It was a beautiful thing.
One of us laughed.
Can you spell s-t-u-p-i-d? The national spelling bee declared two winners as a tie for first place because they ran out of words. Really? They really ran out of words on some official list. Like, um, maybe they didn't have time to find more words? Yes, that's probably it.
Why did my dog come into the kitchen to complain just now? Because I had not quite made it into the livingroom to sit down beside him to drink my coffee so I could be there to watch him tackle his brand new chewbone.

I get a call from my favorite auto mechanic.
"The blower on your wife's car needs to be replaced."
I respond, "What? I didn't know anything about it."
He responds, "Is this Ernie?" (He has known me for at least twenty years.)
I respond yes, and then I ask what make of vehicle; I have a Mountaineer, black.
He responds, "No, this is a different car. I could have sworn that was your wife. Maybe it was a different 'Ernie'."
I ask him, "Do I still have to pay for the repair?" teasing him with a serious voice.

Maybe I was thinking of a different Joseph Conrad.
