In The Interim...

Jazz seems to get a kick out of how my brain works, so I thought I'd share a little thought flow that I had today:
I was reading an entertainment article about Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn apparently dating and it stated their ages as 26 and 50. I thought "Ewwww. That would be like If I dated my daughter." Then I realized what I had just thought and laughed and thought, "Well, no, not really, because that's just bizarre." Then I thought, "Oh, okay, it would be like if Kate (my daughter) dated "M" (a high school buddy)." Then I imagined my daughter, who thinks deep thoughts, saying something like, "The main problem with helping ravaged countries is that large inflows of cash tend to corrupt their governments." I pictured "M" saying, "Huh?" Then I had a good chuckle.

And just now: My Sweetie has a recurring joke when someone has a shortened version of a name such as "Wil" or "Jon" that goes "His parents were so poor they couldn't afford the other "L." Or in the case of "Jon," they couldn't afford the "H." So when I looked up the spelling for Scarlett Johansson, I thought, "Man! Her parents must have been really wealthy!"

I need to train my brain to think like yours. I would be endlessly amused!

Your Sweetie is a funny guy. But we knew that.

I've always wondered where those other letters went!! Turns out, no one could afford them!

Pearl, or, the way things have been going, "Perl"

Dear geewits, I see that you splurged on the extra "e".

Jazz,
~~I believe if more people thought like I do, the world might be too goofy.

Pearl,
~~Sorry you had to sell your A! hee hee

LGS,
~~Had to have it! And they were on sale that day.

I guess my parents were definitely poor because Ian can also be spelled Iain. I got the poverty-row one.

Of course, regarding Scarlett and Sean and their age difference, there was always Bogey and Bacall and that was about the same disparity.

Ian,
~~I like your spelling of "Ian." Bogey and Bacall. I forgot about that. Yeah.

LOL, LOL...Your mind does work in very interesting ways....

For some reason, 26 and 50 doesn't seem all that strange to me---maybe it is my view now at this age....But also, I have known a few couples where there was this age difference and it worked! So much depends on the individual people.
