I got a phone call Sunday evening:
Girl: Hi, are you busy?
Me: That depends on how you define busy. If lying on the couch, watching The Dark Knight, and playing Scrabble online is considered busy, then yeah, I'm totally swamped.
Girl: You're a dork.
Me: I know. What are you doing?
Girl: Just getting home.
Me: What are your plans for the rest of the night?
Girl: I'm going to take a nap, then get up and do some homework. Sound like fun?
Me: You could come over here and do homework. It would be nice to see you, but I have work I need to do anyway, so I wouldn't distract you too much.
Girl: I need to take a shower.
Me: I haven't showered today either. Gross, huh?
Girl: That is gross. I did shower once, I just need another one.
Me: Well, you could always come over here, we could shower, and then you could do homework.
Girl: I like how you just casually work that "we" in there.
Me: All I'm saying is that we live in a desert, and that would conserve water, so it's the responsible thing to do.
We talked for a while longer, but she didn't come over. She must hate our planet.
