The Candidate's Wife: Nobody ever said, "I wish that guy had talked longer!"

Me: You wrote, "Listen to inspiring speeches!" on your post about your karaoke fundraiser.

Primo: I know!

Me: Because that's what everyone wants to do - hear speeches.

Primo: Oh! You're right!

Me: Yeah, don't talk about forcing people to listen to speeches.

Primo: I need to change that from "listen to inspiring speeches" to "hear inspiring speeches!"

Me: Ummm. I think you are missing the point.

The Candidate's Wife: How an engineer packs (so not political, actually, unless one of you guys can think of a way to apply this to politics - I can't)

Me: I packed my Bon Appetit magazine. Where is it?

Primo: Oh. I moved it to a different suitcase.

Me: Why?

Primo: Because it was the only magazine in the pink suitcase. I put it with the other books.

Me: You mean you moved it for aesthetics.

Primo: Yes. It was the right thing to do.

Me: It's a suitcase. Of dirty clothes.
