Again, if you don’t know who Kenny is, please do some research, get your life together, and then return back to this post.
[a telephone conversation between Kenny and I]
Me: [yawn….] so are we looking for paint colors for your room today or what?
Kenny: [several seconds, but what feels like hours of groaning, sighing, and cover rustling] well, I don’t feel so good. I have food poisoning. I’ve been up all night vomiting.
Me: Oh thank God, because I have waaay too much stuff to do today.
Me: Food poisoning? What did you eat?
Kenny: Some kind of Gordita-nacho-something or other at Taco Bell at 3 am.
Me: Well, did you ever think that wasn’t going to give you food poisoning? Oh, wait! I almost forgot to tell you the good news, World Market is going out of business. I’m going to go see if I can find some cheap stuff.
Kenny: When you’re there can you check and see if the Voss Water is on sale?
Me: Seriously? I really doubt that water will be on sale.
Kenny: Well, can you just check because I need some.
Me: You only like it because of the cool glass bottle.
Kenny: No I don’t. I like the taste of the water.
Me: It can NOT taste that much better than the other waters of the world that you can justify paying 3.49 a bottle.
Kenny: Yes it does.
Me: Ok. Well, I’ll going to level with you. I’m going to World Market today. While I’m there, I’m going to wander aimlessly and manhandle a a large amount of useless nic-nacs and large African vases that I have no intention of buying. But chances are, I probably won’t have time to check on the price of the water.
