(Rhiannon was playing with canned spray air stuff. )
Me: That was one of the neat things about dating geeks. They *always* have that stuff around.
Rhiannon: It doesn't last very long
Me: yeah, I'll usually go through about 2 cans when blowing out my computer.
Me: You know, when you crack open your case and clean out your computer.
Rhiannon: What would you open?
Me: The case.
Rhiannon: **very confused look**
Me: The case to your computer.
Rhiannon: You mean the modem?
Me: **very confused face** no. The modem is usually just a card that allows you to connect to the internet via a phone cord.
Rhiannon: Then what do you mean?
Me: The *case* to your *computer*
Rhiannon: The monitor?
Me: no... okay... (here I resort to pantomime again) This is the monitor. This is the keyboard. This big thing overhere... that's the computer.
Rhiannon: Oh! you mean the tower.
Me: no, I mean the computer. Some of them just happen to be towers.
Rhiannon: oh, see... mine is an e-machine. I think it's like.. .welded shut or something. I don't know.
And then a customer walked up. Thank god.
Then later at the grocery store she kept insisting that my sushi smelled really bad. "OH MY GOD, IT STINKS SO MUCH! Ewwwwww! I HATE seafood. It's SOO GROSS"
"Hey, this isn't seafood. It's just veggie rolls."
"It's sushi. OH ICK I CAN SMELL IT FROM HERE."
"Rhiannon, it's just a veggie roll. No fish."
"I don't see how you can eat that stuff GUH IT SMELLS SO BAAAD."
"Rhiannon, it's rice, a lil nori, carrots, cucumbers and a tiny bit of avocado. That's it. No fish. No fish at all. NO FISH. No seafood."
So she finally shut up. And then, she wanted to know if I wanted to hang out tonight. heheheh.
