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."
