Me: Darn it. The button doesn't work on my phone. I mean, it's sporadic. It doesn't work so well in the cold.
SH: I don't have a problem with my ["new Android tablet," as he instructed me to call it]. Some people are having quality problems with it but I have not.
Me: Oh. [I return to my book because my commentary is done. I have advised SH of the problem and I want him to fix it but I do not want to discuss the process for fixing it.]
SH: Look. It has a soft key. Your phone doesn't. [My phone has a mechanical key.]
Me: I don't care.
SH: But this is interesting! Look--
Me: I don't care. It's technical and it's boring.
SH: No it isn't! Besides, you talk all the time about boring things.
Me: Nope. My stories are good.
What this all really reduces to is that I, apparently, am Jewish and SH is not. Who knew?
