This phone call took place earlier this week while Jeremy was in the Wal-Mart parking lot and I was at the house. He had been next door at Lowe's (his Favorite Store in the Entire World) and was about to drive back home.
Jeremy: Do you need anything from Wal-Mart before I head home?
Kristen: (Pause while thinking silently, "There was that one thing - what was it?") Hmmmm....
Jeremy: Don't think too long. I was only asking to be nice.
Kristen: See, any points you might have gained by asking were deleted by the fact that you said you were only asking to be nice. That was a wash. I don't guess I need anything, though.
Jeremy: (Laughing) But I did buy you some potting soil because I knew you needed it.
Kristen: Oh, thanks! I did need it. You get five bonus points for that. Well, I don't guess I need you to get anything at Wal-Mart today. I mean, I need one or two things, but I'm just going to wait until a bigger Wal-Mart trip later. I guess.
Jeremy: Good, 'cause I've already left the parking lot.
Later we'll talk about how he didn't cry at Toy Story 3...the 3-D glasses were just "hurting his nose" right there at the emotional end of the movie. ;) Heh.
