When we got home from church today, it went something like this:
Me: I need to run to the store for a couple of things I forgot.
Ed: When you go, would you pick up some hand soap refill? You know...it's on the hand soap aisle.
Me: REEEAALLLYYY? WOW! They keep the hand soap on a hand soap aisle? Gee, someone is really thinking.
Ed: (now sheepishly grinning) Yeah, isn't it amazing how they do that?
After the trip to the store and at lunch time, I prepared a sandwich for his mother and asked him if he wanted one. He said maybe half. I said ok, if his mother only wants half (which she usually does) he could have the other half. I made the sandwich, delivered her half, and told him his half was ready. He came to sit down and there was more conversation.
Ed: (lifting up the top piece of bread) What's on this sandwich?
Me: (perplexed..I mean look at it) Well, it has lettuce, tomato, mayo, cheese....(I stopped to look at him lifting the bread)...oh...I forgot the meat. Your mother just ate a cheese sandwich not a turkey and cheese sandwich (and the turkey was still sitting on the kitchen counter...I just had forgotten to put it on). She must not have noticed or I would have heard about it.
Ed: Uh, now you might be able to understand why I was explaining to you where you could find the hand soap.
Me: Ok, you got me...this time.
