Aragorn: “Gimli! I found your axe! Those neighborhood children have it!”
Jack Torrance: “Oh that’s right, I loaned it to their dad the other day.”
Blue: “Maybe they’ll give you a belly rub if you ask them nicely.”
Lulu: “Belly rubs and axes don’t mix.”
Java Bean (whispering): “How are we going to get out of this one? We have to go past them to get to the side exit.”
Aragorn (whispering): “Fear not my hobbit friend, for I have a plan.” (normal voice) “Tell me, children, and this is important … what is a ‘gherkin’?”
Creepy Twin #2: “A gherkin is a small pickle.”
Creepy Twin #1: “I thought a cornichon was a small pickle.”
Creepy Twin #2: “They’re both small pickles.”
Creepy Twin #1: “Then why do they have different names?”
Creepy Twin #1: “This says they’re basically the same thing.”
Creepy Twin #2: “No it doesn’t. It says cornichons are smaller and tarter. Learn how to read, why don’t you?”
Java Bean: “I had no idea you could get an entire book about tiny pickles.”
Aragorn: “Aye, ’tis a book of mysterious magic indeed.”
Lulu: “Speaking of booking …”
Some time later …
Creepy Twin #1: “Now look. Our playmates escaped.”
Creepy Twin #2: “More gherkins for us!”
Jack Torrance: “What’s going on in there? Did you catch the turkey or what?”

Does it cut like a knife?
Enjoy your EastKhoastVizitors!
I’ve often said there just has to be a “Dummies” book for everything at this point. (And now, I have a craving for gherkins…)
