In which we discuss why something I crave hasn’t yet been downloaded.
NICK: I’ve just turned the programme back on.
ME: Oh, so that’s why it’s taken twelve thousand years to download.
NICK: I respond to your demands for bandwidth!
ME: I don’t recall demanding bandwidth in the last week and a half.
NICK: I’m simply trying to be deciduous.
NICK: Well, how do you pronounce that word?
NICK: No, it starts with a “j”.
NICK: That’s it.
ME: “Deciduous” means you’ve shed all your leaves.
NICK: I know perfectly well what it means, thank you. I just don’t know how to pronounce it.
(Note: it has taken me twice as long as normal to type this, because I can’t stop laughing.)
