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.
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?
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.
Hahaha! Oh my goodness, I’m not sure he needs more ideas… fabulous as that is!
omg- carboy is nuts.
Needed a smile today, got it from the post. Have to share!
Thank you! Always happy to share a smile 😀
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?!?!?!
when I first saw the post title, I was confused. Navel lint? I just kept thinking “tumble driers”, but then I read this and it totally made my day. 😀 Thank you!
