Eli 11.9 And The Punch Line

We were watching a Boston Bruins-New York Rangers playoff game last week.

In the pre-game, they showed fans walking into the stadium, and there was one guy wearing a Jaromir Jagr Boston Bruins jersey.

"Oh, that's great," I said.

"What?" Eli 11.9 asked.

"The Bruins traded for Jagr at the deadline, he probably won't play for them next season, and he hasn't scored a goal in the playoffs," I said. "But this guy ran out and spent $120 to buy his jersey."

"Money well spent, PLAYA!" Eli said, laughing.

For this next story, I need to explain that we have a non-word that's become a word. It's "festivate", and it's a combination of "festival" and "celebrate".

An acceptable variation is "festivation", in case you're wondering

Last Friday, we went to a local barbecue place, and in the same shopping center is a board game shop. On our way out after dinner, we passed a gaggle of guys from the board game shop standing outside, chatting and smoking.

"I know how they should describe this store," he said. He paused dramatically, then said: "Where nerds festivate!"

Which, if you think about it, is a good description of quite a few of us.
