If any of you have ever made the drive from Arizona to Utah, you'll know that you have to pass over the Glen Canyon Dam.
And if you've ever driven over a dam, you've probably made a dam joke.
You know what I'm talking about....the dam Visitor's Center, the dam tourists, the dam tour guide, dam pictures, etc.
on our trip to Utah earlier this month, we were driving over the dam and snickering at the dam wordplay.
"Watch out for all these dam tourists on the road!"
"Anyone need to use the bathroom? We could stop at the dam visitor's center!"
And so on. So hilarious.
Just as we were crossing the dam, my sister Sarah's phone rang. It was our other sister, Jenna. While I was obviously not a participating member of the conversation, I still got the idea, and have reconstructed said conversation here:
S: Hi Jenna.
J: Hi Sarah. How's the drive?
J: Where you guys at?
S: Just driving over the dam.
J: Oh really? Cool. Well I'm calling to see if I can borrow your dam car. (She was no doubt chuckling at her cleverness.)
S: Jenna, you can't say -
J: But I need to borrow your car! Are you still at the dam? Where are your dam keys?
S: Jenna! Just because we're at the dam doesn't mean you can put "dam" in front of everything!
J: Oh. Well, can I borrow your car?
Bahahahaha. I sort of thought this was hilarious.
But perhaps you have to know my lovely sister Jenna to really appreciate it. You know, the girl who was sure that the phrase "might as well" was actually "mineaswell" (one word), who was convinced that she was stuck in an elevator before realizing (after 15 minutes) that she hadn't pushed the button, and who asked if a football game would still be considered an "upset" if everyone was happy about it.
Those are just some of my favorite Jenna-isms. I just love her to pieces.
