How About a 97 Saturn?

Imagine a quasit...

So, we bravely traded in our 97 Saturn today for a...







...97 Saturn. What? Are we idiots you ask? Yes, I answer. But that is beside the point. Our old car had 88,000+ miles and our new has 66,000+. Our old car was a manual transmission (which my wife is currently untrained on) and the new one is automatic. The old? Cassette and so-so speakers. The new? CD with equalizer and good speaks. The old? Low-end sedan. The new? Station wagon.

So the numbers came out right and we have side-graded to a different car that more closely fits the family needs. To pay for the difference, we are selling Ladybug's 2000 Geo Metro to her sister who is teaching at 3 (count 'em, three) universities this fall.

So there we are. With a quasit.

Hey, I want royalties for that! Besides, I think there's a Type VI Demon in there, too.

You will get paid when you can define a goober as it pertains to the properly astericized name...

Relatively Exact:

I'd say "goober" is most definitely the most appropriate term for the properly astericized name in question.

But he is charming, because he eats three bowls of cereal every day. Ask DewKid.

Still, shooting holes in his living room window with a BB gun and scaring his mother shyteless was a bit much, even for Seymour.

Anyway, you were saying about the Saturn...

Actually, a Goober refers to spitting, letting a stalactite form of spittle, and then vacuuming it back into the mouth in a way that I am sure would disgust all parties involved now. D*v*, Dewkid, and I were in a program called Summer Recreation together and we hung out doing weird stuff like that instead of being sociable. We didn't know at the time that we would reconvene in high school to do different weird stuff like giving cops chewing tobacco at the local park.

It was tremendous fun.

I thought a goober was the semi solid stuff?...Ideal for balistic trajectories with a minimum of splatter!

Normally, yes...but these Goobers were seen through the eyes of grade school kids and sometimes we had to grab words that were handy.

Eatin' goober peas, yeah,

You boys are SICK.

I eat my Goober peas with honey,
I've done it all my life,
It makes the peas taste funny,
but it keeps them on my knife.

(Goober was added to the poem to stay on topic)
