Really, This is it for a While (today)

The Mister: “Remind me to stop at the bank”
me: “Stop at the bank”
“I mean later.”
“Is it later now?”
-time passes-
me, while en route to the bank:“Stop at the bank.”
“On it boss.”
“Aren’t you going [to Montreal, Quebec] in like, three more days?”
“Yes, but I need money now.”
“Fur what?”
“Well, bowling and I owe a guy at work twenty bucks.”
“YOU owe someone money?  Praytell?”
“I bought you a Thanksgiving gift.”
“OOOHHHH!  Wait, since when are we supposed to give gifts for Thanksgiving?”
“No.  I just got you something.”
“OH! Is it an alpaca?!”
“Is it two alpacas?!”
“By the time I got there, they were all sold out of alpacas.
“Drat.  Is it popcorn?”
“No.  It’s not food.”
“Is it a book?!”
“Would you tell me if it was a book?”
“But it’s not.”
“Is it a kitten?”
“Dear god!  NO!”
“Was a kitten?”
“Is it a box of second-grade beef hearts?”
(unconvincingly) “Uh-nooooo.”
“Is it something that I want?”

LOL, is it something I want!

SB Sez: In his defense, he’s pretty good with the gift giving… I’m trying to figure out what I want that’s fund raising and $17.95.

Wait, candle? Maybe a pumpkin-y candle?

completely unrelated: did his birthday shirt fit him?

Why am I asking you questions on la internetz when I’ll see you in an hour?

SB Sez: Consensus agrees, we thinks it’s a candle.

an alpaca? aren’t they sheep-like things? or goats? or something? llllallllmas? i’m not such a good student of agriculture…sorry.

i think he got you some wrapping paper…or a hamhock. that’s what they sell around my office. mwa hahahha.

SB Sez: Alpacas are Llama Llike. A hamhock? (which I read as “hammock” and I’m like, dude, an $18 hammock? pass!) He said it wasn’t food. And it’s not a craft.

i’m a guy… i know how he thinks… it’s actually something HE wants but is giving it to you as if YOU want it so he gets points for gift giving, but gets to play with whatever it is… got it?

SB Sez: That’s what I was kind of thinking too, but he’s the straight forward type that is like “I totally bought myself something.”

HAHAHAHH! Too cute. Hope you get something great.

PS: you KNOW gnuguy still wants you.

SB Sez: I’ll hopefully be deeeeeelighted. If all else fails, I know I’m getting an “architecture of Montreal” book.
