A conversation held while driving through the rain on the way to Starbucks today:

Riley, from the backseat: *weird noise*

Me: “What’s up with that.”

JB: “He sounds like those beavers.”

Me: “Beavers? What beavers?”

JB: “You know, beavers.”

Me: “Oh, right. Yeah, he does sort of sound like a beaver. Quiet back there, you beaver.”


Me: (idly) “We should get some beavers. Like to keep as pets.”

JB: “Pssh. You get some beavers, here’s what happens. First you’re all, ooh, I have beavers, no one has beavers, I’m totally cool. Then you get home from work and it’s like, fuckin beavers. Your fence is gone.”

Me: “Haa. Your walls are chewed to hell.”

JB: “Your house is gnawed to a stump and everyone has waffle prints on their faces.”

Me: “…waffle?”

JB: “From their tails. Beavers get pissed, they start whacking shit with their tails. They’re all, NO DEAL. Whack!”

Me: “Beaver, deal or no deal?”

    At first I thought you were talking about my beloved OSU Beavers. Go Beavs! (I’m a dork, I know.)

    Plus, they’re awfully testy when playing chess with dead presidents.

  7. Katie on November 6th, 2006 12:29 am

    And then you get to tell people at work that you have a pet beaver and they all think you’re a kinky weirdo!! That would be cool.

  8. samantha jo campen on November 6th, 2006 12:36 am

    I’m sorry but I’m supposed to be going to bed and I’m laughing my ass off with tears rolling down my face. You two are the best. BUT you’ve got me all riled up. Grr.

  12. Jessie on November 6th, 2006 6:26 am

    Awesome. I love conversations like that. Although we’re not allowed to have them when I’m driving as I am unable to laugh hysterically and steer a car at the same time.

  13. stormy on November 6th, 2006 6:58 am

    NO deal! Thwack! *i am so needing new underoos*

  14. Jennifer on November 6th, 2006 7:01 am

    Good point, JB.. beavers would be kind of sucky pets, wouldn’t they?

    But, a marmot, on the other hand… now THAT would be a cool pet!

  15. katie d on November 6th, 2006 8:01 am

    ROFL; excellent! i love conversations like that. and not just coz now i have a big silly grin on my face and can start the day all giddy and stuff, either. just, you know, coz they’re fun. :)

  16. warcrygirl on November 6th, 2006 8:01 am

    Everyone deserve a little beaver. And some tail whacking.

  17. Ang on November 6th, 2006 8:14 am

    What does a beaver sound like, anyway?

  18. Melissa on November 6th, 2006 8:52 am

    This is precisely the kind of ridiculous conversation that happens in every good marriage.


  19. wordgirl on November 6th, 2006 8:56 am

    I always thought the texture of beaver tails was sort of creepy. Now, I may never eat waffles again.

  20. Sonia on November 6th, 2006 10:22 am

    OMG! Haaaaa! I’m crying ovah he-yah!

  21. angela on November 6th, 2006 11:50 am

    heee, waffle prints.

  22. Jennifer on November 6th, 2006 11:52 am

    Ahhh, that’s sweet. You two crazy kids are totally made for each other.

  23. kimblahg on November 6th, 2006 12:16 pm

    oh god it is really bad if you substitute the mammal type beaver for the nasty female genitalia term beaver for that whole conversation. damn you dirty mind!

  24. telegirl on November 6th, 2006 1:00 pm

    You two are hilarious! I totally expected your car conversation to go in the gutter. Am a little disappointed it didn’t. But! God bless warcrygirl… :o)

  25. fifi on November 6th, 2006 3:46 pm

    sen on a joiners’ van in Glasgow “Kiss a beaver today”.

  26. Luck O' the Irish on November 6th, 2006 5:53 pm

    Imagine show and tell at your son’s school! Riley brought in his pet BEAVER! Free waffle imprints for all the kids HAHA. And OMG, I just remembered that the doctor who delivered my sister was Dr. Harry Beaver. I’ve seen the birth certificate…it was hilarious when she was old enough to get it.

  27. Magpie on November 6th, 2006 7:15 pm

    So how’s that cussing jar coming along? :D

  28. Eliot on November 6th, 2006 10:28 pm

    Okay, that seriously made me laugh out loud. “No deal. Whack!”

    Oh, and Irish – my friend had Harry Beaver as a doctor, too! We laughed everytime we talked about him.
