While at the park this weekend, getting a drink from the drinking fountain with R:
R: "Let's get a drink."
M: "I don't think I can reach it."
R: "Well, one of them is lower."
R: "No, lower."
M: "You need to be more pespific." (Specific.)
R, thinking: (Sheesh.)
Is anyone surprised to find that this is something I say to M a lot? "M, please be more specific. I don't know what 'this' means." Now it has been turned back on us. It was only a matter of time.
