I was just in line at the Duane Reade pharmacy counter behind two young latinas.
Chica #1: So it’s actually a real project, dealing with sound waves and subsonics
Chica #2: That’s so cool, you could actually discover something!
Chica #1: Yeah, and Mr. ***** was so cool about explaining it to me.
Chica #2: Where did you go?
Chica #1: This little spot down by the Seaport.
Chica #2: You going to get an A in AP Science!
Counterwoman: Can I help you?
Chica #1: Yeah, you sell Plan B?
We have now definitively established that Moe (my dog) loves musicals. He sat entranced by Evita and got agitated every one of the numerous times I tried turning it off. Now he’s stuck on Rocky Horror. My dog is a…well he’s…let’s just say that he’s an enthusiastic member of the drama club.
Yep, that was me talking to my hypothetical dinner guest. Now you just have to figure out which one of you is hypothetical.
I’ll bring a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau?
Red!! My fave. You’re welcome for dinner anytime, with or without the wine. Well … no, yeah I’m sure, with or without. I lurve cooking for others. Any of my Tumblr friends have a warm meal waiting for them if they pass thru this way.
I live above a really good southern/comfort food restaurant called Mama’s. “That smells good” starts in my apartment late morning and extends late into the night.
If you are the first in the history of a particular pool to ever pick all the week’s NFL games correctly (as far as the league’s commissioner can remember), it is probably in poor form to write a reply e-mail to all other participants challenging their individual picking strategy (in order to laud your own), particularly those who are ahead of you in the overall season standings.
If you hate fun, winning and America maybe. Let em know
Corollary: the taunt would be fine if it was a regular fantasy league. Trash talk and bragging is expected. In a pick-em that includes outsiders who are NOT sports junkies, just those who like to tune in now and again, it’s a faux pas. Know your crowd.
Screw tact. I spend a lot of time handicapping the NFL. It aint easy. A success rate of 55-56% covers the vig and pays nicely. Yahtzeeing an entire week is beyond impressive. You just hit a hole-in-one. Grab your crotch, moonwalk, and mock the bejeezus out of your competition. You earned the right.
