Weekend Writing Challenge: Sometimes We Argue

“Looks like we’re going to get some weather.”

“Well thanks for pointing that out.”

“What are you rolling your eyes for? There’s some nasty storm clouds brewing in the west.”

“Then maybe you should say nasty weather, instead of just weather, since we get weather every day.”

“It’s a figure of speech.”

“No it’s not.”

“Yeah it is.”

“For the love of Gawd, it’s just a stupid phrase you made up that doesn’t even say anything significant. Throw some adjectives in there somewhere.”

“Just because you were an English major doesn’t mean you know everything.”

“Yeah it does.”

“No it doesn’t.”

“This is the stupidest argument we’ve ever had. And don’t even TRY to argue with that.”

“Close the windows, it’s starting to rain.”

“Fine.”

“Fine.”

“You should have been a weatherman.”

“What? I can’t hear you – it’s pouring.”

“NOTHING! Let’s just enjoy the weather before it goes away.”

“You’re rolling your eyes again.”

“I am not.”
