about me


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.

Me: [Silence].

Him: But I should be okay by Tuesday.

Me: [Really Confused] What is going to happen between now and Tuesday to change your situation?

Him: Well I start getting paid from my job at the restaurant on Monday, so I shouldnít be short the money to pay the bill anymore. I think I can have the service switched back on by Tuesday.

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!
