Doesn’t Do It Justice

AARON

What’s going on?

BROOKE SHIELDS

Well, he’s just got lights EVERYWHERE. He- well, let me just take a photo. SCOTT! SCOTT! I’M GOING TO GO OUT AND TAKE A PHOTO OF THE GRISWOLD’S HOUSE. He can’t hear me. Oh well. Did I tell you the president of BYU is staying at my house? GEEZ it’s freezing.

AARON

How cold, like 60?

BROOKE SHIELDS

It was 54 degrees when I got in an hour ago, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

AARON

Mom, did you say the president of BYU is staying at your house? Not the vice president or the alumni president?

BROOKE SHIELDS

NO AARON, BYU doesn’t have any Vice Presidents. Hang on one second. Let me take a picture. You’re not going to believe this.

AARON

And he’s staying at the house?

BROOKE SHIELDS

YES Aaron. He’s coming down for the Rose Bowl. I’m sending it to you now.

AARON

And why do you have to decorate? Your house looks fine. I was home last month. Is it gonna be BYU themed?

BROOKE SHIELDS

No. Goodness no. Are you kidding me? Did you get it?

AARON

You should get a bunch of little BYU football ornaments! Little helmet ornaments! Put them up all over the tree! You should run a blue and white banner across the- oh, I think I got it-

BROOKE SHIELDS

NO, Aaron, I’m too classy for that. Much too classy.

AARON

Looks like he got the neighbor in on it.

BROOKE SHIELDS

Oh, no, that’s all one house.

AARON

WHAT? It looks like two houses to me.

BROOKE SHIELDS

No, it’s one house, that dark gap is the driveway. His house continues on the other side. Brrrrrrrr, IT’S COLD!

AARON

Wow.

BROOKE SHIELDS

But he does have the neighbor across the street involved. See how the lights are going across there?

AARON

Wow. You should see some of the houses out here. They have tropical themes, I think it’s because they hate the winter.

BROOKE SHIELDS

That’s so depressing. So depressing. I can’t think of anything more depressing. SCOTT! SCOTT! He has his headphones on and he’s reading a book. He can’t hear a word I say. This is what we do. SCOTT! Aaron doesn’t believe that it’s only one house. I sent him a picture of the Griswold’s.

SCOTT

Tell him the picture doesn’t do it justice.

  1. Well – doesn’t your “transcript” of our conversation make me look like a big dumb crazy loon. While I won’t protest the crazy, I know I’m not completely gone, as that innacurate report would imply. But I’m trying not to be as defensive, so I’ll stop here.

  2. I actually felt that transcript did “do it justice” as I could imagine you saying that word for word!

    And when is the President of BYU staying at the house? He’s not going down with Colton is he? That seems weird.

  3. The “report” is “innacurate” as Brooke Shields claims, because The mediocre 7-5 Cougars are playing San Diego State in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl on Dec. 20. Since the above is now a piece of art, I exercised the creative license that God gave to me and used Rose Bowl.

    The rest of the piece is “uncannily” accurate.

  4. Amazing! Nailed it! I like the part where Scott is reading and listening to head phones!!! What!? Oh wait… Completely seen that! Funny!

  5. Thanks to SFSF’s manager, Julie, for proofreading “doesn’t do it justice.” We don’t do a lot of proofreading at the blog, but it was invaluble here.

  6. I don’t like any of you. If Scott knew how to access blogs and he wasn’t so busy listening to his book while he does the day’s crossword, I’m sure he would express the same sentiment. And I have to deal with the knowledge that I’m a loon, since everyone seems to be in agreement about the accuracy of Aaron’s account of our conversation.

  7. Troy – Colton married the Dean’s daughter. Colton is coming to San Diego for the Poinsettia Bowl and they are all staying at our home. If I haven’t been committed by then, I’ll take plenty of pics. It’s been my pleasure to be part of such an entertaining blog post. Aaron – I hope Santa doesn’t forget you this year.

  8. I really miss hanging out with GWAr and listening to his phone conversations with his mom! They usually ended when she would abruptly hang up without a goodbye. 🙂
