Today I was driving in town with LMC. She was hinting heavily that she wanted to go into town and look at some shops.
I said, “We’re going down Howard Street.”
Bemused, she asked, “Howard Street?”
And I said, “Yes, Howard Street…” and as we crested the hill and she realised it continued into the main street of town, I said, “Howard you like to go down the street?”
She rolled her eyes, and then she said, “Actually that was pretty good. Did you make that up yourself?”
She smiled, thought for a moment, and said, “How odd.”
I smiled too, because that is possibly the word-nerdiest thing she’s ever said.
