The newest parts of my life are in fact not new at all and are common to all mankind. I have just been busy and time is flying by! I remember a time that FEELS not so long ago, but is in fact many years ago, when a week or a month seemed like eternity!! So when the calendar pages keep rolling over faster and faster I find it hard to make time to write a post. We can all be thankful that I have Marcie close by to fuel my creative juices in story telling.
Not so long ago we were cruising through YouTube listening to classics from the 80s and 90s. Who doesn’t like that right? After Abby and I had played a few of our favs I asked Marcie which song she wanted me to play next. Her response was, “How about that guy, uh…Beethoven? Or it was a song about Beethoven?” I asked her if she meant the song called Roll Over Beethoven that they played in the movie Beethoven about a St. Bernard dog named Beethoven. ( Could I possibly write Beethoven any more? Probably but I will try to stop myself. ) Marcie said no that wasn’t what she meant. She said he sang a song that was somewhat like beauty and the beast. With slightly squinted eyes and a tilted head I replied….” Meatloaf?” “YES, she says” Let that all sink in deep guys….. we are slowly getting a brighter glimpse of the inner fabrication of Marcie’s mind. Hold on to your purse and keep your hands and feet inside the car at all times!
Its very unlikely that I could write only ONE story involving Marcie, so here is story number two. Now I wasn’t present for this situation but I later heard about it. Apparently there was a conversation about motos going on between some friends of ours and Marcie. They were talking about common issues the motos have and getting things fixed. Marcie mentioned that she always has troubles with her horns and that she can only seem to get one to work and the other is just rubbish. As surprised as you might be is as surprised as our friends were to hear that Marcie’s moto was equipped with not one horn but TWO!
One for the left and one for the right handle bar! It didn’t take long to work out the clarity. The button on the left, the horn that works and is clearly marked with a horn logo is, yes, a horn. The opposite handle bar with the same size button and unsurprisingly located in the same place is the “2nd horn.” Low and behold the reason it doesn’t blare out an alarming HONK isn’t so mysterious, because in fact it is actually the start button. Yes, the same start button that Marcie pushes every time she starts the moto but apparently soon after, magically turns into a broken horn. Mystery solved. Now if only I had a follow up story to redeem Marcie but alas I have only to add what JUST happened. When I was clarifying the story with Marcie I asked her what exactly happened with her moto story having two horns. She was completely dumb founded. “What??? My moto doesn’t have two horns ” ” Yes I know, Marc but the story when you THOUGHT it had two horns!” She replied laughing saying she thought I meant her moto had “two horns like COW horns!” Oh sis…..I am TRYING to help you here! HAHAHAHA
Now do not think I am trying to paint Marcie as a big dumb dumb. She isn’t, I just happen to capture the moments in writing that we ALL have from time to time. It’s just Marcie’s usually are more funny than others!
Next I want to tell you about someone Abby recently met. In Asia it is very normal for people to have two names. They will have their birth name of course, and if they are invested in trying to learn English often choose an English name that is easier for foreigners to pronounce. It isn’t as common here in Cambodia but it is especially common in places like China for sure and Korea too. ( As far as I am aware! ) ANYWAYS, last week Abby had the honor of meeting someone who had chosen their own English name. Goldcorn! I am not kidding, Goldcorn. When asked why they chose that name their response was that they felt corn is an amazing food and it truly doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. I couldn’t agree more!
Well I am going to leave it at that! I do have a few funny photos to include for your viewing pleasure so please feel free to take a peek. I added some pictures of our flowers growing in our kitchen to glam up this post also. I always enjoy your comments as well if you feel so inclined!
