He Said WHAT?!
Mid-afternoon on Sunday She said, “Lunch was pretty light and it’s four hours until dinner.Â Would you like a snack?”
He was staring intently at his computer and didn’t look up from his typing.Â “Uhm, yeah.Â How about … not a sandwich.Â Maybe a coke and something chippy.”
She said, “Something, what?”
Without a pause in his work He answered.Â “Chippy.Â Something chippy.”
She said, “You want coke and a chippy?”
He said, “Yeah.”
She said, “Okay. I can probably do that.Â You want your chippy with or without syphilis?”
His fingers froze above the keyboard.Â He turned his head to look at her.Â She could actually see him mentally hit rewind and review the conversation.Â “Oh!” He grinned sheepishly.Â “Hold the syphilis.Â Just bring me a Coca-Cola and whatever snack chips we have in the house.”
“Right,” She said.Â “One rolling pin coming up.”
ROTFL The best part was the frozen fingers combined with the mental rewind. 🙂
Karen, being from the PNW, I did not have to define chippy for you?
Hmmm, I’d a been in trouble too. My dictionary is on ‘His’ side also.
My Online Slang Dictionary said names for # 1: fish and chip shop; # 2: a carpenter; # 3 a ‘floozie’; and # 4: a California Highway Patrolman.
Good story. 🙂 It just goes to show how easy it is for a guy to be in hot water.
Jim — urbandictionary.com #3 – a female prostitute, especially a young and inexpensive one
Scratching head….I’ll admit, this one went over my blonde head.
Church Lady — you probably don’t see many chippies in the sanctuary.
Hahaha. Your sense of humor is measured in the days of Amoeba’s life.
Doug — is that bad?
“Wow, dude, the Quillster really laid it on OC that ti … Dude! What are you doin’ wit’ the Doritos?!?”
“What it looks like I’m doin’, dude.”
“Makin’ a pile on the table an’ coverin’ the pile wit’ what yer new shoes came in? Ew. Like, for why?”
“Jus’ tryin’ to help OC out.”
“Out the door, maybe. What is this?”
“‘A box on all your chippies’, dude.”
Dudes, be careful. I believe the pox is something one gets from a chippy. In fact, it is probably one of the nicer consequences of partying with such a girl.
Just found you, and laughed out loud!
Linda — welcome. I am glad we tickled your funny bone!
I don’t know what a chippy is.
Gigi — that’s probably just as well. However, if you’re curious, you can look at Jim’s comment (the second one from the top) and my answer.
Mmmmmmm not sure what this is about. :#
Akelamalu — American slang. Amoeba asked for a cheap hooker.
This would have gone over my head, too, until I saw the definitions above. I’d never heard that term for them before. Love the frozen fingers and mental rewind, too.
Barbara — apparently it is west coast slang. I didn’t realize it was regional or I likely wouldn’t have written the post.
I knew what it was, and would have thought the same thing. I probably wouldn’t have SAID it, but I would have thought it.
