Slow Adventures in Slothville

Special Needs Sloth

Filed under: Boys, Slothyness — shhville @ 5:11 pm

Overheard on Harvard quad:

Warrior Steve: "I wonder how old Westminster Abbey is."

Sloth: "Durrrrrr…..I dunno."

Warrior Steve: "Like, a thousand years, maybe? I bet."

Sloth: "HAHAHA….as old as Jesus? I don't THINK so!!"


Sometimes I think I should just stick a chopstick in my ear and be done with it.

  2. It’s a good thing you waited until he loved you before you said this. This might be a first-date dealbreaker.

  3. Oh, sure, like the atheist ought to know how old Jesus is.

    (Probably you’ve researched the question already and have discovered answers here.)

  4. Just goes to show you we ALL say things we later wish we could erase, erase, erase!

    I once said “Nurses shouldn’t have to diagnose cardiac rhythms.” While this is in a way a legal statement, it sure is stupid to want an ER nurse who can’t recognize them! I felt sooo stupid after I said that!

  5. Once while driving, in Grand Forks, North Dakota, I told the man the batteries in the camera were nearly dead, and then suggested he keep a lookout for a Canadian Tire (hardware store).

    I’m surprised he didn’t leave me behind and sprint for the border.

  6. Well, since Jesus is everywhere and eternal and all, Westminster Abbey could be as old as Jesus. And Jesus can be older than Westminster Abbey. Since He’s God, everything is possible with him.

    So, as ususal, the woman in the relationship is indeed right.

  9. Good one.

    I bet Jesus is giving you the thumbs up on that one though. He looks young for his age. We all appreciate hearing that, you know?

  10. I like the way Vince came around to making the woman right. That’s brilliant thinking, if you ask me.

  11. Way brilliant, Vince! Much more brilliant than the schmuck who made the calendar and forgot to count the year “0” and then had the rest of it off so we should have celebrated the millenium in 1995 instead of 2000, what’s a thousand or so years for a Sloth?

  12. I hear hatpins work well in the through-the-ear category. But where ya gonna find a hatpin in this day and age.

  13. […] I do believe this puts me a step ahead of Sloth’s Westminster Abbey gaffe. ‘Cause at least she was dealing with math. No.0601 SENDER: The Retropolitan […]
