Irving considers himself a dare-devil, but’s always been a couple bales short of a wagonload.

What’s he done now?

You ever hear of the “Lawn-chair pilot”?


He wanted to do that but didn’t have no balloons.

What’d he do?

Attached a kite made from newspaper to a chair, put it on a toboggan and rode down Miller’s Hill.

That ends in a drop to the lake.


What happened?

Darn near broke his neck, drown and froze to death simultaneously.

Guess that learned him.

Nope.  He wants to do it again, soon’s he gets his chair off the ice.

    Psychologists say that trial and error learning is the most effective form of learning, provided you don’t kill yourself in the process D:
    I love the way you’ve written this, Trent. That conversation sounds so authentic and portrays so much about Vincent second-hand.

      I’ll ask Irving if he wants to be an award winning “pilot”. You’re right, with his hair on fire and a bigger hill, he just might win the “prestigious” Darwin Award for this year ;)

      You’re not having luck with FF this week, are you? ;) First your tale about a dealer in death being met with a romance, and now Rochelle beating you to the punch(line). Yep, boys will be boys. Thanks Dale.
