Two Pointless Conversations

“Did you set the alarm for 5:11am and turn the radio to static?”

“No.”

“Ah.  So it was Elizabeth then.”

“I know this is kind of a silly thing to tell you, but my mom thinks she left her ring here.”

“Okay.”

“So if you happen to see a diamond ring lying around, let me know, okay?  I mean, even though I figure that is something you’d mention without me telling you to mention it.”

P.S.  If you have an alarm clock with dual alarms and the baby set one of the alarms for the wee hours of the morning, check the other alarm before you go back to sleep, okay?  It’s probably on too.
