An actual conversation from my house this evening —
Nicole: What do you suppose Guy Glodis will do once he’s no longer sheriff?
husband: He should open a diner.
(At this point, if you could have taken my picture, you could’ve put it in the dictionary to illustrate the definition of “nonplused“.)
Nicole: A diner? What sort of diner?
husband: One that sells hamburgers. I bet he’d make good hamburgers.
(Husband looks pensive for a moment.)
husband: I suppose it’s just a coincidence that the local Big Boy restaurants all closed up around the time Guy first ran for office.
