What Did He Say?
Because sometimes I like to record things that amuse me:
At work, in a meeting where we were asked to go around the table, introduce ourselves, and explain what we do:
Ryan: I’m Kate’s part-time assistantCoworker: Actually 24 hour assistantMe: Yeah – it’s a full service operation
On cleaning around the house:
Ryan: Kate buys the swiffer as if it’s going to solve all of our problems. Like one day the swiffer will just get up and clean the floors. But you’re never going to clean the floors, and I hate those things, so you just threw away $10.
In Portugal, Mom was face down on the bed after a day of touring. We’re deciding where to go for dinner, and we accuse her of ‘fading’:
Mom: I’m not fading. But if I took a little nap, it’d be ok.
In Portugal, we stayed at a wonderful Marriott, but disagreed about the quality (read: size) of the comforter. (See if you can fill in the blanks about why that might be.) :
Mom: did you notice any problems with the comforter at the Marriott?
(responding at the same time:)
