While killing time working diligently on a project at work, I chatted with SomeMonkey. She, in turn, was cleaning papers off her desk at home that hadn't been dealt with in a couple of years.
SomeMonkey: oh no
there's a baby announcement in here
me: uh oh
you had a baby!?!?!?
someone wanted to give you one??!?!
SomeMonkey: hell to the no
me: wait
why didn't you send me a gift for my baby?!?!
SomeMonkey: psh
me: i kept waiting for you to acknowledge it
SomeMonkey: had i SEEN it, i wouldn't have sent a gift
me: not even for MY baby?
wow, you are SO not my BFF anymore
SomeMonkey: okay
a) you're not having a baby at the moment, crack head
b) you are not the one who sent this
To which I say - Oh YEAH?!?!

Because really I didn't have much of a comeback. Damn.

Well... it could have been from you, I guess.

And she totally should have acknowledged it and sent you a gift.

SomeMonkey = 1. Cate = 0. Better luck next time! :P

You do have fun don't you.

Of course, the ultimate way to deal with not having a comeback is to answer a pretend phone call on your mobile (cell) and chat away to an imaginary friend.
