How many of you remember the old SNL routine, with the flight attendants saying goodbye to the departing passengers? As the people filed off the plane, the flight crew got ruder and ruder, and the “buh bye now!” got more sarcastic with each passenger. I think of this often, because an acquaintance of mine, who works in a local shop, and I have had an ongoing “buh bye” routine going for years.
We try to sneak up on each other so that each of us can be the first to say it. I’m afraid I’ll never top her “drive-by buh bye” that she delivered out her car window, as she saw me walking down the street. I hope that which ever one of us survives longer, at the memorial service for our departed friend, has the presence of mind to whisper “buh bye!” Who says people who live in small towns don’t know how to have fun?
It seems only natural that Pinky would deliver this line to the departing Cublanta twins!
Of course the Meihems just ignore her!
Real Life Panda Alert!
Xing Er, lately of Copenhagen Zoo, decided that his enclosure was just way too boring, and he went walkabout in the zoo. He climbed a metal pole to make his escape (I spit on your tree guards!!!!). While there have been numerous red pandas that have managed at least a temporary scamper to freedom, this is the first time that I have heard of a giant panda making an escape. (Other than Pinky, but she had a secret tunnel!) You go, Xing Er!!!
We are all getting tired of staying at home!
