Me: I need a word.
Me: No, I need a specific word. I’m pretty sure it starts with an “I” but it’s not influence or instigation. It’s like…subconscious related.
Me: Um, no – too profound. Insight. Implication. Im…
Thom: I’m going to need a little more here. And stop yelling “I” words while I’m thinking.
Me: Maybe innuendo…INNUENDO! Never mind, it’s not innuendo.
Thom: But at least you’ve found the perfect name for a Native American Boy Band.
Thom: Like Menudo?
Me: About the chemo brain today. Take the witty down a notch.
Thom: Are you sure it starts with an “I”?
Me: I guess not.
Thom: Let’s do this systematically then – aardvark?
Me: Why do I call you for help again?
Me: Infiltration? Oh wait, I went back to the “I’s” again. Damn. I guess I really think it starts with an “I”.
Thom: Go with agoraphobia.
Me: It’s not agoraphobia.
Thom: Are you sure?
Me: You kick puppies, too, don’t you?
Thom: How about insidious?
Me: That’s an adjective. I’m pretty sure I want a noun.
Thom: So it’s a noun that starts with “I” – are you flexible on either of those fronts?
Me: Oh hell, I’m just going to use instigation.
Thom: Yeah! Screw the English language. What has that bitch ever done for you?
Me: That was incredibly helpful. I’m never speaking to you again.
