Conversation with asleep girlfriend, a teacher
I enter the bedroom, where my girlfriend is already fast asleep in anticipation of another day teaching kindergarten students.
Asleep girlfriend: Congratulations.
Me: Thanks. For what?
Asleep girlfriend: For having the numbers.
Me: What numbers?
Asleep girlfriend: Zero to twenty.
Me: Thanks. [girlfriend rolls over and hits me in face as I climb into bed] Oof. Congratulations on hitting me in the face.
Asleep girlfriend: Thanks. I hope you liked it.
Me: I didn’t. Why are you congratulating me for zero to twenty?
Asleep girlfriend: For learning the numbers zero to twenty.
Me: Oh. Well, I learned those a long time ago.
Asleep girlfriend: Well, it’s still hard.
Me: You’re right. I guess I forget that sometimes.
