Brian: "Oh I quite like the way you just said that I think I will use it."
Me: "No problem - I won't even require attribution."
Brian: "You are rather good with words. Did you go to some rhetorical or political school when you were younger?"
Me: "No. I just talk a lot so, eventually, something intelligent is bound to come out."
Brian: [Laughter] [Because he knows I talk a lot]
Me: "It is like having a bunch of monkeys banging on typewriters for a long enough period of time...you'll eventually get War and Peace."
Brian: [Laughter] [Because he knows of my fondness for tire swings in cages]
