Well, actually, I bought it yesterday to USE today. We all know how much I enjoy yardwork. So believe me when I tell you that buying that hoe was major. MAJOR.
When I was on the phone with LM, telling her I was at the Hardware and asking her if there was anything she needed, she said, "No. Why are you at the hardware store?"
And I said, "I'm buying a Hoe."
And she said, "Watchu talkin' 'bout, boy?"
And I said, "No. Not that kind of Hoe. Besides, I'd buy me a big city ho' - they don't sound like that."
End of story.
I was watching television in the company of a certain elderly person I know when her favorite TV show came on. (It stars Tom Selleck) It's a show she watches EVERY WEEK. Never misses an episode. As the opening scenes began to roll across the screen, she started into her mantra - "I know I watch this all the time, but I don't remember this one, so far."
Me: "You're not going to tell me you don't remember this one, are you?"
Her: "Well, if I saw it I certainly didn't see this part."
I let it pass without further comment.
a little while later ...
"Oh. I think I remember him doing that."
and a little while later yet ...
"Now I don't remember that part at all."
and yet a little while further on ...
"I think I saw that before."
Me: "Gee. You must be on an emotional roller coaster - 'Oh goody, one I haven't seen before' then 'Oh, no, I remember this part' then 'Oh, but I couldn't have seen THIS before' and then 'Yeah, I remember this part now'."
Her: "Well, I probably wasn't paying attention when it was on the first time."
Me: "Well, I hope you've got it now. This is a good show - but you have to pay attention. There's stuff that goes on over multiple episodes."
Her: "No. Really?"
She does get sarcastic once in a while.
End of story.
