Canabalism and Monkey Humping

It is now Austin’s time to shine… kind of.

We spent our vacation in two places, Silver Lake and Truckee. We have friends that rent a cabin near Donner Lake, which is really close to the town of Truckee. Our friends, Jerry and Wendy, are like grandparents to the kids, although I think they prefer aunt and uncle.

Jerry and Wendy thought it would be nice if they took the kids to The Donner Party Memorial, so Sherri and I could relax a little. The Donner Party may be something only us Californians are familiar with, so this might not seem funny to a nonresident, or it may not seem funny at all. I’m kind of twisted so I think it is funny. Here is the conversation I had with Austin upon his return from The Donner Party Memorial.

Hey dad!
Hey dude, how was the exhibit?
It was ok, that Donner Party was a really terrible thing.
What was so terrible?
Just that all those people died.
That’s all that you took away from that exhibit?
No, Wendy let us get some stuff from the shop. I got some postcards, a t-shirt, and I was hungry so I got some jerky.
You went to The Donner Party Memorial and got some jerky?
Yes.
So, you got some “Donner Party” jerky?
Uh huh.
I hear Donner tastes kind of salty.
No I think it tastes like teriyaki.


My mother-in-law Mary also came with us on our trip. She stayed at Silver Lake in the RV while we drove up north to visit Jerry and Wendy. She also brought her dog, Bogie. Bogie is a two-year-old Shitzu. Austin and Alissa LOVE to play with Bogie and his monkey toy. Bogie likes to do more than play with his monkey toy. I have never seen this before, but I swear the dog was humping the damn thing. I asked Mary, “What the hell?” she replied, “ He has lots of toys, and that’s the only one he does that to.” I respond, “Remind me never to pick up that monkey again.”

Later that day Austin is playing with the dog, and yes, he was playing with the monkey. Usually that means tossing the monkey down the hall for the dog to chase. Fine, I’m not too grossed out by that. When Austin put the monkey in his mouth and started having a tug-o-war I had to make it stop,
Dude that is grosser than you want to know, give the dog his monkey.
OK, it’s funny when I give it back. You should see what he does.
I’m afraid to ask.
He humps it.
OK, so you know what he does to it?
Yes.
And you still put the monkey in your mouth?
Oh…
Go brush your teeth.

I love that Farside comic where the man in a restaurant calls out "Donner, party of 5."

Your vacation sounded great!

I love that he went to the Donner Party exhibit and walked away with Donner jerky.

I spent ten years working in restaurants and inevitably ever place would have one smart ass who would spend busy evenings walking over to the hostess podium periodically and calling out "Donner, party of eight. Donner, party of eight your table's ready." and then repeating with a decreased number each time until they reached the inevitable "Mr. Donner, your table's ready." Good times!

Really I don't know how you do it.

I think he can't possibly top the last gross entry and then you do it.

And you dare call me a redneck???

LOL

Guinevere said...

LOL That is just too stinkin funny! LOL Dogs are cool...weird, but cool.

Glad that Austin made the connection and hopefully will not put the monkey in his mouth again. LOL

Oh, and I'm sure you're going to get a few more hits from pervs based on this too! LOL

Leucantha` said...

I have never considered the perv connection, nice perk...

Hey I answered your question over on my spot. I think it was a decent comeback. That is the nice thing about blogs, you have time to think before you type. (Well I think first occasionally but not often.)

First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had
a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before
writing. I've had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

What you posted made a great deal of sense. But, think on this, suppose you typed a catchier title?
I ain't suggesting your information isn't
solid., but suppose you added something to possibly get people's attention? I mean "Canabalism and Monkey Humping" is kinda vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo's front page and note how they create
post titles to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about everything've got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
