I’m going to explain an inside/group joke that I may have posted here and there before, but it may have made no sense at all at the time I posted it.

Every time I travel great distances with someone, I tell everyone in person or through social media “Crystals. We forgot the crystals.

Confused? Don’t be. No, I don’t own any crystals, nor was I needing to pack any crystals for that past or any future trips... The quote comes from the 2nd Commentary on the second release of the Napoleon Dynamite DVD called the “Napoleon Dynamite - Like, the Best Special Edition Ever!” released back in 2006 [blog post link]. This secondary commentary included the cast who played Kip (Aaron Ruell), Pedro (Efren Ramirez), Deb (Tina Majorino) and Uncle Rico (Jon Gries). As you can see in this video that includes the commentary, Aaron Ruell tells the story involving his family behind this “time machine” scene.

The first time I think I said it was back in 2009 [Twitter post]. Point is, every time I travel long distances and I’m thinking after it’s too late to turn around and grab whatever it may be that I have forgotten, I'll say this quote... only if I didn’t forget something.

I guess it’s now kind of a tradition to just blurt it out.
