A Short Play in Which We Laugh at Stupid Jokes.

Setting: Austin, Texas. The two of us are walking downtown. We are drunk on doughnuts. Everything is making us laugh.

—————

Act I.

Rand: Well, that’s just ridiculous. They obviously meant ‘Parking.’ Not ‘Cocktails.’

—————

Act II.

Rand: I was going to move there.

Me: Really.

Rand: Yeah, but I just never got around to it.

—————

Act III.

Rand: What do you think that company does?

Me: It’s … it’s for when your pet witnesses a crime and is going to turn state’s evidence.

Rand: Oh, god …

Me: And so your pet needs a new identity, and they give him one. If he’s like, a schnauzer, he becomes a corgi. And the dog’s like, “But I’m not a corgi,” and the feds are like, “YOU ARE EITHER A LIVE CORGI OR A DEAD SCHNAUZER.”

—————

The End.

      Thank you! I thought so, too, but I’m totally biased because I always think I’m hilarious.

  • Act 3 for the win. Promptly send me some of whatever donuts you were on?, please and thank you.

  • Take note: if you ask your husband if you can move to NYC roughly four dozen times, he will start to cave a little.
  • Incredible reading by the love of my life to a packed room at NeueHouse Madison Square. So proud of you, @randderuiter, and the amazing emcee work by @michaeliconking.
  • Re-posting this photo that @wilreynolds took of us and his youngest near the beach outside of Lisbon. We're back home now, and I can't decide what I miss more: this little guy and his brother, or Portugal. Actually, scratch that. I know.
  • This place looks like a damn fairy tale.
  • Lunch with a view of the water, and some of the best seafood of my life.
  • The entire drive from Sintra to Lisbon looks like this. It's just miles of blue sky and rocky beaches.
  • No filter. This is just what Sintra looks like.
  • This street artist does amazing collages of animals from hunks of discarded plastic he collects (part of an effort to raise awareness about some of the most vulnerable victims of pollution). They're all over Lisbon, but we managed to get a close up view of this one.
  • Thousand watt smile on the little dude, and I am done.
  • Those eyes though.
