dear elder, i will let you off the hook. and i'm only doing it because jimmy3000 was asking too. the sheaves that the mofo refers to are in reference to the song bringing in the sheaves. when i used to pick up the nice lady on the way to school when we went to college i used to get her while her mom was getting ready for work. now the mother in law is born again. at the time before she discovered the easy on the eyes stylings of carmen, she used to listen to family radio and this 2 tape set of christian favorites. one tape featured burl ives (of rudolph the red nosed reindeer fame), singing bringing in the sheaves. she listened to the tape so frequently, that i was dropping by 4 out of 5 days of the school week and hearing it twice a week. sometimes (and to be honest rarely but it must have happened at least twice for me to remember this stuff) i would hear it every morning.
one night the mofo and i were drinking and hashing out things after he got back from work at tower records and i made mention of this to him. he found it to be funny as hell. that is the mofo's gift. he remembers minutia that was once funny to me and then brings that beat back.
case in point. we have this dentist that looks alot like peter sellers. i'm at the dentist and he asks me if i had seen the mofo lately, that he owes him a visit. i go home and he's chillin' out, smoking a camel and i tell him that the dentist was asking where he was and mofo responds (without missing a beat), "next time you see him, you tell him i'm in his fridge waiting for him."
