the way life should be

a few select vacation conversations. 

kt: "i think that truck is on fire."
me: "oh. wanna get the hell outta here?"

michael: "i hadn't really noticed the twin thing before."
me: "that's because you haven't been hearing us look at each other."

kt: "there's no... you know...?"
me: "i know!"

me: "the trick to walking in sand is shorter steps."
kt: "uh, then i'll be prancing." 

kt: "our vacation is complete."
mark: "oh, don't say that. that's sad."
kt: "no, it's good. it means we've met all of our goals!"
me: "oh, because it's not a vacation if you don't have goals!"

me: "trees... trees... TREES!"
kt: "you know, when you say it like that, it makes it sound like the trees are running into the road. please only use Urgent Voice when something is really urgent."
and, of course, quotes...
"by the way... you just totally turned on a red left arrow. over the train tracks, no less." - kt, on my driving skills
"why would you want a road that does that??" - kt, on us immediately looping back onto i-90 in watertown 
"paul revere is scattered all over the city." - me, on the amount of historic paul revere monuments in boston
"that hole goes to new york!" - kt, on the descending i-90 west entrance at copley square 
"we've been within three feet of each other all week." - kt, on being within three feet of each other all week
"something smells like fishy ocean water." - kt, on driving through maine
"i notice you have a quick downward spiral from 'munchy' to 'hungry' in about five minutes." - kt, on my eating needs
"my bag smells like vacation." - kt, on unpacking

Good quotes are how you can tell you had a good time.

Looks and sounds like you guys had a blast.
You sound totally chill. That's awesome.
