My wife purchased a new laptop satchel/messenger bag a couple of days ago.
The tag on the side said it was “Kahkai” coloured.
So my wife and me, being who we are, latched on to the “Kahkai” and have been crowing it loudly like the Snipe in the Pixar film Up! ever since.
I have a very nice green-ish/tan camera bag made by Pelican that my wife wants to take with her on a trip.
She asks “Do you know where the Pellegrino bag is?”
“Do you mean the KAHKAI! one?” I ask.
“Wait I mean the Penguin bag. Uh Pellegrino bag. Is it Penguin or Pellegrino?”
“I sound like an ijit.” she responded.
“The KAKHAI! Pellgrino bag is below the printer. The Penguin bag is behind the door.” I smiled.
No really, it was immensely funny. You should’ve been there.
And when I try to explain to people what “love” is, this is it.
It is “us.”
And people who have never experienced a moment of “us” with another person don’t really understand what it means to connect with another person deeply enough that the stupidest joke makes complete sense.
