People say the wackiest things out here on the east coast.
Here are just a few of the things I've heard while on vacation here in Cape Cod:
"Ben Affleck. I'm telling you, it was Ben Affleck." "It was Freddy Prinze, Jr. and Jessica Biel." "He's right. It was Jessica Biel-- God she's hot." -- debate at the Cotuit Kettleers Cape League Baseball game over who starred in the movie "Summer Catch."
"Julie and Jason bought the keg." -- Jim telling everyone that we were supplying the hooch for the big 5K run aftermath on Saturday. He was lying.
"Dad, I'm going. I'm peeing in the ocean." -- A.J. letting me know she has joined the club of people who have micterated in the Atlantic.
"(In best Boston accent) I wanna raise a jar... to the 2004 Red Sox." -- Wally, who apparently toasts the first Sox championship every time he gets smothered.
"You're on TV? You don't wear makeup or girly underwear or anything like that?" -- A crazy fisherman who apparently doesn't know what the lighting in a studio does to someone without makeup.
"AAAUUUGHHHHHHH... AAAUUUUGHHHHHHH!!!!!!" -- Jim waking up in a horrific scream as I opened the door to his room just as he was aout to fall asleep. He was genuinely shrieking for his life and it was absolutely hilarious-- his screaming like a little girl, that is.
More to come later, but right now it's time for a big Orme/O'Sullivan dinnner. We're also apparenlty way overdue to raising a jar to the '04 Red Sox. God, I love Walter.
