i realized i was veering toward the mentally absurd. obviously i was sort of dreaming, because these were the only two things i could think of and, while funny, they seem like random things to dredge from my psyche:
this exact garfield comic is the first time i realized that you can laugh so hard you are dizzy. i reread these panels dozens and dozens of times, obviously. it took me just 12 minutes of trolling the garfield.com archives to find it. apparently, i followed early 80s garfield plotlines like they were my pre-pubescent version of dynasty.
and this scene from the movie "dirty, rotten scoundrals," which i saw with fannie in the theater. you would be hard pressed to attend a sleepover with us in those waning pre-high school days where one of us didn't bust out a manic "oklahoma! oklahoma! oklahmoa!"
