Here is a conversation Chris and I had.
Well, it wasn't a long conversation. You have to remember that we've been together for like 13 years so I do consider this a conversation, because it didn't involve either one of us grunting at each other.
Me: Chris what is another word for abreast?
Chris: Um, knockers, tits and boobs.
20 seconds of Chris staring at me like an idiot because I'm holding myself trying not to pee from laughing so hard.
Chris: What's so damn funny? You asked me and I told you.
Me: I didn't say a breast I said abreast.
Chris: What! I know and I told you. Why the hell are you still laughing?
Me: Abreast means to like keep up to date on something.
Chris: Well, that's fucking stupid! And, who ever uses that word is a damn idiot!
Me: Awe! That's not very nice!
Chris: Sorry! I really don't think you should use that word though. People are gonna think you're talking about boobies.
Me: Okay, point taken. Thanks for the tip.
We had another conversation a few weeks about about the word "placate." That conversation pretty much ended with me running to the bathroom.
I think I will get him a word of the day calendar for his desk at work.
Thanks for reading.
