Review: That thing you did - A review of ambiguity

Hey, you know that thing you did? No, not that one, that was with your brother-in-law. Yes it was. I remember the pictures you showed everybody. Yes I'm sure. I'm talking about that thing you did yesterday when I was sitting in the chair and you came up from behind. I was all comfortable and quiet watching Wheel of Fortune. Not ringing any bells?

Well if I remember correctly Vanna White had just made an 'S' appear on the screen. Evidently, doesn't she flip them anymore? Seems like all she does now is touch a screen. I don't know, I haven't watched it in at least ten years. Well you were the one who left it on, I was just visiting. Wait, this is getting off topic. Back to that thing you did. No I already said that was with your brother-in-law. Somehow I think you're avoiding the truth.

I was watching wheel and you were supposed to be off in the kitchen, doing... what were you doing? Well first you invite me over, then you disappear into the kitchen for an hour. You didn't make dinner or anything, you were just there. Then when you came in I was calling out a guess at the TV. No, in hindsight I should have known that "S_ _  O_   _   B_ _ CH" was "sun on a beach" because the "o" had already been used. I believe I already apologized for that mistake.

Wait a second. How would you remember that if you don't remember what you did? Because what you did followed immediately after. Well? You can hide behind that sheepish grin all you want, but I know you remember now. I just wanted that to be in your mind. Why? I want you to remember that thing you did so you'll understand clearly when I do this.

  1. I'm really sorry. I didn't mean to do it, I'm sure. And honestly, I really don't remember doing anything. In fact I have no idea what you're talking about. But, to be honest, it sounds like something I'd do. So, again, sorry.

  5. Sorry man. You left your pants off and I figured it was an invitation for trouble. This is as much your fault as it is mine.

  7. I hate leaving comments like this, but...TS? You're amazing. Thank you for making us laugh, for lifting us up when you probably couldn't feel lower. It's just that thing you do, you know which one.
