Scene: 4 friends sitting around a table, sipping cocktails and munching on chips and dip.
Friend: (standing up) Can I get anyone anything?
Me: I'll have a glass of wine. Oh, and some water. I mean, some water in a separate glass. Not in the wine. You know, (using hands to shape 2 separate glasses) some wine in a glass and some water in a glass.
What does that say about me? I mean, what kind of person needs to qualify their request for water like that? (see post dated Aug 29th)
