I don't know why, but Gary and I have been having communication problems lately.
At least five times in the last week one of us has shouted, "I DISTINCTLY HEARD YOU SAY THE WORDS [fill in the blank]" followed by "I NEVER SAID THAT. I NEVER SAID [fill in the blank]" followed by "YES YES YOU DID I HEARD IT WITH MY OWN EARS WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU."
And it's both of us. And on top of that, the problem arises immediately. I'll say, "So, I see, you did [XYZ]" and he will shout "I NEVER DID [ABC] HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT" and then "I NEVER SAID [ABC] I SAID [XYZ]" etc., see above.
I think I know what's going on now, because at 6:36 this morning, I was coming out of the bathroom and I heard him say, "Hey, Ellen, got a minute? I need you."
I padded into the room. "You need me for something?"
"How did you know I wanted to talk to you?"
Because you just said, "Got a minute? I need you."
"I didn't say anything."
"I DISTINCTLY HEARD -- Oh. It's this again."
So evidently we've been communicating telepathically, and we're new at it, hence our communication difficulties.
