mlah The “culture” that has evolved here isn’t conducive to sissies

so this girl who sits beside me at work today mentioned that her birthday is coming up. just a month or two.

then she drops the not so blatant hint that she expects to get to do some jello wrestling on her birthday.

imagine the oh, 14000 thoughts that went through my mind in the following second. mostly centered around how i could possibly help this poor girl in need and help her to realize her birthday wishes. the dilemna.

then i think about the logistics, like the cleanup and the problem of having refrigerator space necesary to chill that much jello. so i make the quick mental switch from jello to oil. and then i think about the cleanup from that, involving God only knows (100-150 gallons?) how much crisco i’d need. and the inevitability that a large part of it will wind up flowing down my driveway. the cleanup for that could be daunting.

so then i thought about good old fashioned mud. it’s realtively free. i mean it’s dirt. just add water!

so i made my proposal to birthday girl, and she said no, it had to be jello, because it’s just not the right birthday gift to get to lick mud from another girl’s body.

so jello it will be.

anybody want to come visit in august?


  1. What an odd request for a birthday gift! Jello wrestling. I think the oddest request I made was that people stfu and leave me alone. *shrugs*

  5. Actually it wouldn’t take as much jello as you would think. Probably only enough for a kiddie pool. Several large cake pans worth. You don’t need to be up to your waist or anything, just enough to get messy. Oh and I highly recommend lime jello. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Is she hot? I’ll wrestle in Jello with her! It might not be fair though, since i’ve done it before…

  8. How about chocolate pudding? It smears more nicely. Jello just seems like it would be clumpy and sort of gross. Chocolate pudding on the other hand, would cling and go nice places. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Use lime jello. There are good reasons for this, trust me.
