Occasionally (as in, maybe 8 times a week), I will think of something from my past that will cause me to burst into uncontrollable laughter and disturb and confuse nearby friends and family.

Last night, I lost my mind at the thought of the following drawing, made by my brother, when he was many years younger:

I hadn’t recently seen this drawing or anything. I just remembered Louis’ rather intricate rendering of an Imperial AT-ST Chicken Walker from Star Wars, coupled with his “best guess” spelling of its name (I think you pronounce that “Chy-sin Wall-ser”) and couldn’t do anything but laugh for about 12 solid minutes. Seriously- I was making horrible gurgling noises and had tears rolling down my face as I tried to explain to an understandably alarmed Paul what was all of a sudden so funny.

It took awhile, but this picture explained everything.

    OMG…I have been teaching little kids too long. It NEVER even occurred to me that it wasn’t spelled ‘chicken walker’!!! I read it correctly right off the bat. Sigh.
