Some People ….

You know, despite his obvious intelligence, sometimes OC really isn’t very bright. For instance, we were sitting in our favorite late-night diner and the air conditioning had left me a bit chilled. I said, “I’m cold. Here, touch.” And I offered him my arm.

OC touched my arm which was indeed chilled and he said, “Hmmm, maybe I should get you a hoody for Christmas.”

A hoody? I said, “My head is perfectly warm. It would be better if you got me a sleevie.”

Then he gave me that look and said, “Quite.” — like I was the one who didn’t make any sense. Can you believe it?


  1. hah! cracking up here because that also reminds me of a silly joke (where did Mussolini keep his little army? In his little sleevie.) tell me again how a guy who so enjoys TALKING TO HIMSELF can look at YOU as tho’ YOU were the one missing a few marbles (or puka shells, as the case may be)??

    that said, his post in the Snark is pretty funny. Mele Kalikimaka, Quilly! 🙂

  2. Brian — air conditioners running full blast when it is only 76F is what doesn’t make any sense!

    Neva — yep — that’s a version of the joke I was thinking of when I made my quip to OC.

    Mele Kalikimaka to you, too!

    Polona — I pretty much agree.

  3. Hmmmm… I’m finding this whole idea of “air conditioning” in December quite fascinating! Oh… that’s not the subject at hand is it… nor at arm… nor at head… hmmm… Well… I hope the two of you get this all straightened out before you freeze to death!

  4. Melli — year round air conditioning. Most times I appreciate it, but Zippy’s Restaurant and the school I work at are just a bit over zealous about winter cool.

  5. Air conditioning is such a waste of the Earth’s resources. There are many more earth-friendly and efficient cooling methods. It blows my mind how “comfort at this moment” is so often placed on a higher priority than “future livability of the planet” – especially as their version of “comfort” wasn’t terribly comfortable.

  6. Well, Hawaii is really big on Christmas. I have come to the conclusion that many people have decided if the cannot have snow outside, they’ll make it inside!

    You’ll be happy to know we use the trade winds for air conditioning. We just open the windows …

  7. No, No, No. You see, OC—being a man—knows that 73% of the body’s heat is lost through the head and that, because of such, at least 47% of the heat lost from your arm is directly attributable to the loss of the heat from your head in the first place. See? See?

    (you’re welcome, oc. you can pay me the other ten next week. G)
