We go to get our hair cut at the salon, Lucy goes first. I can hear her talking the whole time, but can’t hear what she’s saying. Then it’s my turn in the chair.
Me: So I heard Lucy talking your ear off.
Her: Oh yeah, she’s such a sweetie. She was just telling me how she could speak German.
Me: (pause) Beg pardon?
Her: Well she was just telling me some of the words she knew, so I asked her if she could speak German and she said she could.
Me: I can actually assure you that she can’t.
Her: Really?! Are you sure?
Her: Wow! Well, she had me fooled. I don’t know any German, so I just figured she did!
