Josh suggested that I buy the FOFA. I love it! Christmas idea, anyone?
The vice presidential debates are tonight. I can't lie, I really want to watch them because there seems to be the possibility of some pretty good lines. We'll have to see...
But I don't know why I feel like I can make fun of other people for mixing up things during interviews. When I'm put on the spot, I'm awful at answering questions!!
Dan and I have these friends, who we actually hang out with quite a bit. They are very scholarly and so we can have some pretty intense conversations with them. Usually, I can hold my own as long as we are just skating along the surface of a topic. There have been a few times, however, when one of them asked me a question and I felt like a complete idiot. Observe:
::We are talking about our favorite authors and books::
R: I love CS Lewis!
Kristi: Oh me too! I loved The Screwtape Letters and Mere Christianity.
R: Oh those were good; of course they're some of his more popular works. What else have you read of his?
Dan: Well, we've read the Chronicles of Narnia.
::It gets even worse::
R: Well, uh, that's great...what are some of your other favorite works of literature?
Kristi (searching frantically in my mind for something, anything, but all I can think of this book I'm currently reading, which is The Nanny Diaries!)
Dan: Um, well, I really like Spanish books, you probably wouldn't know any of them.
Kristi: Uhh... Pride and Prejudice? (The only remotely "literary" novel that I can think of)
R: Oh, okay...(awkward)...well, if you ever want to borrow any of CS Lewis's other books sometime, just let me know.
We are awful. The sad part is, we both love to read. It's just something about being put on the spot like that which turns people into complete idiots! Anyone have any of your own good stories?
