We currently have no fridge in the house, and are just using one in the garage until the new one comes. This is the approximate phone conversation I had with Steph when she called me after work:
Me: Hi babe
Me: You sound well. Did the meeting go well?
Me: Hey, do we have an ice cube trays?
Me: Where would they be?
Me: Where are they?
Steph: Where are who?
Me: The ice cube trays
Me: ICE CUBE TRAYS
Steph: We don’t have any ice cube trays.
(Then I just start laughing.)
Me: I’m just curious. How did this conversation begin for you?
Me: What did you think I said when I asked you if we had ice cube trays and you responded yes?
Steph: Sometimes I can’t hear you well, and I just guess what you say.
Me: What was your guess when I said, “Do we have any ice cube trays?”
Steph: I don’t know. I thought you were just saying something about the meeting.
Me: Do you see how that made this conversation confusing for me?
