However one particular night she woke up with a brilliant idea. It was actually slightly startling. There I sat on the computer, toiling away at youtube and suddenly I hear "Jenn. I have an idea"
So I look over and let her explain her ingenious idea to me.
"What if we got a cardboard cutout of the pope and put it against the window and wrote "The pope is watching you smoke" to the kids at the sizzling bridge?" I stared at her, half confused by what the hell she had just said, and the other half was slightly amazed. This idea sounded slightly amazing, if only because the kids down there are noisy even when I'm trying to go to bed.
For a momment, there was silence. Before I simply said "I"m looking up how much they cost right now."
Did you guys know a cutout of the pope costs 40 dollars? Yet Jesus is only 20. Why yes, i did spent the majority of the rest of my night looking up cutouts, what kinds are available, how much they cost and other silly things like that.
We also discussed the fact we could dress the pope up for every occasion. Halloween, Christmas, Hell he could even be the Easter Bunny.
Alas, neither of us really want to splurge 40 dollars for a cutout pope. So until then, there is nothing sitting in the window. But one day...one day...
