I was emailing with Sitcom Kelly today. Lest you forget, she’s the one that wants to dig a special Silence of the Lambs pit in her basement in the hopes of populating it with Penguins defenseman Kris Letang. I described that story as part of a post last year. The Pit evolved out of one of our emails too and it became a staple of the “Sitcom” about her life.
We had another email thread that started as a party discussion and ended with no one at her party except her, a pan of ziti and Letang, of course, who was already in The Pit. You can see that post here.
So today, when the Puck Huffers featured this new pic of Kris Letang, I had to share it with Sitcom Kelly. It went like this:
“Ere’s looking at you, dere, Si’com Ke-lee.”
SK: Funny, I was just reading a blog about my purpose in life. And there it is.
Bluz: That’s the “Will you pleeeeeeease let me out of this Pit” look.
SK: “If you let me out, I’ll promise to love you forever.”
Bluz: (as SK) “No, you’ll just run away again. You’ll be much happier right were you are.
SK: “Now shut up and eat your ziti.”
I was on the floor.
Later in the day, she sent me a link to NFL Shop online, where they’re selling small bottles of water made from the melted ice of the last rink surface at Mellon Arena. Ginny at That’s Church had mentioned this last week. For what it’s worth, I think it’s a great idea. Not for $39.99 though. Do we reeeeeally know that it’s not just tap water in a commemorative bottle?
So I answered back:
Bluz: PittGirl was talking about that last week… first appeared for 5.99, then disappeared from the site. That would have been a heck of a bargain.
I love the idea though. Can just see SK dabbing some on before a game.
SK: Have to do a DNA test to make sure Kris Letang’s sweat is in there somewhere.
Bluz: It sponges the sweat from off its brow, if it would like some ziti now…”
She didn't respond to that one, but obviously, she should be able to harvest some Letang sweat right from the source.
Note: OK, now I know I may be pushing this “Letang in the Pit” theme a bit too hard. When I did the Google image search (Silence of the Lambs Girl in the Pit) to find the base for that last shot, the picture of Letang I shot 2 years ago, and used in prior posts, showed up on page 3. God, I love running jokes!
