Always Scurrying

posted 29 Aug 2006, 11PM | 11 Comments

I could tell you more about our honeymoon-in-progress, eating good food, kayaking through ocean lagoons. But why bother, when the first paragraph of this email from my mom is so much more entertaining?

Hi Jenny and Ryan,

It was wonderful to hear from you and we are glad you are enjoying the honeymoon! Maybe you could acquire a few Thai recipes? Yummmmmm. In the meantime, watch out for those dogs--Rabies is a very serious, potentially fatal affliction. You must avoid getting near a possible dog bite at all costs--even if you have to scurry away to another part of the street. There are vast neurological ramifications of contact with a rabid dog.

To her credit, we have seen dogs everywhere. Bless that woman.

Nevermind the rabid dogs. Stay away from very skinny white American men with their pants pulled up to high claiming to know the truth about certain pageant contestants. Then you should cross the street.

I have memories of the ever insightful nancy gantz lamenting the presence of Dakota. Perchance this one particular dog relationship has colored her view of dogs. among my favorite Ms. Gantz quotes is her stalking the property with cries of "doggie go home!"

Best Nancy story EVER...she was playing tennis and couldn't hit a single shot. Finally, after way too long into the game, she realized that she had no strings in her raquet. Woops!

You should mention that your mom is a full on nurse and not just an over protective mom.

My mother isn't merely a crazy and over-protective mom, she's also a nurse practitioner.

I remember the "clicky-clicky-clicky" thing she does by rubbing her nose while driving. yyeeeccchhhhh....

so is that clicking nose thing a genetic family thing. Jeremy does it and it freaks me out to no end. Could it perchance indicate that certain of the gantz family are immune to bird flu? If so I'll gladly drink your blood, actually, even if you aren't immune to bird flu ... I just need something new in my life to replace weed.

Get your doctor to prescribe you a variety of anti-anxiety meds and amphetimines. Get fucked up legally.

yeah but then I'd be like Ned. And I'm pretty sure Ned wasn't happy. You don't know Ned, but if you did, you know what I mean.
