A Day at the Coast


At the beach. Kenley comes and lies down next to me with her hands behind her head.
Julia: Ah, are you lounging on the sand with me?
Kenley: Yep! It’s hard to know.
Julia: Yeah…okay.
*five seconds of silence, staring at the ocean*
Kenley: Hey Julia?
Julia: Yeah?
Kenley: What are you doing?
Julia: I, um, I’m just lying here next to you.
Kenley: Why?
Julia: Because I like it.
Kenley: Why?
Julia: It’s relaxing.
Kenley: Oh, why?
Julia: Because I see monkeys on my knees.
Kenley: Why?
Julia: Because the Canadians are snobs.
Kenley: Oh. Yeah, it’s hard to know.


On the way home from the coast, in the car with Ed, Regen, Sloan, Julia, and Kenley. About two hours into the trip.
Sloan: When I was listening to the radio the other day—
Kenley: Sloooooan! Stop talking!
*confused silence*
Sloan: Uh, anyway, I was listening to the radio and I guess the station’s

Kenley: TALKING!
Regen: Kenley? Why can’t Sloan talk? You’re letting everyone else talk. And you’ve been letting him this whole time…
Kenley: It’s so loud!
Sloan: I’m the quietest speaker in the car! You’re not even sitting near me!
Kenley: SLOAN! DO! NOT! TALK!
*five minutes pass*
Julia: My favorite part of the beach was flying the kites!
Sloan: My favorite part was the—
Kenley: *clutching ears* SLOOOOOOOAN! NO!

  3. That looks like the beach we all went to last year the day after your wedding. You and Sloan were TOO busy to join us. Coldest water in the world, especially for July. Love the pictures and Kenley.

  7. Natalie, before I even clicked on yours, I KNEW it was going to be Louis CK!!!! His bit about his daughter talking all of the time, even when he's running errands in the city cracks me up.

  9. I want to try Kenley's forbidding-that-some-random-person-talk trick at work. I'll get ignored/fired/beaten-up, but it'll be awesome.
