It’s All In The Delivery

I was going to regale you with complaints of my mucus and frustration with still being sick but seriously, who wants to read that crap? Instead, I give you this exchange between the fella and I. . .

{on the phone}

Me: “It’s very dark out.”

Him: “I like cheese.”

Me: “What?”

Him: “Raisins are small.”

Me: “Um. . . what? Why are you talking about raisins?”

Him: “Because you were stating the obvious. So I did too.”

Smart ass.

“Sometimes I know I thought/You would run out of fools/But I was so wrong/You got one that you’ll never lose/The way you treat me is shame/How could you hurt me so bad/Baby you know that I’m the best thing that you ever had/Kiss me once again/Don’t you never never say that we’re through/’Cause I ain’t never/Never/Never no no/Loved a man the way that I/I love you. . .” -Never Loved A Man, Aretha Franklin

  1. Ok, to be fair, unless you KNOW how much he likes cheese, that really wasn’t such an obvious statement.

    But a smart-ass is fun. MUCH more fun than a dumb-ass in my experience…

  2. Remember our family motto: better a smart ass than a dumb ass. 😉 He’s a keeper.

    Feel better soon. This is not the time of the year to be sick!

  3. I love that he is a sarcastic smart-ass! There is no chance of you getting bored of this guy … or us readers getting bored of his antics! The beginnings of new love, fun stuff!

  4. I like the sound of him…

    Emergen-C (two packets in the morning and two at night) and zinc lozenges during the day. I swear. You’ll feel better in 24 hours. You can come to FL and punch me if you don’t… 🙂

  5. Love the smart asses, they are so much more entertaining.

    And, it is fucking dark out. I never turn my office light on, and by 3pm I am working in the dark. It is so depressing… Less than a month and the days start getting longer.

  6. That sounds like a response I would come up with. Like when my husband calls me to complain about traffic… it’s obvious that traffic will be bad – we live in Chicago!
