You Should Be an "English Teacher"

Today I had quite the lovely of loveliest conversations. Well, not really. That was me trying to put a positive spin on it. I do think it was amusing though.

He: "I don't know what you think about Willmar, but my cousin started using drugs as soon as he went there for college."

Me: "That was his choice, not the city's choice. I lived there most of my life and I've never done drugs."

He: "I guess."

I get that certain towns can have certain reputations. I get that, I really do. However, it's just like any other stereotype or prejudiced situation. Generally, it doesn't apply to everyone. Just a few who make a bad name for the whole deal. My current town is nicknamed "Sleazy Eye" by the surrounding towns. Well, again, I know that most of the people in this town are not sleazy. They're old. Ew.

Second conversation with same person that amused me....

We were playing Phase 10. I was winning. Well, not really. I was able to complete a phase and discard before he was able to lay his phase down. I was referred to as a cheater. Um, no, sorry sir. I was behind you a phase for a couple rounds. Then I caught up and surpassed you.


He: "That's it. I redrawl."

Me: "......what?"

He: "I redrawl!"

Me: "Withdrawl?"

He: "Whatever. Geez, Cat. You should be an 'English Teacher'."

I was about to point out that air quotes weren't necessary in that sentence, but I decided that it was probably a moot point.
