usual suspects

i can’t remember what shawn and i were arguing about. . . something. we tend to argue a lot, it’s fun. we enjoy it. anyway the conversation went something like this:
“you got big feet,” he said pointing down at my size 12s.
“gee, thanks,” i said swatting at him.
“i have small feet,” he said.
“my feet aren’t THAT big,” i said. “any smaller and i wouldn’t be able to walk.”
“that’s true you’d fall over.”
“besides,” i said. “men my height have feet way, way bigger than mine.”
“yeah.”
“and,” i said, “i have small hands for my size.”
“really?” he said putting his hand up to mine.
“see?” i said.
“yeah, you do have small hands.”
“because i’m a girl!” i proclaimed getting up to leave for a meeting, “and not the transsexual you suspected.”

    I’ve known transsexuals. Transsexuals have been friends of mine. You, madame, are no transsexual.

    You know what they say; Big hands & small feet = Extremely powerful libido…

    Maybe that was green M&M’s…

    I dunno…

    No No Thomas, you’re way off. It’s big hands & small feet = big gloves and small shoes. You’re thinking of priapism.

    I had priapism once, but the penicillin cleared it right up.

    When I was in college my boyfriend needed to write a paper on a Greek mythological character, so of course he chose Priapus. Since I was taking an art course, he enthusiastically asked me to illustrate his report, making extra sure I represented the proper dimension accorded to such a character. I did, it was somewhat embarrassing, but not too much for me, because it wasn’t for my class or one of my teachers. My beau loved it, his professor probably rolled his eyes and sighed. Yes, Thomas, he was driven by puerile interests just like those study hall guys. He’s an old geezer now, at least 50, he’s probably matured a bit.

    That’s the one thing you can never tell about guys… they may AGE, but never MATURE.

    I call it the “Toys R Us Kid Coping Syndrome”, or TRUCKS, as in “I don’t want to grow up, I’m a Toys R Us kid…”

    Now when you see an adult man acting sophomoricly, just think to yourself that he’s playing with his TRUCKS.

    It’s kind of fun not growing up. On those dark winter nights when I troll the aisles of WalMart for peace and serenity, I find myself most often in the toy aisles checking out all the new Barbies. I see these burly construction workers over by the Hot Wheels and GI Joes, I figure they are travelling back too–only this time with a paycheck. Of course we tell ourselves we are just looking for toys for our kid friends. I say Jodi, buy those Strawberry Shortcake dolls!!!
