Tones

This past weekend Lisa and Mike went on an adventure to buy a thank you gift. There was some initial disagreement over how much they should spend.

Mike: “But I like giving people more than what they expect.”

Lisa (choosing, for once, affection over argument): “You give me more than what I expect.”

Mike: “And just look at all the rewards I reap from that.”

(Pause while Lisa tries to figure out whether or not she is being mocked.)

Lisa: “There better not have been any sarcasm in your tone there, young man.”

Mike: “Lao has six tones, honey. And we both know that you’re not always very good at distinguishing between them.”
