(Lenore is retiring. Tuesday, July 31, 2012 is her last day and sadly, very sadly in fact, I will be away on a business trip to Orlando and miss her farewell tour. When I came in this morning, I reminded her of this fact.)
Me: So, are you really gone next Tuesday?
Lenore: Yes sir, I'm done. El gone-oh.
Me: I won't be here. I have to go to that conference all next week.
Lenore: Oh, really? Where are you going?
Me: Orlando. It's going to be so muggy and hot.
Lenore: Florida? That's Florida, right? That place has a lot of colors and people wearing shorts.
Me: Yes, I guess. My hotel is supposed to have a really nice pool.
Lenore: Great, I'll get my bikini.
Lenore: (swatting at the air) No.
