Conversations Out of Context

My sister, Diana, and I had the great fortune of spending two weeks together. Although we’re separated by 900 miles, we always have fun when we’re united. To provide a taste of what we’re like when we’re with one another, I’ve taken our most memorable conversations out of context.

1. The Seatbelt

Going for a ride in our sidecar motorcycle:

Diana: Where’s the seatbelt?

Me: It’s a motorcycle – there aren’t any seatbelts. That’s why you’re wearing a helmet.

2. The Driver

As I’m driving:

Diana: Why are your arms straight?

Me: So I can reach the steering wheel. It’s important to vehicular safety to hold the steering wheel when you drive.

3. The Refrigerator

Standing in the kitchen:

Diana: Do you have a refrigerator?

Me: Yes, it’s that big box you’re leaning against.

4. My Visit

After I arrived at her house:

Diana: Does Stephen know you’re here?

Me: Yes. He drove me to the airport.

Diana might say this is all

However, I assure you, to the best of my memory, the quotes are accurate. If Diana was telling the story, she might present

But this is my story and I’m sticking to it.

May the farce be with you!

Your IFF,
