All Choked Up

After nearly choking (don't forget to chew your food) at the dinner table:

Her: Well, that was a funny face.
Me: I was choking.
Her: Thought I was going to have to break out the heimlich.
Me: Could be a fun way to spend the evening.
Her: Yeah, right.
Me: Seriously, give a point system to objects in the kitchen. You know, like targets.
Her: Ok. So how many points would the microwave be if I hit it with whatever you were choking on?
Me: 10 points.
Her: Okay, how about the wine bottle over there?
Me: 100 because thats a smaller target.
Her: And one of the cats?
Me: Ahh, moving targets. 250 per cat.
Her: Is there a bonus for the ceiling fan?
Me: Well, its 100 for the fan then double heimlich score for whatever the food item hits as it bounces off the fan.
Her: And how many points just for sitting here watching you choke?
Me: None. A dead husband and a seat in hell.
Her: Ok. I'll just go for the cats then.

Love it. That's a lot like the conversation Matt & I had today about the food at the scary buffet place we ate at.

Ha! I love conversations between two people. They seem perfectly normal at the time but when you replay it, you realize it's really just funny.

[500 points for not letting you choke]

When I was totally bored in school years and years and years ago, I would focus on my notebook and simply write down every single little noise or comment that I could hear in the room. Try this with a room full of people. Don't know why your conversation reminded me of this, it just did.
