Sometimes Robert and I have to speak in code when we want to surprise Bethany with a special treat. She never misses anything! Robert planned to pick up some of her favorite carry-out for supper, so this was our conversation by the back door:
  • Robert: I’m going now.
  • Me: Okay…wait…are you going to stop by thingy for the thingies?
  • Robert: Yes. But first, I need to go to the place for doo-lollies. Then I will go to thingy for the thingies. Got it?


  • Me: That makes sense. I understand you perfectly.
