So I go in to pay for my gas this afternoon and there are four clerks behind the counter: Young woman, middle-age woman, 30 something man and old(er) woman. They are all talking to each other about pills.
Yw. says "I take some pills every day."
30sm. says "You know how many pills I take?" and then flourishes a big zero with his thumb and forefinger.
Maw. says she takes some vitamins and a few pills.
Ow. who is taking my payment says "You don't want to know how many pills I take! $27.38"
That's when I suddenly join the discussion. "Wow, that's a lot of pills!" I say, and then after all four lend their attention, "Twenty seven thirty eight??!"
