the following conversation actually took place last week at dinner:
(foreword: my roommate is sean. we live in an apartment on the corner of his parents' house. tom is sean's stepdad, debbie is his mom. the former occupant of our apartment was a dirty, dirty person who had nasty ferrets and had little money or cleaning skills.)
(the scene: dinner, 6PM, last thursday.)
EVERYBODY: chatter chatter
PATRICK: Tom, I may move out when Sean gets married. I know I said I would like to stay, but I'm not sure I can afford it. You think you can find somebody else?
TOM: I'm sure I can find somebody. Just give me advance notice.
SEAN: (jokingly) Are you sure you don't want to just rent out to another indigent, long-term occupant?
TOM: (grinning) I've got two of those right now.
PAT: I'm not indigent!
SEAN: I'm not long-term!
It was like right out of a movie. Seriously.
