The long wait is over! The Mystery Hour is tonight! Gone are the shackles of a Mystery Hour free summer. In their place are the wings of local comedy. I don’t like giving away the secrets of what is going to be happening at the show, but I should tell you that there will be the latest installment of What is G Norm Saying?!
Also, I’m going to be in Colorado next week so I don’t know how much I’ll be able to post. Who knows? Maybe more often.
For the last prompt I asked: What is the worst place you have traveled?
I’ll use Allan’s answer:
“You know, I have enjoyed most of my traveling adventures that it seems impossible to pick out a specific “worst place” that I’ve visited.
However, I don’t remember my experience driving through Idaho with my family, so I suppose the absolute mind-numbing mediocrity of the Idaho landscape must have been so bad that my brain recorded over it with something awesome; like the exciting thunderstorm over the summer baked Arizona desert. . . (I like to think of my brain cells as unlabeled VHS tapes and my senses as a VCR. . .it may be outdated, but it makes it easier to defend when I don’t remember important events or the names of people)”
Idaho, huh? Being from Iowa I’ve heard a lot about Idaho and Ohio. People never seem to get it right. Here’s a sample:
Jeff meets a man at a restaurant.
Jeff: “Hi, I’m Jeff.”
Paul: “Oh, hi Jeff, I’m Paul.”
Jeff: “Nice to meet you, Paul. Where are you from?”
Paul: “I’m from Alabama.”
Jeff: “Oh, great. I have friends in Tuscaloosa and Montgomery. Do you ever get down to the coast? That area is beautiful.”
Paul: “In fact, I’m from Tuscaloosa. You seem to know a lot about it. Have you ever been there?”
Jeff: “No. I just have an adequate knowledge of the geography of my country.”
Paul: “How about you? Where are you from?”
Jeff: “I’m from Iowa.”
Paul: “Oh great, you must get sick of potatoes and cheering on the Buckeyes.”
Jeff: “Actually, you’re referring to Idaho and Ohio.”
Paul: “Yeah, didn’t you say you were from Ohio, Idaho?”
Jeff: “No. I’m from Iowa.”
Paul: “Yeah, that’s what I said.”
Jeff: Actually, it’s a different state. It’s in a different part of the country. The name has different letters in it.”
Paul: “Oh. It must be cold there.”
Jeff: “Yeah, there you go. It can be brutal.”
Paul: “I couldn’t live in Canada.”
Jeff: “I think you’re thinking of Ottawa.”
Jeff: “Iowa is its own state located in the Midwest.”
Paul: “You sure you aren’t thinking of Hawaii spelled backwards?”
Jeff: “Yeah, I’m sure. Here, say it with me…I”
Jeff: What’s that spell?
Jeff: You are an idiot.
Paul: Do they speak English there?
Jeff: Yes. Yes, Paul, they do.
Paul: Well, it was good to meet you.
Jeff: Good to meet you too Paul. Good luck with this session of Congress.
Next prompt: What is the last sentence you typed?
