Coming home from a walk around the neighborhood with the dogs, Stephen and I were admiring the fall colors.
When we came upon a large pile of fallen leaves, we had the following conversation.
Stephen: Should I make a leaf angel – you know a snow angel but with leaves? I could do that and you could take a picture of it for your blog.
Pam: Sure. I’ll take the dogs so you can lay down.
Stephen: Well, I can’t do it now. At least not until I put on a raincoat because I don’t want to get wet. And I guess I’ll need waterproof pants. I’ll also need a waterproof hat. I’ll have to put on waterproof gloves and boots. And underwear – I’ll need waterproof underwear. You know…slugs.
Pam: Why don’t you just wrap your body in saran wrap?
Stephen: I’ll have to make the angel fast then before I run out of air.
Pam: Okay – you can leave a hole for your nose and mouth.
We didn’t talk the rest of the way home. However, our silence was interrupted by fits of laughter. I’m still waiting to get a picture of that leaf angel.
May the farce be with you!
