This is a recent actual conversation:
Him: Charlie was on the way to Vegas and had an accident...blah, blah, talks about how badly car was wrecked.... gets off subject talking about work and who's ticking him off... then says, Richard went to the ER with a hand injury.
Me: Will workman's comp cover it?
Him: No, it was away from work... I told you.
Me: You did?
Him: Yeh, on the way to Vegas.
Me: You said Charlie went to Vegas.
Him: Richard went too.
Me: Oh, so they were together.
Him: No, they weren't.
Me: Now how am I supposed to understand with this? (repeats conversation)
Him: They were in separate cars and there was a pile up.... try to keep up.
Me: bites tongue (yeh, right)
Gotta love'em... and I do. He knows me better than I do... we just can't communicate... daily!
