Post-House Inspection Strange Conversation
Posted 27 August 2009 in Strange Conversations by Catriona
NICK: Oh well, panic stations over.
ME: I wasn’t panicking! The house is shiny.
NICK: No! I mean in a metaphorical sense. We can stand down from alert.
ME: Metaphorical panicking? Is that a metaphorical alert, too?
NICK: Yes. Alert but not alarmed, anyway.
ME: And does this mean you’re going to start leaving crap everywhere again?
NICK: Um, I’ll try.
ME: Yes—you seem to have misinterpreted my last point, there.
