I will post details of my shop hop when I get home but for now I am at work and so photo-less and killing time so I thought Id tell you about a conversation I had with Dennis that highly amused my small brain last night.
American friends are coming to our area and I have promised them a whistle stop tour. Trying to think of the highlights of Liverpool I remembered this now famous statue ( which has now been duplicated with many differently coloured clones popping up around the city). Dennis demurred calling it 'scary'.
'How can it be scary?' I ask, 'Its half dog half banana. What's scary about that?"
'Exactly." he replies.
Hard to answer that so I kept silent.
But he ruminates about these things.
"Why is it a banana?" he asks, genuinely perplexed.
I lost interest in this long long ago, "Oh, I don't know. Its a zen thing. Accept it. half dog. Half banana. It just is"
"But," he says, with that tone in his voice he gets, knowing that he is about to be funny, "If its going to be half fruit shouldn't it be half paw-paw?"
I thought it really funny until I searched just now to find you a photo of the half dog and half banana and found out it is in fact a half - lamb.
Never knew that.
There you go. Have to go back to work now.
Aren't you glad I stopped by to waste your time?
