The historian: That's why, when I stopped at the 7-Eleven on my way home for a bottle of Coke, except I bought Dr. Pepper instead, at the cash register, I said to myself, "That's a Cadbury egg," and I bought one and ate the whole thing in the car.
Me: So you think that's fine, eating Easter candy now? Even though it's Lent?
Historian: Well . . .

Historian: Also, the desire to text.
Me: [mirth redoubled]
Historian: Also, . . . what is that? Twittering.
