Elaine said… and other conversations.

[Car audio plays Bon Iver and St. Vincent’s “Rosyln”]

“Is this holiday music?”

“I’m going to sing the ABCs backwards.”

“Wow!” I thought to myself amazed at what’s to come.

“B….” [and continued to say random letters]

“I’m going to count backwards.”



[At the hospital, to a nurse:]

“I want to be a nurse when I grow up!”

“Don’t you want to be a doctor?”

“Uh, yeah! I want to be a doctor. Then a teacher. Then I want to go camping!”

Nurse laughs and tells me, “Oh~ she wants to retire and go camping.”

[from a random conversation with my husband on our Amazon Music playlists:]

Me: What is ‘Robotaki’? [I pronounced it ‘Robo-taki’]

Husband: It’s Robe-AH-ti-KAI.

Me: Psff.

[a minute later]

Husband: I thought it was Robo-taki too.
