Honest to God Real Exchange

This was just too funny--and completely unplanned. Mr. G, who is practically family, stopped by to visit with my Grandparents, my Mom, and me. During the course of the conversation he mentioned that a friend of his, E. Yurik, had had triple bypass surgery:

Grandpa: Wow, that's a shame. She's D. Yurik's daughter, right? They all lived over yonder in --.

Mr. G: Yeah, that's right. She married and moved to --. Had a couple of kids.

Granny: Yeah, D. Yurik, I remember him. I knew him well. He--

And, of course, I burst into hysterical laughter at this point. Mom was the first to catch on and she explained it to everyone else present, but they still looked at me like I was a complete loon. Which I am.

(The details of the conversation have been imaginatively recreated, but the main lines are recorded exactly as they were said. I swear, I can't make this stuff up.)

Just got back from the Ren Faire. It was at "Upper Canada Village", and is the first annual etc. They had an "education day". four thousand, one hundred and forty seven kids showed up.

Brenda is tired.

I got sunburnt.

I lifted a 45 pound chain shirt about four thousand times for kids to try on.

We are pretty much deaf.

We made enough money selling knives in the "next" two days to think seriously about doing it again.

With more staff.
