Three Band Names and Three Random Cuts
A few more band names, and how the phrases actually came up in my life:
Mexican Toothbrush (My nephew is extremely proud of an extremely regular toothbrush he happened to have acquired in Mexico.)
Pubic Saroo (What I said out loud when the main character of Lion became a grown man.)
Rustic Sucker Punch (Actual phrase in an episode of Twin Peaks.)
Now that we've covered that, a few more thoughts:
- There are few certainties in life. Here is one of them: If you ask me to cover some food with Saran wrap, I will mess it up intensely. It generally ends with me sweaty and exasperated with a dish half-covered in a crinkly train wreck.
- I need to start asking for a to-go box before I even order food at restaurants. Once I’m full, if I don’t immediately get calories 2200-4000 out of sight, I’ll end up eating them anyway.
- At a recent party to celebrate my goddaughter’s First Communion, some relatives and I were discussing the various houses we lived in during college (seemed like the appropriate time and place for this conversation). I recounted how my then-five-year-old niece started bawling immediately upon entry to my senior-year house: I can’t imagine why she wasn’t comfortable amid half-naked chubby guys, a sludge-covered floor, dozens of empty beer bottles, a palpable lack of pest control, and a general odor of irresponsibility. Here's a screenplay of an average day in that house:
Anyway, my brother-in-law chimed in that he never really lived in a house like that, that the house he and his Division I soccer teammates lived in was actually pretty nice. Gee, it must be nice to be athletic AND mature.
Here’s what I imagined his annoying house like:
Ugh. What overachievers.
