and because, it's damn funny.
Okay, so I'm gonna start off with something less Kris appropriate, but still, my niece cracks me the f*ck up. She's reached that age where she "gets" adult humor. It's been pretty fun. This first thing has to do with Jeff Dunham. And if you don't know who he is, you are missing out seriously bad (Jefuhfuh Dunhahhhm dot commmmm---sing it with me, baby). Anyway, I decided to take her and her sister to a theme park a while ago (yes, I'm just getting around to this now, sue me) and it was sunny, hot weather.
On one of the rides, there was a long line that winds under a rock outcropping with water falling over it. She's standing with me, splashing water on her face then we move up. The guy right behind us has been elaborating on the safety of water dripping over light sources (which I totally understand) to his kid. He gets to the part where my niece had been playing in the water, which had dripped into a rock opening in the wall. The guy swishes his hand in there and says, "The air is a full four degrees cooler right here."
She looks at me, head cocked and does an eyeroll (the way only a young teen can) and says, "He knows because he's a walking thermometer.... On a steeeek."
OMG. Nearly peed myself!
Then, we went to this other ride. Her little sister had been eager to go and we got to the front of the line when the older one very casually says, "That water cooler is Canadian." I had a Whuh? moment and said, "How do you know?" She pointed to it and sent me a deadpanned look...
this is what I saw when I followed her finger:
If you don't get it, I'm not explaining. Ask Kris.
