New Low

me: i really wished i hadn’t lost my nail clippers
Annie: why don’t you get new ones?
me: cause i know they’re still here
as soon as i buy another ill find the first pair and be furious
Annie: or you could just have two
me: nope
just furious
Annie: hang on to it in case you lose it again
yeah that seems more sensible
me: that would be the third pair of nail clippers i bought in six months
is that right?
pair of nail clippers?
Annie: I think so
me: doesn’t seem right
but neither does pair of scissors
Annie: but now that I think about it it doesn’t make sense
me: right?
Annie: pair of pants
