Things I Meant to Post Before, But Didn't

Sometimes I have stuff I want to post, I jot down the idea in a draft posting and then, for some reason or another, I don't get around to posting it. Sometimes it's just a quick snippet and I figure I'll have something to add to it at a later date. Sometimes it turns out to be an idea that just doesn't work, and it ends up deleted. The following two snippets were from conversations back in March when Sarah was visiting Vancouver that I guess I just got too busy having fun with Sarah to actually complete a post on. I came across them today as I was cleaning out my old, unposted draft items and they made me laugh, so I thought I'd share them:


Sarah
: Do you know what the first state in the union was?
Me: Nope.
Sarah: It was Delaware. Do you know how I know that?*
Me: Because you know everything.



Etienne: But my English is terrible!
Everyone Else at Dinner: Are you kidding? Your English is great!!
Etienne: Sometimes I have thoughts in French and I just can't articulate them in English.
Me: That happens to me all the time. But I don't speak any other languages.


*I can't remember now what her reason why was she knew that. But anyone who knows Sarah will know that she really does know everything.

Hey! Thanks for the shout out. This weekend was long and not a lot of fun, and we get to do it all again next weekend. I am going to bed soon, but will give you a call tomorrow night, k?

As for Delaware -- it was a stoopid slogan I learned during an NCAA Final 4 back in high school. A University in Delaware FINALLY made it in -- they were the last state to have a team go. The slogan: "First to ratify, last to qualify".

And...goodnight.
