John and I were totally silly this Saturday. We just spent time with each other, because all last week, he was just as busy as I was, I was always home late, and I felt like, we didn't see each other much. We had a good, peaceful day - went to O'Charlies as a date. I got to hear about the books John's reading, some about Warmachine, and stuff. The waitress said we were so cute! That's the second waitress to say that in a month! <3 Makes me happy, oh yes - John is amazing!
Exhibit of a Particularly Ridiculous Conversation
He said, "No, it's filled with ... [wait for it, wait for it - what non sequitur will he say?] ... chicken livers."
I laughed. "Chicken livers feel good!" He was made speechless by this comment - a rarity for John. I laughed even harder.
"Have you ever felt a chicken liver?" He turned around, slowly, and gave me this *stunned* look. It was SO amazing! I've never laughed that hard in a LONG time!! Probably in at least a year.
I told him, I bet you didn't expect me to say that! He said, that would be a true statement. It's so hard to get any reaction out of John - he's pretty stoic, most of the time - nothing surprises him. So, when he does make a face, it's *good.* And it's true. Chicken livers feel amazingly silky smooth and so cool - I love touching them - mom cooked some for the cats once, and I helped.
Shortly after this, he did a silly dance and I told him he looked like an egg head - and laughed hysterically at *that* because, I said, I had no idea what that meant. He said, that makes two of us and I must be still tired. I was laughing an unusually lot, it's true.
Brandon Sanderson, my favorite author, says that kids find things that don't make sense funny, but adults usually graduate to more subtle forms of humor, that rely on word plays and such. I, on the other hand, have never graduated to this more refined kind of humor - non sequiturs and nonsense are still my *favorite* - and I laugh hysterically at such things. I wonder what this says about me. I do like other humor ... nonsense though, is such fun.
