things that make me laugh
friends are the best.
the other day i was feeling ok, but not amazing. in an (unintentional) effort to make my day more stupendous my friend told me a story about his childhood.
apparently he was really intrigued by the cacti in his dentist's office. he knew not to touch them because they were prickly... but one looked wooly and soft.
see where this is going yet?
he was convinced the wooly cactus would be soft and nice to touch. so he licked it.
the things i love about this story are: how hilarious little boys are, imagining what his parents must have thought, imagining the dentist retelling this story for years, the fact that this man is my friend and i could still see him doing something like this.
ps- i know you're laughing now too.
