Saturday, Feb 14th, I entered Walmart at 6:40 AM
for the next five minutes I entertained myself by standing and watching the SEVEN men who were shopping the candy, cards and flowers that filled the aisles .
The mid twenties, movie star gorgeous man had a GIANT box of candy under his arm, a $25 dollar bouquet in his hand while browsing cards.
(my thought was handsome and has money)
Each of them stood and carefully selected, picking up and putting down, concentrating so carefully on finding just the right one.
Should I get 5 dollar Flowers With Candy or 25 dollar flowers and no candy.
I kid you not, I was having a blast and
I watched as a man dressed in black leather jacket, black T-shirt with skulls on it, boots and long hair, stepped in the door and stopped in front of the display of some kind of X box game called magic. the games had skulls and crossbones on them, he studied them all carefully and then with a HUGE sigh he shrugged his shoulders and left the games and wandered reluctantly to the cards and candy.
I laughed and left, although I wanted to spend the morning.
Bob and I have so many Conversations by rote, I decided to share two that are used over and over in our house.
(no, I just felt like saying that)
Sandra: Do you want another cup of coffee?
Bob; Yes, if there is enough.
(really there isn't, i just wanted to ask if you WANTED one)
the most famous of them all is
Hi, How are you? Fine, how are you?
Can you think of examples of mechanical conversations?
