A recent IM conversation I had at work

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

Me: “Don’t you want to roll your eyes at people who don’t know the difference between stationary and stationery?”

Him: “It’s an easy mistake – the only way I remember it is that e goes with envelope.”

Me: “I remember it because e goes with letter… which, now that I think about it, is a completely useless mnemonic device.”

“Did Thomas Edison invent the light bulb or the telephone?”

“I don’t know… both?”

“Or did Albert Einstein invent the light bulb?”

“Maybe.”

“I can’t remember.”

“I think that Thomas Edison invented both… but then again, Annie, I’m not very smart.”
