Hung out last night for dinner and drinks with friends. On my way home this happened:
Male Friend I ran into on train: Have you been drinking?
MF: You’re drunk?
Me: Nope. Inebriated.
MF: What’s the difference?
Me: A) I can still pronounce it easily. B) I can still spell it slowly. C) You’re attractive, but not nearly enough for me to have illicit thoughts. D) I actually thought the words “illicit thoughts”.
MF: Damn. Even inebriated you’re cold.
For the record, even when sober, I spell inebriated slowly.
Let’s see how other’s are slicing it up this Saturday:
Like the way you differentiate between “drunk” and “inebriated”.
Too funny! You should write dialogue- this is rich!
I love how definite and clear you were, even while i-n-e-b-r-i-a-t-e-d.
You had me at snark. I love that this exchange occurred and that you shared it. I’m smiling right now. Long live the snark!
