With friends like these...

Dufort: "May I make a suggestion?"
Me: "Of course."
Dufort: "When I'm 80, we give it a go."
Me: "Romantically?
Dufort: "2056. That'll be our year."
Me: "I'll still be gay in 2056."
Dufort: "Who knows? Maybe I'll be gay by then too!"
Me: "Your plan would work better if you were a woman by 2056."

You can take the girl out of the northeast but you can't take the northeast out of the girl

Lying in bed last night with Renee, trying to get to sleep, playing the alphabet game.  Subject: cars.  We get all the way to Z and it's my turn.

Me: "Hmmm... would you count zamboni?"
Renee: "What's a zamboni?"
Me: "Oh my gosh!  Ha ha!  I forgot that not everyone was raised on the Canadian border and watches hockey.  It's the machine-thing they use to smooth the ice.  I want to drive one!  They're so cool!!"
Renee: "OK, you can count your 'zambia' thing.  We should go to a game sometime."
