That we're a weird bunch.

I.

[In Burlington, waiting for the bus.]

S.: Can I eat the poire [pear]?
J.: No, once we're on the bus.
S. [menacing voice]: I think you want to give it to me now.
Me: And why's that?
S. [puts arms in front of her]: Because I'm a ZOMBIE.

II.

[in the bus, getting closer to Montreal quite late due to retarded driver, sun almost completely set.]

S.: Can you turn on the light?
Me: Why? We're not reading anything and there's plenty of lights all around us.
S. [ponders for a while, looking at the my ring which I have temporarily left under her care, then says in a subdued, raspy voice]: "We needs light to see the preciousss.."

III.

[at Steve's Music]

Guy behind the counter: Do you think your dad will let you play that drum?
S.: Maybe but it's to fight against the government to get money for the big kids.

IV.

[at home]

S.: D. [her much older brother, who's now in college] has a new girlfriend!
Me: Well that's interesting, I thought he was gay.
S. What's that?
Me: It means that he has a certain tendency to have boyfriends rather than girlfriends.
S.: Well he likes girls now. He also has orange hair.
Me: Well that makes total sense.

Zombies eat fleshy pears.

The Cthulhu & bunny is especially for you. Svetlana loves her stuffed animals, but it was only recently that I discovered her partiality to tentacles... She is also partial to fleshy pears. Perhaps she is a zombie bunny, too.

Just for me? I can hardly express my gratitude!

It's making me yearn for a new zombie bunny.

Cordially,

Sorry we didn't show up. I'm still very much looking forward to making your acquaintance.
