The Phenomenon of America’s Funniest Home Videos (or: Golden Showers)

Is that it’s only funny if I watch it with Ben. Men getting kicked in the crotch, I could take it or leave it on my own. Men getting kicked in the crotch next to Ben = hilarious. Why? I don’t know. That’s what makes it a phenomenon.

This is probably as good a place as any to mention that yesterday the very cutest white fluffy puppy came running up to me, so I bent down to pet him and like dogs will do, he immediately rolled over onto his back so I could scratch him on the tummy. I obliged, but almost as soon as I did, he started squirting pee straight up in the air! I thankfully pulled back just in time, but I wonder if I’d have laughed as much if Ben hadn’t been there. Anyway, given that I don’t have a video camera on me at all times, I didn’t get it on film or I could have maybe won ten thousand dollars.

i have this friend, jeff. we dated for three months. we were (sometimes, i still feel like we are, but it's shifted) incredibly in love. one day, it seemed like we just weren't.

anyway, i feel like that about him. like things are just in a different light around him. like things are just brighter or more funny or just rounder or sharper.

i highly doubt that i will marry jeff. i still haven't even kissed a girl. but, i think that what you have captured here is what probably makes ben just exactly the right person for you to be married to.
