Journal Excerpt: Clint Quotes from Beach Trip 2005

March 5, 2006 at 6:13 am 1 comment

Going through my journals tonight, I ran into some Clint quotes from the beach (August 2005).

When discussing all the inadvertantly nudity this trip:

I had told Carolyn and Clint they could use my bathroom whenever.  Well Monday I showered and came out into my room, fished for some clothes, went back into the privacy of my bathroom to get dressed.

When I came back out I noticed the balcony door was left cracked, so I closed it and locked it.

Suddenly I heard knocking.  Clint was out there smoking – he had been there the whole time.  He very well could have seen me nude.

When I told Mom that tale she said, “Oh my, that would have been a disaster!”

“Well,” Clint said, “I wouldn’t say ‘disaster'”.  He had a sly grin on his face.

A dinner conversation:

This evening we had pizza for supper and great conversation as usual.  At one point Maria was sharing why Samantha wasn’t named “Melanie”

“Tim said the nickname for Melanie was ‘Smelly Melly'”

From there we discussed names and how they were made fun of.

Timmy shared that his middle name (“Colley”) got some negative attention on that front.

Then we migrated to the famed Seinfeld episode where Jerry forgot the name of his girlfriend.  He found out that her name rhymed with a female body part, so Jerry and George brainstormed what it could be.  “Mulva” was their front runner.  It was revealed at the end, her name was “Delores”

So as we reminisced the classic episode Mark asked, “What was her name?”

“Delores!” we all repeated.

“I don’t get it,” Mark said, “What female body part does that rhyme with?  I was never able to figure it out.”

This was still officially supper and we all shied away from revealing the answer.

“I nominate you to field this one, Denise,” I said to new Denise.

She declined to enlighten Mark at the dinner table.

Timmy came to the rescue.  “Have you met Carolyn’s husband?” he asked Mark

“Yes,” Mark said.

“What’s his name?” Tim asked.

Mark didn’t have to utter “Clint”  Suddenly the answer was clear.

We all laughed so hard, Julie in the other room later inquired what had us in such an uproar.

Anyway, I shared that story with Clint today.

“Cool,” he said, “I’ve never been the crux of explaining a Seinfeld episode before.”

    Actually, my name can be bastardized to make two different female anatomy parts.

    And I stopped thinking it was funny in middle school.

    but .. YOUR post is funny, at least. 🙂
