(Earlier in the day)
Her: Why aren't you wearing clothes?
Me: I just got out of the shower.
(Later in the day)
Her: Why are you wearing clothes?
Talking about age
Her: You're only eight and a half years older.
Her: That's only slightly creepy.
That was encouraging...
Cleaning her room
Her: Look! I cleaned my room!
(Meanwhile the camera is pointing at the ceiling.
Her: Ahhh! There's still dust over there!
Taking a nap
One day she felt tired so she decided to take a nap in the middle of the afternoon. Unfortunately, she slept for so long we almost missed dinner. Also unfortunately, she fell asleep on my arm and pinned me there for a few hours. I wasn’t even that tired…
Crying over food
Her: I (sniff) really like (sniff sob) sweet potato (sniffle sob) burritos (sob cry).
Me: Hey, you don't need to cry over sweet potato burritos.
Hooking up circuits (again)
Me: Are you sure it's hooked up correctly?
Her: Let me check... what the? Why is this wire missing?
Her: i doing something wrong with reset_n
Her: i think the TA made it slightly righter, but now i'm more confused....
It seems like the engineering part of her brain overloaded the language part.
Hooking up circuits
She couldn’t figure out why her circuit wasn’t working so I asked her if she hooked up up the inputs in the right order. She said, “Of course!” I took a look and said, “No, it’s in the wrong order. Fix it and run it again.” After taking a few minutes to fix the connections, she said, “Yeah, that fixed a lot of failures.”
Today she was browsing swimsuits online. I told her that I need to get new swim trunks too. She asked me what kind of swim trunks I have. I told her, “I don’t have swim trunks, I only have racing speedos.” Then she asked, “What do those look…” and then burst into laughter. After laughing for a few minutes, I commented on how she didn’t even finish the...
Checking test cases
While debugging her homework, I told her to check her test cases. She said she already did so I asked her to let me see them. Turns out a whole section had a typo.
Getting a hair cut
Me: I need to get a haircut next week. It's getting long.
Her: Ok, just don't cut it too long.
Me: Did you just say too long?
Text message from her: “I don’t understand these squiggly lines that are your life” Apparently she isn’t very good at logic design.
Losing her cell phone
One time she lost her cell phone in my car. I found it and hid it in her room. Then I bet her $20 that her phone was in her room and not in my car. Later that night, I got a text message that said, “You cheated!” I guess she found her phone.
Placing the output
Today I was helping her do homework and she was getting annoyed when I kept telling her to put the inputs on the left and the outputs on the right. Her circuit didn’t work and we spent almost 2 hours debugging it. It turns out she put the output on the wrong side.
Waiting for a sign
Her text message: “I was waiting for a sign and i think this is it. I hate the east coast.” I think going to school on the East Coast is silly. By the way, it was 70F back home in California.
Poking people in the eye
I never told her this, but one time she fell asleep in my arms and then poked me in the eye.
me: still doing hw?
her: well, it's due tomorrow night...
her: haven't really started haha...
Today she tried to take my picture using my DSLR. I told her how to use it and let her try. Instead of photographing me, she took a picture of the guy behind me eating his soup.
Today she brought me dinner after work. As I unpacked the boxes, I asked her what was inside one. She said, “I don’t know, I brought scalloped potatoes and chicken wings.” Well, there were 3 containers on the table and I could see the potatoes and chicken so I opened the last box and found some asparagus. She said, “Oh yeah… vegetables.”
Today she wanted to go out so she spent about half an hour trying on different outfits. After I tell her that she looks nice, she jumps onto her bed and says, “I think I’m going to go to sleep instead.”
I woke up late today. When I met up with her, she had already eaten lunch. I didn’t eat anything yet so I got some pizza for lunch. She still ate half of it. Good thing I ordered a large.
Talking about the weather
Me: Is it still cold?
Her: No, it's a lot warmer now. It's gotten up to the 20s, maybe even early 30s.
Me: You mean low 30s?
Her: Maybe I should stop going to sorority events.
Getting a glass of water
Today she was trying to get a glass of water using the refrigerator dispenser. Unfortunately, she held the cup in the wrong place and splashed water all over the floor.
Using a bluetooth headset again
(After hanging up suddenly)
Her: Sorry, I accidentally pushed the button on the bluetooth.
Me: I warned you about that.
(A few minutes later...)
Me: What happened?
Her: I accidentally pushed the hang up button on the phone.
