Wednesday afternoon I was walking Girl Who Won't Be My Girlfriend to her class.
GWWBMGF: I'm going to be late.
Me: No you're not. You have plenty of time.
GWWBMGF: Not when I have to walk this slow. My feet hurt from walking around in these heels all day at work.
Me: You should keep some flip-flops in your car. Then you could just change into them when you get to campus.
GWWBMGF: You say that every day.
Me: I mean it every day.
GWWBMGF: Well, do you have any flip-flops*? No. So it's really not that helpful.
Me: I'm just sayin'.
A few minutes later we arrived at her classroom.
GWWBMGF: Alright, I have to go. I'm late.
Me: No you're not. You've still got six minutes.
GWWBMGF: Oh. So you're right.
Me: Of course I am. You should believe me more often. I am a doctor**.
* The next time I saw her I handed her a pair of flip-flops and said, "See? This is why you should love me."
** That will never get old. It almost makes getting this Ph D worth it. Almost.
