The quotable missus, during the final quarter of the Super Bowl:
"Don't talk to me like I'm stupid, I get it so shut up. This is the last down, and a down is like a chance. If they don't move ten yards in the direction they want to go in four chances they lose possession of the ball. There a four quarters in a game. Stop laughing; you're laughing at me. Shut up. How many downs til they get the new quarterback? Oh that man caught the ball even though he wasn't a Chicago player, now he's running the other way. I think Indianapolis will win this game."
*will let this settle before he complicates things with CFL rules*
heard anything quotable lately?
The quotable ditzy kid running the alterations booth at my local ultra-trendy yoga-gear purveyor, while trying to buy my short brother some new pants so that he doesn't go to his pilates class in jeans anymore:
Me: Can you alter these to a 29 inch inseam?
Her: Did you try them on?
Me: They're not for me.
Her: We really try to encourage customers to try on the pants. It's better.
Me: Yeah but I'm not a customer, really. I'm buying these for my brother. He's Pretty short. Can you just make a mark to indicate that I want them to have a 29 inch inseam?
Her: Yeah totally!
Me: That's not gonna work. That's actually a 32 inch inseam.
Her: *gets out measuring tape again* Okay how long did you want it again?
Me: 29 inches please.
Her: On both legs?
