conversations with a polish boy, part 10.

Wednesday, August 10, 2011




him: hey, i have bad news. i can't hang out tomorrow night.
me: oh. that's fine. what's up?
him: we have to work late and then we have this thing... 'til 8:00.
me: you have to stay at work until 8:00?? why?!
him: it's just this thing....with boys.
me: excuse me?
him: yeah...it's weird.
me: this is not sounding normal.
him: well....it's basically, like, just.....soccer.
me: "this thing with boys" is soccer?
him: yeah, we all play soccer together. it's a thing (soccer) that we (boys) do. a thing with boys. called soccer.
[fine by me! i went to see larry crowne instead...see above.]

him: i feel so lucky to be with you.
me: really?
him: yeah, i feel like the luckiest man in.....my family.
[he is one of 3 men in his family, so.....great!]

[i've mentioned before that piotr occasionally uses words in the incorrect context....here we go.]
him: i'm going to be SO petrified tomorrow when i wake up.
me: why?
him: from being tired.
me: i don't really think you can use 'petrified' there....
him: what?  but it’s one of my faves.  ….okay, fine. i'm going to be SO devastated tomorrow when i wake up.

me: when you lived in portugal did you skype a lot with your family?
him: yes, especially on holidays. i'd call them at lunchtime and they'd gather 'round the computer and give me intimate wishes.
me: excuse me?
him: yeah, they'd wish me intimate things.
me: ....what.
him: yeah, you know, like, "happy birthday! i wish you a year of success and health and happiness!"
[the conversation called "the word 'intimate' and all its connotations" shortly followed.]

I really love the conversation series. And petrified was awesome!

Alex said...

I am giggling over this "intimate" business.

Also:
1. I really liked Larry Crowne as well, but agree with you on the scooter gang storyline. When Tom and Julia were riding on the scooter during the credits, I busted out laughing and couldn't stop.

2. Being full of one thing just to move on to another is totally acceptable. I deal with it on a daily basis!

how does he not know about anne frank?!! i feel like that name should be universally known.
i would also like your sunglasses. actually, it's less of a like and more of a need. i need those shades in my life.

Tucker said...

as always, these are my favorite.

and JB tucker didn't know who anne frank was UNTIL i made a fuss over going to the museum, and then as we are in the museum, he goes "so who is anne frank?" i stood there with my jaw open for at least a minute.

hayley.jay said...

michelle marie said...

debbiecutieface said...

HAHAHAHAHAHA oh Piotr.

But HOW do you not know who Anne Frank was? I didn't even know that was possible.

Has he ever seen Harry Potter? Cause that would take 'petrified' to a whole new context! Very cute stories :) x

DJ said...

haha love these, as usual! I'm totally using the "I wish you a year of success and health and happiness" line while getting intimate with my husband tonight.

PS I am right there with you on the getting full of one thing! My parents never understood that when I was growing up. And then I discovered tapas and finally, someone understood me!

Megan said...

these really just make me more pumped for thanksgiving.

Emma Frances said...

Hahaha. I love these conversations.

When it comes to getting full of dinner and eating cake my husband is a pro at that. He says that his "dinner section" is full and now he's ready for his "dessert section". Haha. It works. :] {randeashby.blogspot.com}

Kayla said...

This might be one of my favorite posts ever.
But on the other hand it also makes me sad, because I feel like the last year was incomplete since I didn't meet Piotr :(

Rebecca at Cotton+Wood said...

haha...I think Pt. 9 is the funniest. I was literally cracking up the entire post.
