Late Tuesday Night...

My conversation with Abram tonight:

A: I'm ready for bed.
K: Well, I guess I won't be going to bed with you.  I still have to finish up on the computer and then go buy some brisket from Giant.
A: sigh
K: Well, you could go pick up the brisket for me.
A: I'm not good with brisket.  Every time I try to buy you brisket I can't find it anywhere.
K:  rolling eyes Really Abram?
A:  Kristin.  Yes. 
K: Have you ever asked anyone to show you where it is?
A: Kristin.  I can not go into that store and ask someone where the brisket is.  No way.

(at this point I tuned him out while he went on and on about this nonsense about men and meat - give me a break). 

K:  I'm not even listening to you now. 
A:  Kristin.  Me asking someone for help with meat is like you asking someone to tell you where the tampons are. 
K:  I would have no problem walking right up to the first person I saw and asking them where they are. 
A:  Okay, imagine you are standing right in front of all of them.  Would you call someone over and ask, "which ones have wings?"  

At this point I lost it.  I mean, no one in the entire world can make me laugh like Abram.

That was so funny, I started to laugh out loud! It makes me miss having you guys around- hope we can catch up sometime when you are back in town! I love reading your blog- Max is so cute!

He's got a point...the wings push that right over the edge of being "okay". ( : He's a funny one.

Delsa said...

Haven't you taught that man that tampons don't have wings - at least I'd hate to wear one with wings.

He is to die for.

And so is, PS, your mother's comment.

Wings eh? I'm glad Delsa said what I was thinking. He's got a point though. What kind of man doesn't know his cuts of meat? He'd surely be laughed right out of the store. ;-)

Hey, Josh wouldn't know what to look for either, which is why I dislike sending him to the grocery store - it's inevitable that I'll get a phone call (or 2 or 3) from him asking about something that he's unsure of. I mean, it's just grocery shopping, but he's clueless about a lot of it! :)

This is going in my lecture next week in my conversation class!

Jana said...

LOL!!!! I love his sneaky ways of getting out of the dirty work. Who really wants to go to the store EVER?!! Let alone when others are going to bed. :)

Lisa said...

I'm belly laughing right now!

Elizabeth said...

Lisa told me to read your blog, I am rolling on the floor right now laughing! He is hysterical!

So funny! Thanks for the post. We're so excited to have you back in A2, even though we're sorry for your VA friends' loss (which is our gain).
