shake your monkey makers

I was headed to the changeroom after my workout when the middle-aged woman at the front desk called me over. Know why? Just to tell me she always notices when I come in because I am always smiling and she thought it was nice. Isn't that the best? It really made my day and I told her so.

And then...

a) I kicked her in the nuts.
b) I told her I'm not REALLY smiling, the botox froze me that way.
c) We made flattering portraits of each other on Lite Brite.

Oh my god, I just had the best idea. In the summer in Old Montreal, instead of guys that draw your caricature. There should be a dood out there 'sketching' your face on a LITE BRITE doohickey.


Your friend,
Nat (not smiling)

I pick (a) you kicked her in the nuts .... because after a few moments you realized it was not a woman at all - but a man dressed as a woman and it was not your smile that he was actually looking at !! Geez I'm good at this ..

"Lite Brite, makin' things with light,
Outasite, makin' things with Lite Brite..."

...I can still hear the commercial.
That, and "Pop the dice in the plastic bubble, It pops you in and out of trouble. Here comes (someone), look out Jack! You've got Trouble, you go back! The game is fun for Dad and Mother, and sis can trouble her mean old brother."

My head is full of old commercial jingles...
