"I've gotta have more people in my life that love my elbows."
or click here"Well let's face it: I'm so good looking, even my bacteria are cute."
Karen's notes: Try pinching the wrinkly bit of skin on the outside of your elbow. Now pinch harder. Really, really hard. Dig the nails in, even. It doesn't hurt, right? That's because there are no pain receptors there.
My husband whimpers like a little girl when I pinch there, insisting that he is in agony. Sissy.
|KAREN:||"I need more people in my life who love my elbows."|
|ADAM:||Or at least people who don't abuse my elbows.|
|KAREN:||Who abu— Oh.|
|KAREN:||It's not my fault that you have nerves in a place that it is medically impossible to have pain receptors. Where are they?|
|KAREN:||No, I'm gonna love them! (singing) I love you, my elbows... Hello elbow. Where's the other one?|
|ADAM:||On my other arm.|
|KAREN:||Oh, bring it over.|
|ADAM:||I can't without twisting myself in an uncomfortable position.|
|KAREN:||Just bring it over! Come on, don't be selfish with your elbow. How do you think that other elbow's feeling?|
|ADAM:||Right now? Tired.|
|KAREN:||Give it to me. No, it wants also to be loved... Where is it?|
|ADAM:||That's not my elbow!|
|KAREN:||I can't find your elbow! Here it is. (singing) Elbow.... Well that little part of your arm probably also needs to be loved.|
|ADAM:||I don't think my body is split up into little individual conscious elements.|
|KAREN:||Shows what you know.|
|ADAM:||You're trying to say that every little bit of my body is a separate little conscious being?|
|KAREN:||Bring it here.|
|ADAM:||What are you doing?|
|KAREN:||Give me the other one.|
|ADAM:||Oh, the one actually just told me it wants to go back to sleep!|
