Clothes Up & Personal

I’m doing the laundry on a Saturday afternoon while the washer and dryer are in storage. June 17th can’t get here any sooner (the day we move into the new house).

I’m folding laundry, and drinking a diet mountain dew when an interesting young lady starts up a conversation with me. This is just a small sample of my wonderful afternoon, doing three large loads of clothes.

Young Lady: Hey, I got a question for you. What does it mean when a guy says, “if you were only 20 years older…”

Me: I think it means that he thinks you are attractive, but 20 years too young to date.

Young Lady: I had a teacher tell me once to ask a question 100 times to find out the real answer and I bet I’ve asked that same question over 100 times.

Me: Do you ever get a different response than the one I just gave you?

Young Lady: Nope, I don’t think I ever have.

Me: I think you may have found the real answer (not as sarcastic as it may appear)

Young Lady: Do you like airplanes?

Me: Yeah (enthusiastically)

Young Lady: I talk about airplanes so much that I drive my family crazy. I know all the makes and models and everything there is to know about airplanes. I love airplanes. What do you know about airplanes?

Me: I fly in them to get places and I like them because the get me there faster than driving.

Young Lady: Ask me anything about airplanes and I bet I can answer it, just go ahead and ask me anything.

Me: Something I’ve always wanted to know is how do they stay in the air without falling to the ground

Young Lady: (after a long pause) Do you have another question about airplanes?
