I have a drawer in my kitchen where random things that were "lost" show up sometimes.
Recently I overheard someone say "I'm sorry for your loss" to a bereaved woman.
I understand the human nature part of that.
The part where we don't want to let go of a loved one.
We'd like them to just be "lost" to us for a while.
But wouldn't it be funny if that lady's Springer spaniel showed up in my kitchen drawer?
This thought occurred to me while I was stretching this morning.
But I totally heard Conan say it in my head.
And I laughed.
Then I decided that it was too mean for me to say onblog, but to say that Conan said it in my head?
But the funny thing?
Jon Stewart could say the exact same thing, but substitute "Grandmother" for "Springer spaniel."
And nobody would hate him for it.
The fewer freckles you have the closer to the edge you can take your comedy.
And it probably helps that Jon has that cute little tush.
