you: you know, I'm thinking we should make the deadline christmas
you: yeah, you know, just have there be nothing to do when we come back for christmas.
you: see my point? I mean we could finish next week and yay, but the deadline is december.
me: yeah, no, that makes total sense. I see your point.
how the conversation should have gone:
you: you know, I'm thinking we should make the deadline christmas.
me: are you completely fucking crazy? there is no fucking way. nutjob.
