Electrified Camping Rhetoric

She said, “My right boot weighs five pounds more than my left boot.”

He said, “That’s a swell boot.”

She gave him “that” look.

He said, “Well, that’s what happens when you soak them in water.”

She sighed heavily and said, “I didn’t bring a change of shoes.”

He said, “Well, when we get back to camp you can just take your boot off and dry it out.”

She gave him “that” look again. “Right. I’ll just plug the hair drier into the nearest current bush and dry my boot with it.”

He said, “This conversation is so going in the blog.”

She said, “I don’t know honey, it’s a pretty old joke.”

He said, “Yeah, but your readers still might get a charge out of it.”

    Poor Amoeba, all he wanted to do was to help. And per your report he did loan you his shoes to go inside the Loo (guess that’s what they call it in B.C.). And it might have been more a little more considerate to have loaned them a earlier in the traipse down there.. But then nobody is perfect. 🙂

    1. Jim — why should or would Amoeba give me his shoes before I needed them? I am used to going barefoot, he isn’t. Aside from that, his shoes are much too big for me and they would have made my walk to the outhouse much more difficult!

    1. Linda — I am so glad you plugged in your comment. Amoeba has been waiting all afternoon for you to zap us.
