Happy man (with dog) in the park

This morning when I was running in Liberty Park in the semi-dark, I encountered an older man with a dog. I told him his dog was pretty. He told me his dog was 1/2 Jack Russell, 1/2 American Eskimo, and 100% pain in the rear. I laughed. And then our conversation went like this.

MAN: I like to leave 'em laughing. Here's a joke for you.

ME (remembering the mermaid joke a stranger told me and Randi in Eugene): Okay . . .

MAN: What did the parrot say to the hummingbird?

ME (hoping this isn't another joke about bra sizes): What?

MAN: "For crying out loud, you'd think you could at least learn the words!"

You're welcome.

Where do you find these people? That is awesome. I think I'm going to go to Fred Meyer today and just stop total strangers and tell them that joke.

That's a pretty good joke, actually. But you're talking to strangers in the semi-dark? In Liberty Park? YIKES. (all to say, I would be too scared to run in the semi-dark. Or really, to run at all. What if I had a heart attack? Or looked silly?)

Ha ha ha! That's awesome. Chloe is 3 months today grandma. Stay tuned for a post. We miss you!
