. . .I’m standing there while two people have a discussion/argument. The problem was they were stuck in the mire. Neither would budge and, in my world, endless repetition is considered boring.
Being the so called expert in their subject I tried to help. Shed a little light on the situation, if you will.
“I’m pretty sure I can help get to the bottom of this,” I offer. When I offer that I usually don’t get a response such as,
“Are you sure?”
I look in my hands. Yes, those are the keys to the building so, yeah, pretty much sure about this.
“Of course I am!” I use my pretend helpful tone. “After all, it would behoove you to remember I graduated summa cum last in my class.”
