A Jurl Conversation

Last Friday I drove my mother, cousin Ann, Ann's sister Wilma and my four year old to Arkansas for the family reunion. An hour in this conversation occurred:

Ann: Did ya'll see David Letterman with...oh, what's his name? He was in that movie...??? You know....

Me: Oh, yeah, THAT MOVIE.

Mother: What was the name of the movie?

Ann: Uh...it was one word....

Me: That narrows it down, Ann.

Mom: Was it funny or sad?

Ann: It was funny...

Me: Someone please kill me.

Wilma: Oh, yeah the one with the box of chocolates in it?

Me: Forrest Gump?

Ann: Oh! And I said it was one word! Tee Hee. That's two words.

Mom: I love that movie.

Wilma: Now, who was in that....

Me: Tom Hanks. You're talking about Tom Hanks?

Ann: Oh, it was Billy Crystal!

Me: Billy Crystal! Where did he come from?

Ann: He was on David Letterman!

Me: Why were we talking about Forrest Gump?

Wilma: I don't know. I guess I thought that's what Ann was talking about....

Ann: He had this donkey......

Mom: A donkey!

Ann: Yes, a donkey. Because he was promoting some movies that were coming out together....you know those three movies he was in...

Wilma: Oh, he was...

Mom: What movies?

Ann: Well, let me see...

Me: CITY SLICKERS!

Mom, Ann, and Wilma: Ooooh!!

Tip of the iceberg, people. Tip. Of. The. Iceberg.
