He Said WHAT?!

February 8, 2011

Mid-afternoon on Sunday She said, “Lunch was pretty light and it’s four hours until dinner.  Would you like a snack?”

He was staring intently at his computer and didn’t look up from his typing.  “Uhm, yeah.  How about … not a sandwich.  Maybe a coke and something chippy.”

She said, “Something, what?”

Without a pause in his work He answered.  “Chippy.  Something chippy.”

She said, “You want coke and a chippy?”

He said, “Yeah.”

She said, “Okay. I can probably do that.  You want your chippy with or without syphilis?”

His fingers froze above the keyboard.  He turned his head to look at her.  She could actually see him mentally hit rewind and review the conversation.  “Oh!” He grinned sheepishly.  “Hold the syphilis.  Just bring me a Coca-Cola and whatever snack chips we have in the house.”

“Right,” She said.  “One rolling pin coming up.”
