We are on Skype having a chat when the phone rings. He is expecting a call, excuses himself, picks it up. I stay online and listen to his end of the conversation, waiting for him to finish. I get a little bored and send him an instant message.
He messages back, “Yes Ma’am…”
There is a smile in his voice as he continues his conversation. I can hear him stifling the grin as he thinks about it. A minute or so later, I hear him say in exaggerated disbelief, “That’s horrendous!!”.
I giggle like a six year old girl, he is trying not to snigger.
I try another one.
“Say ‘reprehensible’.” I message him.
I can hardly stop laughing as I listen, his attention is distracted now, he is trying to work it into the conversation. A short while later he says, “Would she really do something so reprehensible?!”
I am laughing so hard I have tears in my eyes. He sounds like a demented child showing off words he has just learnt in kindergarten.
I am absolutely delighted with this game. I think of another one…
