I got nuttin (except a joke)

Still brain dead from work. Maybe tomorrow (or Sunday) I'll post something 'thoughtful' about a couple of books I'm reading. In the meantime, I thought I'd throw some fun your way:

Alice and Frank are Bungee-jumping one day. Alice says to Frank, you know, we could make a lot of money running our own Bungee-jumping service in Mexico" Frank thinks this is a great idea, so they pool their money and buy everything they'll need; a tower, an elastic cord, insurance, etc.

They travel to Guaymas, Mexico and begin to set up on the square. As they are constructing the tower, a crowd begins to assemble. Slowly, more and more people gather to watch them at work. When they had finished, there was such a crowd they thought it would be a good idea to give a demonstration.

So, Alice jumps. She bounces at the end of the cord, but when she comes back up, Frank notices that she has a few cuts and scratches. Unfortunately, he isn't able to catch her and she falls again, bounces and comes back up again. This time, she is bruised and bleeding.

Again, Frank misses her. Alice falls again and bounces back up. This time she comes back pretty messed up -- she's got a couple of broken bones and is almost unconscious. Luckily, Frank finally catches her this time and says, "What happened? Was the cord too long?"

Barely able to speak, Alice gasps, "No, the Bungee cord was fine...It was the crowd. What the hell is a piƱata?"

*wavies hi*

Thanks for the laugh! Hope you get some relaxing done this weekend;)

(I still haven't been able to read Play Dead yet - am skeered...)

I thought it was the bungee cord. :-P

Steph you should read Play Dead, it has a very evocative setting, but I wouldn't say it's scary at all. Oh, and about Odil (your comment in a previous post) You work on Jake's book, and I'll start working on Odil's again. ;-)

You know what it is - the fact that they're not dead but they can't do anything to help themselves...OMG - it freaks me out!

Odil and Jake are going to be the death of us, aren't they? *ggg*
