I occasionally make statements that I later kind of marvel at. I once said that I keep frosting in my fridge for “cupcake related emergencies” and that one time that I said “I don’t feel so good, I think I need a cocktail…I mean cough syrup.” But the other day, upon viewing the commercial for the new animated film “Meet the Robinsons” I laughed and said “Well, you know me, I’m a sucker for a T. Rex joke.”
Really. How often does anyone say that? And I do mean the dinosaur, not the band, although if you made a good Marc Bolan joke, I’d probably like that too. Actually, someone did and I laughed. So there.
I do have a bit of a dinosaur thing. But only because I really like the way they look. I don’t care much about the science of them, I never wanted to dig them up, I just think they are cool looking. But I don’t like lizards. Go figure.
My favorite dino is actually the stegosaurus. I even sing a song about him from time to time. I thought I was the only person who knew that song until Emily mentioned singing a stego song on her blog. I asked her if this was it:
Funny looking dinosaur
For on your back are many bony plates
And on your tail there’s more!
It was. And I was glad to know that I wasn’t the only one who wanders around singing it.
Anyway…dinosaurs are good. Monkeys are too. Monkeys punching dinosaurs? Brilliant.
