The Right Opinion

[It was a warm night -- almost too warm for sleeping -- and I was thinking of getting up to turn on the air conditioning...]

Laura: "Before you go turning up anything you should consider removing a blanket. That's just my opinion ... but it's the right one."

Cricket playing

[We were talking about how we both hate ironing...]

Laura: "Ironing is hard."
Jack: "I know, it's not worth it."
Laura: "And it gets in the way of playing."
Jack: "Cricket playing, eh? How's that going?"
Laura: "Well, it's fun, but I feel bad for the crickets!"

[I was about to take Brianna to her swimming lesson and Laura was hoping I would stop at Starbucks on the way home...]

Laura: "I bet I know what you would like to do on the way home."
Jack: "I bet I know what you're going to ask."
Laura: "I bet I know what you WOULD LIKE to do on the way home."
Jack: "You could have a career in brainwashing."
Laura: "It's not so much 'washing' as it is 'beating into submission'."
