Me: So get this.
Me: I was just at the convenience store buying Chef Boyardee beef ravioli and Gene Shalit was behind me.
Him: Huh. Nice.
Me: He was like, ‘Oh, you have soup n’ sandwiches now!’ to the owner.
Him: Did he buy beef ravioli too?
Me: No, he was too excited about the soup n’ sandwiches, I think.
Him: Cool sighting. When am I going to meet Karen Allen is what I really want to know, though.
Me: …That’s weird.
Him: Why? She’s a cool chick, you gotta admit. She’s been in some great flicks. Indiana Jones? She was kick-ass. Come on.
Me: I’m not saying she’s not a great actress; I just didn’t know you felt so strongly about her work.
Him: Well that, and Raiders came out when I was at a formidable age.*
Me: I guess it’s not that much different than my fixation on Gary Sinise.
Him: Which is weird.
Me: Is not.
* I think he meant formative.

HA! Did you see Burn After Reading? That reminds me of Clooney’s character, always screwing up words. “In twenty years, I’ve never destroyed my weapon.”
