While Stephen was setting up his voicemail on his phone:
Stephen: Meg!? Hey Meg!?
Stephen: What the heck is a pound key?? There is no pound symbol on this phone and it’s telling me to hit the pound key.
::walks over to him and points to the # on the phone::
Me: It’s this one…
Stephen: That is a hashtag. I don’t understand you Americans sometimes.
Me: You can imagine my confusion when twitter happened. I kept saying “pound” instead of “hashtag” in my head.
While driving and someone cuts us off:
Stephen: Ugh stupid pleb
Me: What is a pleb???
Stephen: You know, like base.
Me: What is a base?? You can’t give me an example of a word with another word I don’t know.
Stephen: base is the lowest of the low. A commoner.
Me: Oh. Good one.
Stephen: Babe, you know what I just realized the other day?
Stephen: Why you guys have those little bags of crackers at restaurants
Stephen: People put them in their soups! What are those crackers called again?
Me: like Saltines?
Stephen: Ya those. People put them in their soups! I find that so strange.
Me: How was your day?
Stephen: I was running around all day like a blue arsed fly
Me: Oh. Sounds productive…
