Anyway, that conversation led us to one in which Eric was comparing and contrasting Phyllis Diller, Carol Channing, and Carmen Miranda. I confessed that I didn't know who Carmen Miranda was, and Eric was amazed at my ignorance.
He then went on to give me a play by play of a scene from one of Carmen's movies, complete with intricate details regarding a whole bunch of gigantic bananas maneuvered in synchronization by a whole cadre of long-legged, lipstick-clad women. Listening to that description was pure silliness, which is another way of saying pure magic.
And then, just in case his descriptions hadn't done justice, he scoured the internet and found me these seven minutes of delight:
Now, that's what I call love.
(and silliness--pure and unadulterated silliness)
(have I used the phrase "pure silliness" enough in this post yet?)
(three videos in one week--that's definitely a record here)
(no videos next week . . . promise)
