Conversations heard yesterday in my house:
Jesse: Sally (not her real name) goes to those online dating sites. I might try Ebay.
Lindsay: You mean E Harmony?
Jesse: Maybe I’ll try that too.
If you know Jesse at all, you know she was just being outrageous - probably trying to get a rise out of me.
One to rival the Riley Line:
Jesse: Zoe (the Great Dane) went with Lindsay and me on or bike ride. She ran along in front of us until she spotted a cow in the pasture. She stopped right in front of Lindsay almost causing a wreck. You should have seen Zoe; she was upset. Her heckles were standing up.
Toby: Did you see that Congress has called the oilmen to testify?
Me: What about?
Toby: They are questioning them about the high prices of oil and gas.
Me: I thought you said those prices were set by futures markets and not by the oil companies?
Toby: They are. Congress is showboating. Why don’t they drag those thieving bankers before Congress and make them answer some questions? Instead, they are bailing them out!
Me: You should blog it.
