Clever boy

My family and I were walking out of the arena after the rodeo ended and my brother said:
"Now that the rodeo's over, guess what's gonna come out and spread nice fresh dirt in the rodeo ring? A Zamdirti."

Too early to be understood

Overheard at work this morning:

"My coach's son had the 5A rushing title when he was a senior."

"What kind of a title?"


"Oh, I thought you said 'Russian'. I was thinking, 'What is that: czar?'"

Dropping a hint

We watched the ball drop on New Year's Eve as we waited to toast 2008. After the ball dropped and we clinked glasses, the camera panned away from the ball and we watched the crowd as we discussed whether we would ever want to pass New Year's Eve in Times Square. The camera passed over a couple, the man on his knees, clearly proposing to his girlfriend.

"See, he shouldn't do that," I piped up. "What if she says no on national television? That would be an embarassing and unhappy start to the new year."

"That's true," F's sister agreed. "Did she say no?"

"No, she accepted the ring," I conveyed as they kissed in celebration.

Tuned out

The guys were talking college sports when I went downstairs for lunch at work today. I wanted to read my book, so I only added a couple comments. As the last one was heading upstairs, he commented,"Here we've been disturbing you when all you were trying to do was read your book."

I looked up at him and joked, "My boyfriend works in sports radio, I'm very practiced at tuning out sports talk that doesn't interest me."
