I'm kinda at a loss for what to write about lately. Writer's block I guess. However, lately I've noticed that Trent and I talk about some of the most weird, random, eccentric things. Take today, for instance. At school, Trent sneezed and I said, "Bless you." Then he sneezed again and I said, "Alright, I'm not asking for God's blessing for TWO sneezes! You only get one sneeze blessing a day." And on the way home from school, he sneezed again. I forgot about our deal of only one sneeze blessing a day and accidently said "Bless you." He reminded me of our deal so I replied with, "Fine! Then.....condemn you!" He thought that was pretty funny but I guess you had to be there. Sometimes I wish I could record our conversations for all to hear :)

Then, tonight we were eating a very delicious, very healthy dinner consisting of Lean Pockets, Sunchips, and a cup of Ramen noodles, when I suddenly blurted out, "I wonder how we know where our mouths are...?" Trent just turned, looked at me, and began to laugh. Then after we got done eating, I asked Trent if he wanted to take some Pepto Bismol before he went to IUSB to watch a speaker. He laughed and said something along the lines of, "Heck no! Do you know how funny it would be if I had farties the whole night?" And I replied with, "Yeah right, more like squirties after eating this dinner!"

This kind of language is not uncommon for us. Some previous conversations have consisted of, "How would I ever know if the color I call 'blue' is the same color that you're seeing?" or "How does regular digestion take 20 hours but you can get diarrhea within 15 minutes?! How in the world does it go through you so fast?!" And just the other day I was talking to him about my philosophy class. I said, "Trent, I was thinking so hard about 'eternity' and it boggled my mind so much that I almost passed out! The room kinda went black for a second."

I guess once you're with someone for so long, and they know everything about you, there's really nothing else to talk about. Therefore, you have to talk about the silly things in life. All of life's little wonders and questions. So that's what I've been thinking about lately. I hope it made you at least giggle a little.
