Him:  I’m 25; I’m old.

Me:  You’re 24, what kind of a person doesn’t know how old they are?

Him:  Whatever, 24.. 25.. They’re basically the same.

Me:  No, they’re not.

Him: Yes, they are.

Me: 24 is not basically 25 !!

Him:  Even if I were binary, the difference would be between
eleven thousand and one [11001] and eleven thousand [11000].
Both the difference is exactly one, ergo, they are basically the same.

Me: … If you’re DNA was off by one, you’d be a dolphin.

Him: You’re quoting House?

Me: Mmm hmm.

Him: Damn you.

“A conversation is a dialogue, not a monologue. That’s why there are so few good conversations: due to scarcity, two intelligent talkers seldom meet.”
