Me: Doug, look! (Pointing at something of extreme importance.)

Me: Doug LOOK! (Pointing more pointedly.)

D: What? (Without looking up.)

Me: I said 'look!’

D: Just tell me!

Me: When I say 'look', you have to look or you'll miss it.

D: Or you could just tell me...

Me: If I wanted to tell you, I would have told you!

Me: Usually saying “look” means there’s something I want you to see!

D: You’re taking 8 years of baggage and applying it to this situation.

Me: (trying not to laugh while also throwing something at his head.)
(Okay, I didn't throw anything this time, but I would have been totally justified.)

(Sadly, he's right.  It's true!)

Emily! I SO have this same problem! I hate saying look and having nobody look at all. It makes me feel like a dork.
Thanks for making me laugh!

Ginna :)

Hiya Emily! It's Kate here (high school friends of Ang, Steph, Brenda, Lesley, etc. but somehow never really became friends with you...too bad). Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I found your blog and I'm enjoying it. We really should be friends, shouldn't we?
