I have tried to shampoo my hair with conditioner the last three showers. I caught myself this last time, and in response to the cursing, Gary asked, "Why do you keep thinking there's shampoo in that bottle? It's obviously conditioner. It's a white bottle."
"What are you talking about?"
"Conditioner. It always comes in a white bottle. The same color that conditioner always is."
I was distracted by trying to think of a joke that could take advantage of "conditioner" and "comes" in the same sentence and it took a moment to understand what he was saying. I argued then, of course, and told him he was insane, but is he right? Is he even partially right? I'm thinking he might be. It shakes me. He's been right about several things the last few days;in fact he's lately crowed, "Who almost has a biology degree? Why do you even try to argue with me?" in a disagreement about germs.
Are even the majority of conditioner bottles white? Is he right about that too?
