Reciprocating their hospitality, we invited The Wife Who Snorted (and the rest of the family) to dinner over the weekend.
I'm starting to think that snorting might be a theme in our relationship with this couple.
During dinner, The Mayor decided to discuss the finer points of the film Bambi with the couple's nine year old son.
"We have the movie Bambi," he said. "Have you seen it?"
The nine year old had not.
"It's about deer," The Mayor told him.
"Oh," the nine year old brightened. "Is that like, Bambi, Jungle Queen?"
There was a pregnant pause before the snorting started.
The Wife Who Snorts somehow managed to say,
"Uh, no. Bambi Jungle Queen is a different movie ENTIRELY."
Which was followed by uncontrollable grown up snorting and laughter.
"Why is that so funny?" the children demanded.
We couldn't answer them.
We were too busy imagining how Thumper might be portrayed in this alternate version of the enduring classic.
Bow chicka BAMBI!
