Random stuff heard around the house

Gasoline Conversation

We were driving home tonight and I saw some gas prices.

Me: How come they always do 9/10 of a gallon? Why isn’t it just a gallon?

Rich: Huh?

Me: It reads $3.63 and 9/10

Rich: That’s the price.

Me: Huh? It’s 9/10 of a gallon.

Rich: No it’s not, that’s the price. It just makes it look cheaper.

Me: So if I see $3.63 and 9/10 I’m really paying $3.64? I never knew that all these years.

Rich: I wouldn’t tell anyone.



DJ Conversation

We were at Sam’s Club tonight and they had this DJ set up where you could mix your own music. It had lights and all kinds of neat stuff.

Me: We could totally get that and open our own business. We’d call it DJ Kim and Rocking Rich. I’d get one of those electronic mouse heads too!

Rich: …………..


Two Short Conversations of Dumbness

Me: I can’t believe my friend Amy was hit by a truck and she didn’t get the guy’s info. I know if some guy hit me while I was pregnant I’d be calling the cops.

Rich: Are you freaking kidding me?

Me: What?

Rich: It was metaphorical. She was saying she wasn’t feeling good and felt like she’d been hit by a truck.

Me: Oh……


Melissa: (telling me something about Teen Mom)

Me: I watch some of those too but mostly just that season with Janelle and Tiffany.

Melissa: Yeah but you know what is stupid? They always show every scenario about the teen moms like having the baby and keeping it, having it and adopting it out and all. But you know they never show if they were to get an abortion.

Me: Then it wouldn’t be called Teen Mom.

Melissa: Oh…..


Amazon Conversation

I’ve always been fascinated by the Amazon (no, not the one I get neat gifts from) and last night we were watching The River so that inspired me to look up trips to the Amazon.

Me: These are not that expensive.

Rich: Yeah but you have to find your way there.

Me: True. Is a visa the same as a passport?

Rich: No, those are those special ones where they can just say no to you.

Me: Okay then, Brazil is out. We’ll just go to Peru or Ecuador. Did you know there are thousands of fruits in the Amazon that we have never tried here in the West? We only have like 200 of them.

Rich: We’d probably get to try the Durian or something.

Me: True. It also says that Malaria and Yellow Fever shots are recommended. Plus, they have night trips and you have to bring a lighted hat. Think I’ll pass on the whole night in the jungle thing.

Me: I do want to see some natives that have never seen other people. They’d be like, “Hula Hula.”

Rich: WTF
