The clerk, as to me I’m checking out of the motel: “Is your wife participating in Pedal to the Point this weekend?”
Me: “Yup. Riding two straight days for charity!”
Clerk: “She’s helping my family out. My sister was just diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.”
Me: “Oh, that’s awesome!”
Me: “…I sure hope you know what I meant to say.”
Clerk: “You betcha.”
