And this is one of the many reasons why she is incredible.
(this entry works better if you red it aloud. It works better still if you take a couple of tequila shots and then read it aloud.)
(pause while Trixie explains to buck what exactly hoodoos are. Ah.)
Trixie: Do you think those hoodoos could be haunted?
Trixie: You know, hoodoos are often haunted. In Haiti, that would make them Voodoo hoodoos. I know you're keen to climb these ones here, but would you do voodoo hoodoos?
Buck: ...I don't know.
(time goes by)
Trixie: do you think you could climb with someone on your back?
Buck: It would be hard, but I could manage. I'm very skilled. Is this going to be about the voodoo hoodoos again?
Trixie: You could carry a small African tribe member. Like a hutu.
Buck: so you mean climb the voodoo hoodoo with a hutu?
...Or a Tutsi.
Buck: Would this be a voodoo practicing tutsi? would the tutsi and the hutu voodoos climb the hoodoo with me, or would there be a new do for each hoodoo?
Trixie: The tutsi could stay at home.
Buck: uh huh. so I'd climb the voodoo hoodoo with a hutu --
Trixie: --wearing a tutu.
Buck: but of course. The tutsti has no tutu and so can't climb the voodoo hoodo with you-know-who?
Buck: What if the tutsi had a hoodie? could a tutsi in a hoodie climb a voodoo hoodoo with me and a tutu in a hutu?
Trixie: er... that would be a hutu in a tutu. The tutu is the grass skirt, you see.
Buck: (slightly defensively) but maybe the tutu wears the hutu... I mean clothes do make the man - or the hutu - and if it's a voodoo tutu, then.... okay, this isn't flying is it?
Buck: OKay. Back to the hutu in the tutu climbing the voodoo hoodoo while the tutsi in the hoodie stays at home.... could the tutsi be a voodoo tutsi too? Is he not going because he thinks the hoodoo is bad juju with it's voodoo vibes?
Trixie: I guess the hutu doesn't have to wear a tutu.
Buck: It might be draughty on some of these voodoo hoodoos of yours you know.
Trixie: Right. So, maybe the hutu could wear a mumu.
Buck: the tutu in a mumu?
Trixie: I told you, the tutu is the skirt. The hutu would wear the mumu.
Buck: Damn. Still, if you were on a hoodoo in a mumu instead of a tutu you might still find it draughty even if you were a hutu. Is there hutu voodoo for making your tutu less draughty on the hoodoo, and if so would it affect the mumu, or would the mumu be more see-through to the wind blowing through the mumu while the hutu was on the hoodoo? might it even blow the hutu off the hoodoo?
Trixie: you could let the tutsis wear the tutu's not used by the hoodoo climbing hutus in mumus
Buck: Especially if they turned out to be new blue mumus.
Trixie: right. But the see through mumus were kinkier, even if the wind blew through them. I think the tutsis in the hoodies would be more likely to come and watch hutus in see through mumus climbing hoodoos than voodoo tutu wearing mumus or tutsis of even voodoo hutus and tutsis all in new blue mumus.
Buck: or hoodies. I like hoodies because they are very n1nj4. we could have hutus in hoodies over their new blue mumus
....I am sadly too tuckered out to finish this, So I can't get to the denouement: hutus and tutsis in mumus with hoodies looking for rootin' tootin' tutus on voodoo hoodoos drinking their yoohoo milk drinks. Or something like that.
Maybe you had to be there, I dunno.
