Conversations Between An Old Married Couple

Serge:  We need more sippy cups! 

Me:  We have, like, five.

Serge: But they're all always dirty when you're home.

Me:  That's because we use them.  That's what you're supposed to do.

Serge:  What I do is I use the same one all day, washing it every time Violet finishes using it.  That way, they aren't always all dirty.

Me:  According to that logic we only need one sippy cup then, right?

Serge: Uh. Wait.  No.  Nevermind...



Serge:  It's so bright.  Why is it always so bright here?

Me: What do you mean 'here'?

Serge:  Here in Utah.  It's so bright.

Me:  See that thing there?  That big thing in the sky?  It's called the sun.

Serge:  It's way too bright.
