Him and Me

Apparently I have a giant head.

Stefanie wants to knit me a hat. I am all for this. So today we went to her friend Lucy's yarn shop to get yarn. Lucy was saying that she knew of someone who was making a hat for her husband, and when she measured his head it was 24 inches; no one believed it was that big, and she had to keep checking and confirming that that was how big it was. So they measured my head. You guessed it- 24 and a half inches! I feel well endowed. At least I will have a nice hat to cushion my gargantuan melon from the objects that hit it after being caught in its’ gravitational pull.

At least it runs in the family. My little nephew Sam also has a huge head. He is in the 50th percentile for height, but the 95th percentile for head size. My sister the pediatrician kept worrying that he had some kind of hydrocephaly. He doesn’t.

I can hear you on the bus (or outside class) talking to one of your buddies "...Well, mine is 24 and a half inches..."

In college, two guys at a party start the following conversation

:Mine's longer
:Not a lot
:at least two inches, I'll bet
:show me
both begin unbuckling. Then, you guessed it, they pull the belts out of their pants and compare length.
Release the Kraken!

I know there's a joke in there but I'll just leave to philosophers...

Guy humor.

And unfortunately 1) even cruder would be even better; and 2) age doesn't seem to improve the problem. (Note which shows on TV have all the flatulance jokes.)

i recently bought my brother a baseball hat i thought he would like. he doesn't like the fully adjustable size ones, but i found this neat stretchy size kind where as long as you are close (sm/med or lg/xl) it will look good. so i called him.
me: hypothetically, if you were going to rate your hat size, would you say small/med, or lg/xl?
bro: well, i suppose i'd have to think it'd be lg/xl. hypothetically.
me: uh, ok, thanks.

2 minutes later, phone rings.
my aunt: what the hell?
me: uh, wha?
aunt: you seriously asked your brother what size his head is?
me: well, i'm buying him a hat.
her: apparently you've forgotten that for the first 15 years of his life, all you ever said about him was what a gargantuan melon he had, how his head had it's own gravity, and you compared his head to sputnik, epcot center, and various other mammoth orbs.
me: uh, yeah, i guess that slipped my mind. so lg/xl, right?
