Me (Reading this season’s CostCo catalogue): Oooh, Costco have a discount on Pianos. Can I have a Piano?
Him (paying something less than 100% attention as he focusses on the latest goings-on in Weatherfield): Yes, mmmm.
Me (sensing I can probably get a yes to anything at this point): Can I have a puppy? (I’ve longed for a puppy for ages)
Him (sobering up): Absolutely not.
Me: But a puppy takes up far less room than a piano.
Him: Yes, but a piano doesn’t shit on the sofa.
