Commute Convo

Sarah and I clearly don’t spend enough time together during the day, so we often chat via Blackberry Instant Messenger on our train rides home.  Sometimes we look back at our chat history and think our conversation was goofy enough to share with you, our dear reader(s).  And sometimes we just don’t have anything planned, so we cheat and post one of our chats.  I won’t tell you what kind of post this is.  But I will share one of our more recent convos.  Enjoy!

Sarah: Yayay, you’re probably on your way home now! You made it through Monday!

April: Yes, but am soaking and smell like a taxidermist shop after the fire sprinklers went off.

April: Also: forced a guy on a laptop (sitting in the aisle seat!!!) To get up so I could sit down.

Sarah: Hahah, that’s a great metaphor!

Sarah: And glad you made the jerk get up. Hope you dripped on him 😉

April: Wet taxidermy is I.

April: Sure did. And he has to smell me. So there.

April: Couldn’t find my umbrella this morning.

Sarah: Take that, selfish laptop man.

Sarah: It is a take your pants of kind of night 😉  In the soaking wet from commuting way, not the other way…

April: Sho is!  I was thinking that on the way home. Can’t wait!

April: You know how I feel about pantsless evenings.

Sarah: Indeed I do!

April: This might be a pantsless, oversized mullet tee kind of evening.

April: Is it wrong that this also involves “getting jacked” with 24?

Sarah: Don’t forget that also gives you license to drink out of cartons and engage in general slovenliness. I hear that’s how Jack likes his ladies!

April: I’m not so into drinking from the carton. I don’t like the hairiness of the cardboard.

April: Wait, that was silly. My milk comes in a plastic jug. But I don’t like drinking out of that, either. How about if I drink from a can?

April: And why assume Jack likes slovenliness?

Sarah: Drinking from a can is perfect… Personally, I don’t enjoy drinking milk or juice out of cartons, but I enjoy seltzer straight out of the plastic bottle…

Sarah: As for Jack, I just can’t picture him waiting to leave the house – to save the world OR make a 7:30 movie showing – while a gal primps!

April: He’s dated some classy ladies. In fact, his current love interest is a former FBI agent who went undercover with the Russian mafia. She cut off a guy’s hand. That’s pretty bad-ass. And classy. If you enjoy S&M.

April: I think the gal needs to be ready when it’s time to go. Like at my house.

Sarah: Agreed! But was she concerned about her hair or makeup while de-handing that guy?

Sarah: So we are essentially on the same page. Someone who can rock whatever she wears and not hold up the process if she’s having a bad hair day.

April: If I’m not ready, mike makes me leave with wet hair or no mascara. So he’s kind of like Jack Bauer. But I don’t think he’s killed any terrorists today.

April: He might have, though. I haven’t seen him since 7:30am.

April: Exactly.

Sarah: Mike might have to keep certain assassinations on the DL anyway… You know, for your protection and whatnot.

April: Yeah, yeah, yeah… Loose lips sink ships and all that

Sarah: Not that I believe you’d spill state secrets or anything… But why put you in that position in the first place? He’s thoughtful like that.

April: Btw I kind of want to rub my arm against laptop guy so that he acquires my wet taxidermy smell. Is that wrong?

April: I mean, not in a sexual way.

Sarah: It is sooooo right (not in a sexual way).

Sarah: Heck, maybe you should even start reading over his shoulder – then you could annoy him and transfer taxidermy scent in one smooth move!

April: Ruh-roh, I think he’s on to me…

Sarah: What would Jack Bauer do??

April: Waterboard him, probably.

April: I need to watch more spy movies. Not so much Bourne and 24, but movies and shows where there are undercover agents and things like that.

Sarah: Maybe our reader(s) have a suggestion about how a super undercover spy would react in this situation!

April: Ooh good idea! Reader(s)?

  1. You need to watch Underdog. He can share his “wet dog smell” secrets.

    • You know I love Underdog!

  2. I hate drinking from a can. I’m always afraid something will have crawled into the can whilest I looked away for a split second….and now you’re all afraid of that too.

    • No, I was always afraid of that. That’s why I gently swish the can and listen for the sound of some sort of creepy-crawly hitting the side of the can.
