Trinny in Jozi

Family conversation XLIII

with 4 comments

Nim: Do you have a towel for me?
T: Ja, take the blue and white one with ships on it hanging in the bathroom.
Nim: There is no towel with ships on it.
T: There are two towels in the bathroom. One is plain blue. One is blue and white with ships on it.
Nim: There is no towel with ships on it.
T: Okay, perhaps I was wrong then. Just take the blue and white towel!
Nim: Are you in a bad mood?
T: No, are you in a bad mood?
Nim: No.
T: Okay, I´ll come and show you the blue and white towel with ships on it then.
(Goes to bathroom; there is no towel with ships on it.)
Nim: Ha! Just because something is blue and white, it´s not necessarily a nautical theme. Especially if it
doesn´t have ships on it.

The score
Trinny: 0
Nim: 1

  1. I have several blue-and-white towels. I think I will also start calling them “The Towel with Ships on”. At least you will know which towel to use when you come to stay.

  2. What I want to know is, where the hell you came up with the ships in the first place.

  3. @Beccy Blue and white towels with ships on them are cool, even if said ships are imaginary!

  4. I have pink and blue towel with anchors on it. I think that´s where the confusion arose…
