black student: "Don't you ever say that again."

.......................................................

Recently, at the same St. Louis County high school...

Student 1: "Hey, do you guys remember that boy that swam in the football field when it flooded last year?"

Student 2: "Yeah, I bet he got salmonella."


HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUBS (he's 38)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HILARIOUS. I loved the rap as country conversation the most I think.

Thanks, kim. I think the rap convo is probably the best, too.

LOVE IT!! Those are so funny. I think your Hubs always sounds like the sweetest guy -- one LUCKY guy obviously, you two make the sweetest couple!! Happy Birthday to him, yay!!

Thanks for your notes too my dear. (Oh, in answer to your question, yeah I just can't run for a month so as not to cause any trauma to the healing-process, I guess. All I know is I will do whatever they say, man, that is for sure.)

Happy B-day HUBS! You're 38!

I love those stories. Especially the rap / country one. Save that, and steal it for one of your screenplays!
