I’m thankful for conversations like…
Him: I’m thankful that I found you.
Me: That’s sweet and everything, but the fact is that I found YOU.
Him: That’s what you think.
Me: Re-writing history, are we?
Him: Nope. See, most people think that when you meet someone you want, that you have to think like a fox. That you have to be clever like that to get who you want. But when I saw you looking at me like a fox, I thought to myself, “Self? How do you catch a fox? By acting like a CHICKEN, that’s how.”
Me: So, you acted like a chicken? To attract the fox?
Him: (tapping his temple) I had it all figured out, see?
Me: That is the folksiest, oddest thing I have ever heard you say. Have you been watching Dr. Phil?
Him: Laugh all you want. The chicken doesn’t mind. The chicken…is content.
Me: The chicken…is weird.
Him: The fox…is just jealous.
