Hasn’t Quite Nailed Analogies

| CO, USA | Romantic | October 22, 2012

(I work at home as tech support. The computer I work from is in the same room as my boyfriend’s computer. He is sitting at his computer, playing a game. There have been no tech support calls for over an hour.)

Me: “Okay, so I’m now on a two hour lunch.”

Boyfriend: “Congrats.”

Me: “I guess the queue is a door nail.”

Boyfriend: “A what?”

Me: “A door nail. As in, ‘dead as a’?”

Boyfriend: “A what?”

(I knock on my wooden desk to appease the Idle gods.)

Boyfriend: *without looking from his screen* “You should probably get that. Someone’s at the door.”
