Some scenes from Xmas ‘04...
From the 8-mos pregnant girl on Xmas Eve, when asked if she was going to breast feed:
“I don’t think so.”
”I don’t feel like it.”
Then she set down her O’Doul’s, put on her jacket, and went outside for a smoke.
That same night, after I told my brother and the rest of ‘em that I’d gone to Millennium Park on a blind date with an Iraqi war vet.
Dreyfus: “What?? An Iraqi war veteran? He’s probably crazy!”
Satya C: “Well duh -- what do you think makes him so attractive?”
From Tommy’s kids, shortly after we started watching “It’s a Wonderful Life” on Xmas night:
Mattie: “EEEEEEW! It’s black-and-white!”
Griffin (who earlier, with great authority, and as if revealing a closely-guarded secret, gravely explained what high-tops are): “Can we play video games when this Twilight Zone is over?”
Did anyone else hear the radio bit with Steve AND GARRY on Xmas Eve? That *was* Garry I heard egging Steve on... or was it one of those aural hallucinations I’ve been waiting so long to try? Whatever it was, ‘twas akin to running across an 8mm film of your long-divorced (and, for that matter, dead) parents, in happier times....
