Charlie’s Quotes – Self Centred

Charlie:“Stop playing that game now, it’s stupid, I want to go to sleep!”

Me (Faux hurt):“You don’t care about anything I care about”

Charlie:“Yes I do”

Me: “Like what?”

Charlie: “Me!”

Touché oh self-centred one.

Charlie’s Quotes – Stupid Ajar

There’s been a breakthrough people! The English language just got a little bit bigger thanks to Charlie after this conversation last night.

Charlie:
“Ajar is a stupid word”

Me:
“There’s no other word you can use to describe something that’s ajar though”

Charlie:
“Slightly open?”

Me:
“That’s two words”

Charlie:
“…Slopen?”

So there you go folks, you have been witness to the beginning of a new age of language! All thanks to one woman.

Snowpocalypse

We had a massive downpour of snow in the night and this morning Charlie called up from downstairs as I was shaving:

“The snow has broken the sky!”

“What?!” I shouted as I looked out the window to try and see whatever Aurora Borealis-esque crazy shit she was referring to, wondering what the hell was going on.

“Yeah, there’s no TV signal!”

Sigh!

What I expected to see, but obviously with more snow

What I expected to see, but obviously with more snow

What I actually saw. Boring!

What I actually saw. Boring!

For non-UK residents, an explanation – Sky is the name of a popular satellite television subscription service. Other services are available.

Charlie’s way of starting a conversation

Charlie:
“Sixteen Twenty Six!”

Me:
Blank Stare

Charlie:
“You’re either angry or you don’t know what I’m talking about.”

Me:
“I have no idea what you’re talking about.”

Charlie:
“Sixteen Twenty Six! That’s when the train is arriving on Sunday, you need to pick me up from the station.”

Me:
“You seem to think its odd that I didn’t immediately get that. You basically just shouted a number in the middle of eating a mince pie and I’m supposed to know what the hell you mean.”

Charlie:
Giggle

Me:
“You could have at least given me a fighting chance by saying twenty-five past four. At least then I wouldn’t think you were yelling random years out.”

Charlie also seems to believe that words such as “he” and “she” are magic, and that if she changes the person she’s referring to when using one of these words, you will not need to be informed and will know psychically.
