Steve: It would be really hard to bust a pimple in this mirror.
Zack: If you use the mirror to remove a botfly larva when it pops out it will look just like your favorite flavor of jellybean!
Steve: Aw! I saw a video where they took one of those out of some guy's head and it looked like a little baby man. It had a face and everything.
Zack: What did the face look like?
Steve: It had a crying mouth and sad eyes and a pencil thin mustache that went all the way around its mouth. And it had a split tongue, but not like a snake, it was like this girl I saw a picture of on some website of weird tattoo pictures.
Zack: You did not see a video where that happened.
Steve: I meant I dreamed I watched a video of that happening, because I saw a video on Liveleak of a botfly, but I didn't click it because that's gross. I didn't want to see a little baby man with a mustache get pulled out of some guy's head.
Zack: Uhhhhh, getting back to the mirror, I have to say I don't understand its function.
Steve: Self-esteem. It's important even in D&D.
Zack: Is there a stat for it?Steve: It's sort of Charisma.
Zack: "Roll to see if your botched showing in the combat forces you into a spiral of overeating and poor body image."
Steve: That's not how it works.
Zack: "Roll bend bars/drop panties for all the wrong guys."
Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
