So, this happened. I’m sharing for two reasons:
- Hannah is as weird as I am, and that’s awesome. Her Twitter handle is @feellikepdiddy, which is about to become extremely relevant. (C’mon, you know that song!)
- The Vegemite people talked to us!
Aren’t we adorable?
The second-best thing to happen yesterday is that J called me from his car, and tried to plug his phone in to charge while we were talking. For some unknown reason, his phone took that as a cue to play music from iTunes, and he couldn’t stop it without hanging up. So there we stayed, with me intent on recounting the entire Vegemite story and J not laughing nearly as much as he should have and, the whole time, the resounding chords of “Red and Black” from Les Miz were playing at a furiously high volume in the background:
Jennie: “So then they said, “What about crisp apple strudel? They totally played the game!”
RED! THE BLOOD OF ANGRY MEN!
J: “But wait, so then who brought up Scar?”
BLACK! THE DARK OF AGES PAST!
Jennie: “Hannah did! Because she’s hilarious. And then we got into deep Illuminati politics.”
RED! A WORLD ABOUT TO DAWN!
J: “Listen. I love you so much. So much. But this conversation is the most annoying experience of my entire life. I have to go before I run someone over in a French Rebellion-fueled rage.”
BLACK! THE NIGHT THAT ENDS AT LAST!
