Posted 16 March 2012 in by Catriona

ME: Honey, if you want to go out this afternoon …
NICK: Well, I don’t really want to, exactly.
ME: Perhaps “want” was a poor choice of verb. Allow me to rephrase. Should a complex system of emotional and social triggers prompt you to exit the house this afternoon, that would be fine.
NICK: Okay then.

NICK: I don’t really want to, though.

ME: Oh, you have made a great mess in the land.
NICK: You have?
ME: Not me. You.
NICK: You’ve got to break stuff to make stuff, Treena.
ME: Is that your version of “You can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs”?
NICK: Exceptionale.
ME: Is that your version of “Yes”?
NICK: Exceptionale.
