Married Too Long: Cheers

April 12, 2012


Lauren (making lunch): Up, Up, on your feet!
Lloyd (playing a computer game and not looking up from the screen): What are we doing?
Lauren: Beating the Delta Panthers!
Lloyd (sighing robotically): That’s impossible. The Delta Panthers cannot be beaten.
Lauren: That’s right! (Strikes victory pose) The Delta Panthers cannot be beaten!

(Lunch-making and game-playing resume in silence.)

    That reminds me of an old episode of the Simpsons --

    Hynpotist: You are all very good players…
    Team: [entranced] We are all very good players…
    Hypnotist: You will beat Shelbyville…
    Team: We will beat Shelbyville…
    Hypnotist: You will give one hundred and ten percent…
    Team: That’s impossible. No one can give more than one hundred percent. By definition that is the most anyone can give…

    Way to play along Lloyd!!! Reading your posts are sometimes like looking through the looking glass for me & seeing how things are supposed to be.

    We recently watched Walk the Line that was on TV. Shortyly after,also in the kitchen, began:

    I’ve got arms,
    I’ve got arms,
    (silence—then, but you got no voice)

    Btw: I sound just like Reese! Let’s gooooooo….
