Sleeping Beauty’s Navel Lint

Carboy:  Do you need this jar?

Me: No. I was going to toss it in recycling.

Carboy: I’m taking it then.

Me:  What for?

Carboy: I’m going to use it to save my navel lint.

Me: What???

Carboy:  Don’t look at me like that. I got the idea from one of the ballet’s that you watch all the time.

Me:  You are infirmed.

Carboy:  That one where the cabin moose carries around a giant wad of navel lint on a stick and kills the princess with it.

Me:  You mean Carabosse in Sleeping Beauty where the princess stabs her finger on a knitting needle and falls asleep for a hundred years waiting for Manuel Legris to come?

Carboy:  Seriously? That’s the story? It’s better the way I tell it with a giant wad of navel lint on a stick which, you have to admit, is pretty cool.

Me:  Why would… what???

Carboy: I’ve been inspired by ballet and you’re complaining?!

Me:  No, no… I think I’ll put the Sleeping Beauty DVD on right now. Do you want the lid for that jar?

  1. He could make art with it. There was a woman on Oddities that made tiny teddy bears out of belly-button lint. It was disgusting and kind of cute at the same time.

  2. When I woke up, my blackberry was flashing with an email. It was this blog-post. I looked at it half asleep wondering what was going on. Then I burst out laughing and woke up the Hubby.

    This is a whole new angle for Sleeping Beauty.

    • That’s awesome! Thanks, that made me laugh!

      I know, right! Cabin moose kills the princess with a stick of navel lint… were we even watching the same ballet?!?!?!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
