In which Iím reminded of that famous Winston Churchill (mis)quote...
The cable was turned off at my house. It was turned off because my roommate didnít pay the bill for a few months. When he informed me of this, we had the following conversation:
Him: Yeah, Verizon shut the cable off because I didnít pay the bill. Iím sorry Iím a little short.
It was at that point that I realized we were having a little miscommunication.
When he said he was a ďlittle short,Ē he was referring to his temporary state of being short on money.
However, I assumed that he was referring to his permanent state, a la Lady Astor, of being short on BRAIN CELLS!
