a conversation i had with my dear friend rachel the other day in crystal's bathroom while gettin gussied up for carmie's wedding:
me: rachie, can i borrow your toothpaste?
rachie: oh...sorry, i didn't bring any.
m: (looking at her toothpaste sticking out of her make-up bag) but...i just saw you using it...
r: no, i really didn't bring any. but crystal might have some.
m: (perplexed that rachie won't share her toothpaste with me) yeah, i couldn't find hers--
r: probably in the kitchen.
m: the kitchen? who keeps their toothpaste in the kitchen?
r: um, everybody.
m: toothpaste? in the kitchen?
r: yes. where else???
m: i keep mine in the bathroom.
r: what for?
r: wait. toothpaste?
