Bambi Jungle Queen


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!

Sadie said...

Hahahahaha!

After dinner, if you walk in our neighborhood the euphoric squeals of, "Do me daddy!" can be heard. Try as we might we can't convince either girl to say, "My turn," as Daddy twirls them around the room during their post-meal dancing.

Wendy said...

Oh, yes! Thumper with his extra big....er, paws.

Oh, yes, you MUST be the coolest because you have the funniest friends. I'd love to have friends like that!

(Need to go look up Erin who's in Utah - maybe she wants to be friends since we are both so jealous of your friends!)

I also want to know how the 9-year-old knows about such a movie.

And I agree that you need to hang on to these people-- you'll have a steady stream of blog posts, if nothing else.
