Ya know, once I saw a video of Bill Cosby doing a stand up routine. I howled, I rolled..to me it was extremely funny. Oh, this had to have been a good 15 or so years ago. If I happen to remember it, I will at least smile it was that funny to me.
I don't remember all his words. I only remember a sentence that I think of every single time I see it happen...and that is a LOT of times.
He was talking about speaking to someone, and in this sketch, this person was listening with their head jutted forward on their neck...eyes squinted in concentration and mouth wide open. He made the remark that he wondered if people who did open mouth thing while listening did so with the hope that they would understand better-- or even hear better-- if they let the light in through their open mouths. Oh I rolled!
I wish I could remember how it went exactly because it was funny as heck and the audience loved it. *I* loved it because I have seen people do that SO many times while listening to me. AND I have seen it in general in all other circumstances thru the years in public or a meeting. I used to make an internal mental crack to myself that I must be speaking Latin again...they were sure trying hard with the squinted eyes and wide open mouth.
The air conditioning came on this afternoon! Yup. It got up to 75 in the house! I can hardly believe it. Come on Spring. But some of us, certainly me, will be complaining that it's too hot and humid very soon.
I took this last Spring.
