A dialogue on cephalophones

I realize these dialogues would be much more exciting if one of us could draw, or pretend to draw, on the computer.  But alas, we are lazy.

#1:  I didn’t realize there was a word for this, but it makes sense.

#2:  …and it has to be saints, not just anybody carrying their heads?

#1:  maybe it’s a term about saints that you could apply to other people?

#2:  but that might confuse people– how would they know you’re speaking metaphorically?

#1:  hmm

#2:  like you don’t want people to think that an *ordinary* group of people carrying their heads are actually saints

#1:  haha

#2:  Or worse!  It could be dangerous.  You might confuse a group of headless horsemen for saints.

#1:  only if they had horses

#2:  or British houseghosts!

#1:  (nearly)

#2:  They’re not always nearly headless!  What about the Canterbury Ghost?

#1:  What about him?

#2:  He’s not a saint.

#1:  Right.

#2:  Or what about Nearly Headless Nick’s Frenemies?  I bet they’re dangerous.  Can’t go mixing them up with saints.

#1:  hahahaha

      OMG, I saw that in theaters when it came out and had completely forgotten that scene, though I remember it deeply from the books (where it was some random gruesome princess, not mombi). Soooo creepy.

      Do not get her mixed up with a saint! She will take your head! Unless you’re ugly… I think Ozma of Oz is the creepiest of the books. (The wheelers also scared me. And of course, the nome king.)

        Do you remember the wheelers from the movie?? NO ONE else remembers them when I bring it up but they were deeply upsetting to me as a child.

        They’re upsetting in the books too! One of the creepier memories from childhood.

        Mostly I remember that they had Dorothy instead of Tip and I had a coloring book with the Gump which was one of my favorite characters (also the sawhorse).
