Carly: I'm $2 short to get free shipping on my Amazon.com order. Do you want to order something?
Laurie: Sure. Let me check my "shopping cart." (Note: My Amazon.com "shopping cart" has so much stuff in it that I have nightmares that Amazon will accidentally order all that stuff and I'll have to get a second job to pay for it all.)
Laurie: I'll order "Paranormal Uncensored." It's written by that guy I took a ghost hunting class from in Lafayette.
Carly: You owe me $17.00
Laurie: Weird! I have exactly $17.00 in my wallet. It's a sign.
FIVE DAYS LATER:
Carly (handing me my book): Here you go.
Laurie: What's that? Hey, that book's written by the guy I took that ghost hunting class from.
Carly (looking at me with a strange look on her face): Uh...you ordered it...Amazon...free shipping...
Laurie: Oh, yeah. HAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!! How much do I owe you?
Carly: Uh...you paid me...$17...exact change...you made a big deal about the fact that you had the exact change.
Laurie: Hahahahaha!!!!! Right, right, right. Thanks.
Carly looked at me again with a puzzled, worried look on her face then quietly walked away.
Did I mention that Carly's only 27-ish? When she's 53-ish she'll understand.
