There’s an ad on the radio right now for a furniture company that “will do anything to save you money”. They go on about having turned the heat off to save money and the customers won’t even have to take their coats off. At the end of the ad the furniture guy gives a gift to his incredulous co-worker: overalls, the wrapping paper crackling in the background. And there the fun began.
Eden: “He gave her what?”
“Eden: “What’s that?
Liberty: “Overalls. It’s paper that covers your whole body.”
Eden: “Why would she want paper?”
Liberty, oh so matter-of-factly: “She just does. It was a present.”
I finally felt the need to step in. “Overalls, honey. Coveralls. Kind of like snowpants.”
And no one, even those who were quite admittedly wrong in their explanation of overalls, looked the slightest bit sheepish. Oh, to be the oldest and need to be right. Funniness.
