News from the Upper Valley
Finally, proof that the Patrick Swayze/Jennifer Grey combo drives people insane. Nobody puts Baby in a corner! Give me some percocet!
Conversation I had with my sister while we were driving out to the stores:
AMY: Did you read The Valley News today?
A: There was a pretty weird article-
B: About the Canadian Prime Minister seeing a UFO?
A: What? No, there was... The Canadian Prime Minister saw a UFO?
B: Yeah. An Unidentified Flying Object. He was on a plane and saw it out the window.
A: But... I mean, it wasn't like an alien UFO, was it?
B: I don't know. He apparently saw something bright falling through the sky. Other people on the plane saw it, too.
A: It was probably a meteorite or something.
B: I don't know. He said he's never seen anything like it.
A: ... Huh...
B: What were you going to say about The Valley News?
A: Oh, there was this article about a high speed chase from Enfield to Hanover. This guy was demanding percocet from a pharmacy. They wouldn't give it to him and he drove away. A cop tried to pull him over but he sped up and ended up crashing into two cars up by the hospital.
B: [tsking] Idiot.
A: Yeah, but here's the thing: The Valley News apparently deemed it news-worthy to report that on the drivers seat of the guy's Explorer was a copy of the movie Dirty Dancing.
A: Yeah. I mean, I don't know why it's in the article. I think it's a clue or something.
B: Dirty Dancing?
A: Yeah. Can you believe it?
B: That's so weird.
Later at home, after Amy buys to paper to clip the article and send to Patrick Swayze...
A: Oh crap.
A: It says here that it was a "compact disk" from the movie... Does that mean the soundtrack?
A: I thought it was the DVD. Huh. Maybe it was Patrick Swayze's singing that drove the man to painkillers?
