My cellphone rings, niceties ensue...
CC: I forgot to tell you, I bought a really cool knife.
Me: Uh, okay...
CC: (Big long story about the reasoning behind said knife, price, etc)
Me: That's great! (Totally was not listening)
CC: Oh, and I also bought a new chair for in front of the computer.
Me: Well, I hope it works better than the previous one that you bought. (Holding back laughter)
CC: (Big long story on why this chair is better than the previous one and how much money he saved.) So, when you get home be sure and look at the knife on the stove.
Fast forward to me getting home...
He bought a new stove... Did you see that coming? And, he really did buy a knife... But, I have to admit, I just sort of looked at the stove for about two minutes before I knew what to say. I was gone for like six hours and he went on a shopping spree.
Oh, but, I do really like the stove. Even though the first time I used it I almost burned the house down... We don't need to know about that, though.
I hadn't told a random story in a while.
