Never Have You Always

Friday, September 12, 2008

Ms. Speaker: I've always wondered why you eat lunch at ten.

We: That's impossible; you've known we only three years.

Ms. Speaker: [Confused look] ...?

We: You couldn't possibly have always known that we eat lunch at ten when you've known we only three years. There's a gap of twenty-some years when you probably didn't even know that we existed--Always connotes forever, but since you haven't known we forever, your claim of always wondering something about we is impossible.

Ms. Speaker: Okay: Have you always been such a little %$#@?
