Overheard on E-mail

From a friend-of-a-friend:

I don't know a single soul that hasn't enjoyed a good "Meemaw" yarn from time to time. Whether she will curl up with a big African or ponder the mystery of convex glass and why the fish gets bigger when it gets to the other side of the bowl is anyone's guess. Here is her latest which will eventually appear in that book of quotes I've been working on:

I went to visit mom and dad yesterday and Meemaw comes over. Thankfully, too as dad was watching a violent movie about a magician or some shit with Scott Bakula in it. I think we all know how much I hate that prick. He cheapens film.

At any rate, dad turns on Blue Planet, that National Geographicy type show. There are all these walruses and a polar bear attacking one of them. Meemaw goes "look at that bear playin' with those Wallaces." Yes, Wallaces. The bear is obviously trying to eat Wallace's head and she's still "awww, that bear just wants to play." Uh, he just tore that Wallace's eye out, Meemaw.
