Dave: What do you want for an anniversary present?
Me: A compost pile.
Dave: No one wants a compost pile. Are you crazy?
Me: Can’t you build me a compost pile?
Me: How about a little one…we can make it out of those old boards over there.
Dave: Those boards are ROTTEN. They will last, like, 3 weeks, and then they will disintegrate into nothingness.
Me: Ok. Let’s make a compost bin like your mom’s then, you know, with those clever little planks of wood that stack up.
Dave: I’m not doing that. Plus, are you even CONSIDERING that a compost bin will attract humonguous rats that will come and eat at it like it’s a buffet? Do you want rats hanging around? I think you do. I think you’d actually LIKE rats hanging around the house. You’d probably be like “hi,” and you’d be giving them treats.
Dave: NO compost bin. So, let’s go to that new restaurant on the bay for our anniversary. Ok?
Me: Sure. Ok.
