him: you know that song "not in me, not in you" by roxette?
him: we heard it on the radio earlier.
me: we heard "knowing me, knowing you" by abba.
him: yeah, that's the same song.
him: i feel like i've been digging ditches 5 days in a row.
him: i said i feel like i've been digging ditches 5 days in a row.
me: have you?
him: of course not.
me: what does that mean?
him: it means i had to wake up early today and i'm tired...obviously.
him: i worked for an american company once. it was so strange but strange in a good way.
me: how was it strange?
him: nobody called the men 'sir' and nobody called the women 'madame'.
me: .....i don't think anyone in america calls anyone 'madame'.
him: so what do you call women, formally?
him: ma'am instead of madame? that's funny. must be a southern thing.
[yeah, because i hear in the northern states, everyone says 'yes, madame' and ‘no, madame’.]
him: what do you call the yellow part of an egg?
me: the yolk.
him: so when you're making breakfast and you hand someone a plate of eggs do they say, "Yooooooo.....lk. Thanks for the yolk." ?
me: no. they do not say that.
[i should mention there were cool hand gestures involved in his question.]
