Now, Internet, we know each other fairly well by now, don't we? So, let's assume you have just returned home from a restful week in L.A., to find that I, your friendly neighborhood house-sitter, have faithfully fed, watered, and exercised your dog, retrieved your mail, protected your home from intruders, and even dutifully composted my banana peels. Now, Internet, if I said to you, "Ok, I'm about done here. I just need to clean out my pot and I'll be on my way," would you a) assume I had made some pasta and left the pot to soak in the sink or b) gasp loudly, exclaim What?! and scurry off to check your dog's pupils?
And, knowing me as you do, when faced with the second reaction, do you think I would clarify you as to your mistake, or reply, "Oh, I thought you guys were cool?"
Or, at least, can you guess which one I wish I had said?
