Gina: Did you mail that letter I gave you at the airport?

Dennis: What letter?

Gina: The letter I gave you.

Dennis: The email?

Gina: No. The letter.

(long pause)

Dennis: Oh! That!

(long pause)

Gina: Do you know where it is?

Dennis: Yes. (pause) Of course.

Gina: Where is it?

Dennis: In my backpack.

Gina: Why is it in your backpack?

Dennis: Because you gave it to me.

Gina: I gave it to you at the airport. You put it in your jacket pocket.

Dennis: Yeah.

Gina: Is it in your jacket pocket?

Dennis:  Yes.

Gina: How do you know?

Dennis: I felt it there.

Gina: When?

Dennis: Today.

Gina: Why didn’t you mail it?

Dennis: I just forgot about it.

Gina: Don’t forget to mail it. It has my social security number on it.

Dennis: I won’t. (pause) G, I gotta go. I gotta eat my dinner now.

(long pause)

Gina: You’re going to look for the letter, aren’t you?

Dennis: (laughing, caught red handed) I looooovvvvvve you!

Gina: (pause) Where’s the letter, Dennis?


Dennis: Oh, I found– I know exactly where it is.

Gina: You “found” it? Where’s the letter, Dennis?

Dennis: In my backpack.

Gina: It’s not in your jacket?

Dennis: No. It’s in my backpack. I saw it there today.

Gina: Don’t forget to mail it.

Dennis: I’m writing it down on my hand.

Gina: No, you’re not.

Dennis: Yes, I am.

Gina: No, you’re not. You’re in the hallway. Why would you have a pen in the hallway?

Dennis: (pause.) I just have a pen.  I’m writing “Gina” on my thumb.

Gina: “‘Gina’ on your thumb?”

Dennis: Yes. I had “Joe” there originally, so now I just scratched it out and wrote “Gina.”

Gina: Why did you write “Joe” on your thumb?

Dennis: I didn’t have a notebook.

Gina:  (typing the beginning of the conversation) I gotta call you back. I’ll call you right back. This is too good.

Love this post because it sounds exactly like Richard and I. Haha. LOVE the package from that I received yesterday in the mail. The entire envelope smelled heavenly. The colors match perfectly to many of the colors our home holds and what Rich calls a chicken has found its spot in my kitchen. Primary colors are my absolute favorite. You are such a sweetheart! We must meet some day.

I’m so glad you like the gifts!! I forgot to translate the card attached to the rooster, but it was something like “The rooster symbolizes prosperity and fullness in your life.” I forget the exact words.
